    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 have been working at Omnicare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interview process was great. First day was great...awesome learning environment for a novice.

    Cons

    If you are attempting to make friends with your coworkers, THIS is not the place. Several of the YOUNGER employees turn their noses down on the new people and refuse to help.

    Management is very unorganized and will have you working outside of your job description. Doesn't show any compassion or concern for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show compassion to your employees. Take the time to listen to their needs and concerns and act upon them.

    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.

    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.
