Pharmacy Systems PSI manages 100 inpatient pharmacies in 8 states and the have many tools and resources for their directors of pharmacy that will help make them successful. There are many opportunities to network with many dedicated directors of pharmacy.
Much of the companies upper management, CEO, COO, and VPs are not pharmacists. They treat their directors as disposable workers that can be replaced at a whim to suite their needs. Their pay and benefits are below average. They micro manage their directors to the point that they become dissatisfied with their work as they become a cog in the machine and not supposed to think. The rarely if ever recognize exceptional work performed by their employees.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Pharmacy Systems (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2012.
I first received a phone call from one of the principals of the company. I then met the regional manager (my boss to be) and the principal over dinner. The next step was to be interviewed by the Chief Nursing Officer of the hospital that I would be serving.
After having done all of the above, I was given an offer. I gave three weeks notice to my current employer and then reported to work as Director of Pharmacy.
- How do you respond to a hospital executive or your Pharmacy Systems manager when your thoughts on work priorities are different or there is conflict in what is supposed be done. 1 Answer
Very simple, at least for me. I knew what I expected after research of salaries. I wanted to make 8% more than I was currently making. Thus I asked for $130,000 and without any negotiation I received that amount.
Often I wonder now, if I could have asked more and would have received a higher pay. Did I "low ball" myself?
