    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Minimal stress environment - no multitasking. Pay was competitive.

    Cons

    No opportunity to utilize clinical skills. No opportunity to acquire meaningful pharmacy experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire older retail pharmacists because anyone else will not be able to stand the monotony.

    Pros

    Some flexibility, coworkers were nice

    Cons

    Lack of training, no real room for advancement, lack of organization, employees putting in minimal effort, lack of communication, lack of planning, lack of transparency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Text book management < experience. Get it together, keep employees apprised of changes being planned, don't just drop surprises without notice that people don't have time to adapt to or keep up with.

    Pros

    Omnicare is a great place to work. The people are energetic, dedicated and adaptable to change. Nitin and the rest of the Executive Leadership are doing all the rights things for us to be successful long term. The company is moving in a direction that is shedding the mediocrity and poor leadership of its past. There's a culture of success, in that slowly but surely people are focused on meeting and exceeding goals. While there's a ton of change, it's a helpful dynamic for people that want to feel that sense of urgency towards accomplishing goals from more than just themselves.

    Cons

    On the downside, constant change can have a negative effect on employee morale. The new direction, speed and accountability are not for everyone. So either get on the bus or watch us succeed from the sidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing for change, talent and culture

    Omnicare is not a good company to wor for

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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

    Pros

    I've been working here 8 months and I still love it. My coworkers are hard working, amazing people and I enjoy going into work. I feel like everyday I learn something new and it's great.The 'unlimited' overtime is a dream come true, especially coming from a corporate retail pharmacy. I'll admit training was extremely difficult at first since it's so different from retail, but after a few months it all sort of clicks.

    Cons

    Every job will have it's negatives. For this place I think it comes down to a few key things: The computer system is very difficult to get used to, if you're not good with computers this is not the place for you. If you have no Long Term Care pharmacy experience, training is a nightmare; this is very, very different from retail pharmacy. Theres a 'divide' between the day and night shifts, mostly caused by a drastic difference in workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread out the delivery runs, that way night shift isn't doing 5 runs while the day shift does 1.
