    Horrible scheduling

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    A complete waste of time

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Sharon Hill, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sharon Hill, PA

    Pros

    The occasional free lunch or birthday party (what else can I say?)

    Cons

    Office politics, shortage or complete lack of communication between managerial entities, wasting talent, loose (suspicious?) business practices (not good when a business's trade is narcotics)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your communication lines straight (between yourselves as well as between you and your workers). Take the bull by the horns, lead, and start operating intelligently and with accountability; in other words start acting like responsible adults. Start recognizing and making best use of talent (as you claim you already do) instead of wasting it. Operating politically and promoting the incompetent is not going to help your business.

    Poor training & development

    Not much to say other than it is a job.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Hmmm, its a job? There is potential but the problem is everyone has that "lets just get it running again" mentality when something breaks..which it does all the time. Instead of trying to fix it from happening again!! If they..management..would just take the initiative to correct the stupid things...

    Cons

    See above. Salary is ok. Benefits SUCK. Team work is nonexistent. Unstable applications and systems make it difficult to support our clients and for them to service their patients! Most of our clients hate us for that specific reason and several are considering leaving or have already. Applications look like an amateur built. Im not technical, but i think i could do a better job.
    Corporate..Omnicare..is disengaged and has troubles of their own. Including having to recently settle a 50 million dollar fine by the DOJ because of some questionable practices by excellerx. Public info, look it up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wow,a lot to say here. So, I will just simply say "where is it (management)?" I have never been around so many people that have no business being in the positions they are in.
