    Pros

    Pays the bills
    Decent salary
    401k is average
    PTO is ok
    Tuition reimbursement covers a class or two per year
    Discount on parking or public transit

    Cons

    No longer part of Omnicare- generous stock option program is gone
    Very hectic with recent merger- bad time to come on board
    Really strict with scheduling- no ability to work remote unless you are grandfathered in a WFH position
    Technology is outdated and difficult to work with
    Cube farm environment
    No room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Can you un-sell the company?
    It would be nice to know where we will be located next year
    Be prepared for a mass exodus if you move to NJ
    Invest in better technology

    Pros

    Unlimited Coffee
    Desk Job
    Good Pay for a single person

    Cons

    *Office politics cost me my job
    *No room for advancement unless you were favored
    *The LTCSS department was the worse department to work for (If they do not like you, you are out)
    *Was a dedicated employee for six years with no promotion
    *Was denied a leadership position for someone with less experience and less seniority

    Advice to Management

    Investigate the LTCSS department. Nap time, movie time and congregations are the norm for them. Also, the supervisor and Team Leader in that department should be fired for favoritism

    I have been working at ExcelleRx

    Pros

    Great colleagues
    Air conditioned environment
    Unlimited coffee
    Seated environment

    Cons

    Horrible scheduling everyone whose initially hired is scheduled hours late until 11pm with no interest in if one has children to tend to. They should find an alternative to this late scheduling by having employees work from home this late in the day or rotate the late hours between all employees not everyone whose in their first year work every day till 11pm. They're losing employees to other companies who don't do this and will always have turnover unless they change.
    The call volume is also ridiculous with no time to breathe

    Advice to Management

    Stop scheduling till 11pm, offer it only as a work from home option or have everyone rotate, people have family and responsibilities. Everyone isn't single with no children. If you change this you won't be constantly hiring because people are constantly leaving.

    If you're a developer, you'll definitely have longevity in your position
