    I worked at Omnicare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were on average with other companies. Paid time off was adequate and they were very accommodating with emergency time off.

    Cons

    The challenges of working there were , lack of promotion availability, unless you were a personal friend of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to all employees and their suggestions not just the opinions of friends

    Omnicare is not a good company to wor for

    I have been working at Omnicare

    Pros

    Dress how you want. They have a dress policy that isn't enforced.

    Cons

    A lot of unfairness by supervisors and management- complaints will result in retaliation even though they say it won't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees...a thank you goes a long way...and find out the REAL reason for your high turn around. Micro-managing is unpreductive to everyone

    Pay could be higher, pretty boring work,, employees seem to clique up bY race and language, location in the middle of nowhere (industrial offlice area) so lunch everyday is stressful, rosemont traffic sucks,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on individual location employee relations better.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    pay scale was average, benefits were ok,

    Cons

    scheduling was extremely haphazard and some employees were seemingly exempt from holidays and weekends and late nights--no fixed schedule for holidays, vacations, etc.. also no communication between staff (too many cliques) and management did not listen to employee suggestions or feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the the troops in the trenches, and don't show partiality to specific people and genders
