    Pros

    Met some great people working there

    Cons

    Long hours, below average pay, management was a joke, if you speak up you are blacklisted and they will try to get rid of you, workers are browbeaten and afraid, company disregards and constantly breaks labor laws

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone in management, from Craig Smith down, and start from scratch.

    Good company, good people, but they are not the O&M of old.

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The teammates at O&M are great. They are the foundation of the company and many of them take pride in being O&M employees. It is great getting to connect with people in distribution centers all across the country and the customers we serve. They offer internal training/classes through OMU and are big fans and supporters of continued education.

    Cons

    O&M has changed over the years and their focus on the important things has slipped by the wayside. There is too much focus on the politics instead of the company and what it was founded on. It no longer has that "family" feel that it once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management would benefit by listening to the employees...the everyday workers that do the work that keeps O&M's customers happy and keeps the company at the forefront of the industry. There are too many chiefs making decisions without true knowledge of what the Indians are encountering everyday. Listen to the regular people. You will find that they have great ideas and want to see the company succeed as well.
