    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.

    Pros

    People were very friendly and easily approachable. The culture was very relaxed, but when you have to meet deadlines, there are long work days.

    Cons

    Often times, there would be team conflicts. This would put you in a very difficult situation if you are in the middle of it.

    Pros

    Great exec team; great software

    Cons

    Attention to stock price has downstream consequences; unable to truly compete in large hospital systems; strategic accounts team is puny compared to Carefusion.

    Advice to Management

    Increase brand awareness; be more willing to sacrifice margin in order to compete on key deals

    Pros

    Friendly culture overall - great founder and CEO

    Cons

    Very hierarchial culture - with the feedback of employees not sought or paid attention to. Extremely high turnover in certain functions. Lot of growth but company slow in investing in the infrastructure to manage the growth. No seat at the table for rank and file employees

    Advice to Management

    Open up to address some of the cons listed above

    Pros

    Nice working environment. Nice people. A lot of people have been staying with the company for a long time. Flexible work time.

    Cons

    A little hard for new people to blend in. Lack of career growth opportunities or development. Lack of innovation culture.

    Pros

    My manager was open-door, pay was good, opportunity to learn new software and skills

    Cons

    Constant shifting of responsibilities creates confusion when not planned for at all, training for a completely new position was not a priority for management but not completing unknown tasks unacceptable, background check on hire was unorganized

    Advice to Management

    Allow questions from subordinates when making major changes so answers to potential issues can be addressed, especially when you are unaware of what the subordinates do.


  11. Not a bad company, Management tends to bog down the employees.

    Pros

    Rapidly growing customer base. Majority of employees are very qualified, smart, and go beyond the call for their customers.

    Cons

    Difficult for upper Management to keep up with the pace with growth, thus making it difficult for other employees. Hard to find time to take off, due to backup issues and they always ask for more. Sometimes very overwhelming when you add in hours of travel to customer accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people who are in front of the customer representing the company many times a day. When the front line asks for something, they need it and need it now. I recommend quick response, and follow-up for the sake of the company and customer. Upper management seem like cheerleaders instead of managers and only care about making the sale.
