    I have been working at Omnicare as a contractor

    Pros

    As a contractor, you are welcomed and thanked for supporting. Easy to learn, great closed door facility with no need for a uniform.

    Cons

    Management and corporate seem to make decisions and expect the employees to be okay with decisions. Employees are constantly and passive aggressively complaining about management, instead of actually taking a stand to get things adjusted or at least understood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and work with them for either side to understand work related situations. .

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It pays the bills (to a point), a lot of opportunity to learn, some great coworkers

    Cons

    Zero support from corporate office, no advancement opportunities at all, constant micromanagement in a very understaffed, overworked environment. Morale is horrible, no incentives, no bonuses, constant stress, no teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate office needs to treat their branches with respect and give their employees real incentives and goals. Employees should be proud of who they work for and not dread going to a job where they are not valued.

    I worked at Omnicare

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits even as contractor

    Cons

    Archaic administration mentality, not cutting edge on anything but cars. Limited opportunity to become a "real" Toyota employee (contractors have sometimes been on-site for 12 years).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to your contractors as legitimate employee source. Get with the program on work-from-home, software, equipment.

    Pros

    The team. Your peers. My manager

    Cons

    No onboarding or training at any level. Understaffed for the volume of work. No career path. Corporate expectations are not achievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. Cutting payroll throughout the company may make your stock price look great but you are killing your employees and losing customers. The bottom will fall out!

    Assembly line pharmacy

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Omnicare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good 401k good Benefits. Work with great people for the most part.

    Cons

    Horribly managed company, more work than can ever be accomplished, causing constant stress to make quotas and delivery times. The wheels have come off the hub and spoke model, and because it does not work there is constant Fine tuning of a broken system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that it requires people to be able to service customers and unhappy customers will eventually leave.
