    Pros

    Great new building, equipment, conf rooms, WiFi

    Cons

    Very hard to thrive in an environment where the distance between those empowered and those who are powerless gets larger every day. Respect is not earned easily. Too many reorganizations of middle management and too few leaders at the top. Compared to any other silicon valley software company this one truly lacks vision.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed from HP and walk among the people, listen to ideas, shift the sands less often. Stick to a vision to grow people Internally who are in different ranks than top tier.

    Pay and thats about it

    no interest in advancing employees careers at all. every manager has own agenda ahead of employee morale, employees are not respected on any level

    Advice to Management

    care more about who you hire and treat those at lower levels with respect. make morale a priority

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Omnicell

    Pros

    Good benefits package overall. Some good opportunities for collaboration- if you make it happen. Lots of need for talent beyond role confines.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted above Manager level. Conflicting stories on what it takes to get promoted. Some double standards there. A bit of "good ol boy" network. Learn to golf.

    Advice to Management

    Promote consistently and hire more Sr. positions from within. Make growth path clear and achievable, and ensure that the same standards are applied for ALL promotion choices.

    Do something to recognize longtime employees.

    Pros

    People who care about their work; niche products that are leaders in their specialties.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to get promoted unless you are politically oriented; regular (but not always successful) reorganizations of marketing structure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to the issues facing those doing the work in the organization - those in the field and in middle management.
