    I have been working at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The positive working for Omnicare / Advanced Care Scripts provides the ability to learn in the health industry. Having the opportunities to help different patients on numerous different levels.

    Cons

    The Hourly rate for Customer Service representatives could be better. Especially when the representatives consistently have to learn about new medications, processes, protocols, insurance plans, co-pay assistance programs. Working for a company who understands or knows the worth of their customer service representatives could or would make office moral better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just take a look at everything Customer Service Representatives have to learn in order to present the Core Values of Omnicare.

    I worked at Omnicare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people that I directly worked with were wonderful. In the beginning, it was a very good company to work for and the software design was excellent.

    Cons

    Low pay, new structure and new management did not care about loyal employees who had been there for 14 plus years. Morale down in office. Worry of outsourcing and RIF's.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Benefits and vacation time start right away
    - Plenty of opportunities for overtime
    - More vacation time offered for your first year than most companies offer

    Cons

    - Not much room for advancement
    - Managers act like friends instead of doing their job
    - Employees are overworked and underpaid
    - Raises are a joke
    - Too much drama amongst co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually care about your employees and give them raises that a person a can live off of. Offer more opportunities for growth. Create a friendly atmosphere for employees to work in. Train managers to do their job correctly and how to reward or discipline employees when needed.

    I worked at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, the work itself is challenging and interesting, received merit increases pretty quickly

    Cons

    After working for two different departments in Omnicare I noticed that they were managed like two totally different companies. My first manager was very hands off and let the department sink, but my second manager was a control freak that micromanaged every aspect of everyone's day. The attendance policy is awful and unforgiving and encourages turn over. Tried to get a medical exception for sudden health problems and it took four months to get approved. Had to schedule tests and procedures around work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees aren't robots and can't be managed off "data". Just because one person can do 15 claims one hour during one day doesn't mean everyone can average that all the time.

    I have been working at Omnicare

    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.
