    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Omnicell is updating much of the ancient MTS product line. The products are interesting to work on (robots and automation are cool). Great skills opertunities if you work on the right project. Recent Scrum process seems good. Really good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of very obsolete software. Recent marketing chaos is really damaging. Everything is rushed and high priority putting everything at risk. Some managers treat thier people badly. Awful raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a long term plan for success. Try to create a sustainable work environment.

    Got to work with some nice people.

    Very low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow industry pay standards and give what everyone else pays. Stop making promises that you can't keep.

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, gym and pay is competitive.

    Cons

    No work life balance and long hours. Unqualified management that you would never see in other companies be in charge of entire departments. Train these individuals to treat others with respect. They say they respect their employees but managements action show otherwise. Best to keep quiet if you want to stay employed at Omnicell .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you hire qualified individuals to supervise and manage others.

    I worked at Omnicell full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some good people doing the work of many more. Decent amenities: break room, onsite gym and half basketball court for employees. Not much else.

    Cons

    Little to no professional growth is possible unless you're friends with someone higher up. Unqualified management on many levels due to this stagnant method of promotion. New and current employees are not treated with respect, although this may vary from manager to manager. New employees start temporary and are often told that their services are not needed on a whim. In the length of time I was employed I was told 4 times take time off. If you are living paycheck to paycheck, this company does not value job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be held by qualified personnel. Select managers in this company definitely would not have equivalent positions in any other company.
    Even someone at the bottom can see that this company has its priorities backwards. To succeed, a company that produces a product should emphasize quality, innovation, personnel, and sales and marketing; in that order, but here at Omnicell, only sales and marketing seem to be the only thing upper management is interested in.

    I worked at Omnicell

    Pros

    wonderful people to work with at levels below management. people work their hearts out and receive very few rewards for their efforts.

    Cons

    benefits are meager. told we must take all of vacation time accrued within specified time period. this benefit is not a benefit if there is no flexibility as to when it can be used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't say one thing and do another. told that mandatory use of vacation would prevent future layoffs but the layoffs have never stopped

    Pros

    The products play a valuable role in hospital's provision of efficient and quality healthcare. The customers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Organizations do not work together well. Multiple examples of "us" vs. "them." A lot of distrust between organizations and immature behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more--with entire employee base and cross-functionally at the management level. Set an example in cooperating and supporting each other's organizations and recognize managers and employees who do this too.
