    Pros

    The pros were my coworkers helped one another to help our patients. We all just want to help the patients, families and facilities in which we took care of.

    Cons

    There was no communication before I transfered departments, it was more about the bean counter and less about the patient. There were moments that it was quite embarrassing that I had to explain certain things when there was no explanation, but still struggled through it worth my apologies and world's do what I could to fix that problem, although they're were the same problems, that we continously happened, not every day issues. Major issues that I think now are being reviewed amma resolved. The raises are quite humorous, across the board, and I scored high on my review and still it was a joke, especially when mgmt even apologizes for it, because they are only given so much to desperse.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and realize that the workers actual care for the patients and facilities and need to be in the know to do there jobs effectively and to let your staff know they are doing a great job.

    Pros

    Nice benefits, nice people, very nice pay

    Cons

    No training, just kinda thrown into it. Everyone passes on things to the next person.

    Advice to Management

    Think of how to adequately train your employees then they wouldn't be so disgruntled.

    Pros

    The management at my location is very approachable. They give me a lot of autonomy and opportunity to exercise creative problem solving. They are very interested in employee ideas to improve.

    Cons

    A larger building would be nice. We're outgrowing our current location, IMO

    Pros

    Omnicare helps a lot of people and has provided me with many great opportunities

    Cons

    very disorganized and poor communication from executive level managers. Supervisors are expected to work all the time and average 50-60 hour work weeks and are not compensated very well at all.

    Advice to Management

    learn to treat employees and lower level managers with more respect. Don't put more and more of a workload on the current employees when you know they are about to breakdown because of their workload.

    You are a number, even your manager can forget you exist sometimes, and when they do not need you they let you go.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Downtown facility was nice (workout room). Company events throughout the year were fun.

    Cons

    Management. Senior level managers/directors need some coaching on how to treat their employees. If you aren't preforming well, even for a minute, you're out the door. Will not take the time to train, coach, mentor.
