    Pros

    two 15 min breaks one 30 min break, plenty of PTO, multiple shifts to choose from.

    Cons

    work-life balance, management always clash with each other so it never seems organized. there is no such thing as leadership in at this facility and a lot of favoritism , either they do not care or dont believe in communication. there is no place for advancement. no fault point system, if i crash, its still a point. ridiculous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too much too even care to list

    Pros

    The company is in a great industry with tremendous upside. Healthcare industry in prescription drugs with a population with aging demographics. Everyone has an opportunity to make an impact to improve the operations of the company to the benefit of employees and shareholders. The company has made great strides but it happens with fits and starts and is not consistently maintained.

    Cons

    The company has been challenged to overcome prior management's running of the company and the demons of the past 2000 - 2009. The technology systems and primary applications are severely outdated and investments in new technologies have yet to make an impact. Constant change in leadership has made employees feel less stable in their positions as each change brings structural changes, new middle management promotions, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to management's direct reports, they have the real story. Senior management is made up of primary "yes" men who are too fearful to tell the top executives how the business is going.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, good people to work with, if they stick around

    Cons

    Management more worried about the investors and their own stock options than taking care of their employees. Management trying to get out of their fancy offices to show they care, but it seems fake and contrived.

    Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Panama City, FL

    Pros

    decent vacation time, access to affordable health care, some good coworkers, free coffee if you make it on your own time.

    Cons

    the worst communication ever! no one relays important information to each other until the last possible minute. Lots of favoritism, coworker clichs, rampant gossip, barely functional equipment. pharmacists do as little as possible. never ever seen anything like it in all my years of work experience. management ignores problems. horrible morale, nothing done to improve work environment, no support from anyone in charge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees. they have valid complaints. you lose good employees and show extreme favoritism to those who you feel are indispensible. all employees, including you, can be replaced.

    Pros

    I like working with the pharmacists a lot of great coworkers I felt like I was helping out the elderly community to fill prescriptions right and get del. Out timely.

    Cons

    Management never worked in a long-term care pharmacy no clue how to manage went to some stupid rotating shift schedule no home life for people and they wonder why people are quitting at least one person a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow some back bones and get rid of staff who don't work and go by people's seniority for shift scheduling you have a lot of knowledgeable people at this location. Communication is void here and so is morale management is not respected here by anyone

    Pros

    The people i get to work with everyday make the experience at Omnicare so unique. My mentors have provided me the tools to suceed and have taught me so much in my time here. From the managers to the director and Chief Audit Officer, they have all been such an asset to the winning culture at Omnicare and I look forward to working with them in the future.

    Cons

    Training can be limited and HR needs an upgrade, but under the new leadership it is improving and i am confident that it will become a better place to work in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees and making the changes to improve the culture.
