    Pros

    It division is getting laidoff but we were told a few months in advance, with severence for the time you were there and I was about to get a promotion. But we recd Pto, my immediate supervisor, my co-workers are family.

    Cons

    Im getting laidoff along with everyone in my division. Moving it to two states in which one of them I know are not prepared and we have been fixing their mistakes. There was no real training. The raises are humorous. It has always suprised me that we all care for the patients and there needs but feel as though the bean counters care more about money and less about overworked employees in which in the long run will hurt the patients care.

    Advice to Management

    Everything above ive already said. It's not the my mgmt but from the top. This ceo needs to be on the dhow undercover boss. He would them know the grit of what actually happens day to day. The struggles that each one of us face trying our best to take care of our patients and facilities.

    Pros

    Benefits are offered, decent amount of pto

    Cons

    management is numbers driven and can't convince others they even buy into what's being pushed. Managed by being threatened. Employees are just a number.

    Pros

    The environment was really laid-back, but people did whatever it took to get the job done. I also interned there and felt they did a great job training/preparing me as a tech.

    Cons

    Heavy work load can be stressful, but that's the nature of pharmacy.

    Pros

    Free parking (far away though)
    Nice location and building
    OK salary
    Nice HR Department
    Corporate Office

    Cons

    Lower pay than other companies
    Upper Management isn't open and accessible to employees- the top floor is actually locked so only certain people get in- you rarely see them
    No growth potential (upwards) or career paths for HR at least
    Too many changing ideas (Change is good, but you don't get everyone excited about a plan and go with that plan hard core for many months and then decide you don't like it anymore and completely start over....)
    Too much work for one person in each role to truly be successful
    No bonuses for individual contributors
    Some upper managers don't like their direct reports for reasons outside of work and this causes conflict in the workplace

    Advice to Management

    Better train the employees and create career paths
    Be more visible- other companies the CEO's and upper execs come to face to face meetings with all levels of employees, are open to talk to them, etc.
    Offer better incentives and bonuses
    Hire managers for the right reasons

    Pros

    It is a job with benefits.

    Cons

    Everything. It has made very clear you are replaceable. Continually increasing expectation with no instruction or compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention.

    Pros

    A lot of overtime. Friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Overworked and under appreciated. Management thinks of only themselves and forgets that their employees also have families to go home to. No room for growth. Little to no training provided everything is trail and error. Do not expect a raise or pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees. Happy employees will in return put in more work and time to get the job done with no questions asked. Offer training before throwing in technicians to a system they do not know just to be set up for failure
