    I worked at Omnicare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Omnicare (OCR) for many years and was able to advance from the entry level at which I started. There are so many good people at this company!

    Cons

    For a time, the company wasn't centralized so policies and procedures weren't always consistent. That changed as time went by.

    Advice to Management

    Taking good care of the external and internal "customers" is worth the effort. Employees were very engaged when treated well.

    Pros

    opportunities to perform many different tasks and to be engaged in many projects. Good resume builder and good experience builder.

    Very aggressive and poor communication. There are regimes of power and they tend to conflict frequently. You have to be willing to navigate the politics.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PTO, flexible work schedule, gym in the building, career opportunities, interesting job market

    Cons

    Acquired by CVS so the future is unknown. Wasn't the greatest team in the world - minimal accountability and supervision, which was extremely frustrating when certain employees were slacking around. Bi-yearly one-on-one meetings with supervisors (big issue if not happy with team or job).

    Advice to Management

    Take time to make better fitting hiring decisions. Some individuals are hired from referrals and have zero qualification for the job at hand. Have more one-on-one meetings with employees to gain their input about the team, processes, and career aspirations. Reprimand (better yet, get rid of) toxic employees who take advantage of working on a team -- projects reminded me of being in college and having to take the lead because the other members were drunks or didn't care. The lack of accountability really demeans my view of Omnicare. It affects the overall way I view the culture of the company, my motivation towards work, and my desire to stay with the company.
