    Pros

    Not being tied to one particular work area. You are able to explore other areas outside of your primary responsibility.

    Cons

    Incompetent people. There were managers who were not supposed to be managers and PM's who were not qualified to be PMs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people.

    Pros

    Great customer base. Omnicell used to have a great staff and good middle management, unfortuntely most if not all those people have moved on either by their own choice and were forced out.

    Cons

    Extremely poor operations management. Dyfuntional management from company headquarters, company seems to lack any long term vision about it's staff. VP operations lived by this phrase regarding the operations staff. "Hire fast, fire faster." Not a good way to attract people of quality and it shows. I doubt upper management know or cares about how company is run, all they seemed to care about was what The Street thought of the company. Internally employee base ridicules customer base. They do not take customers suggestion seriously and out right ingore operations/install staff. Sad because years ago when I joined Omnicell it was a great place to work and the best work expereince I had. It ended as one of the worst. I would not go back to work there without a large salary increase and a change in operations management and additude.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to make some whole changes in upper management in the operations division. Spend some time doing some research into field operations and make wholesale changes where needed. That dividion is THE face of your company and right now it's the face of discontent. No one I worked with was happy with the way things were going.

    Pros

    Decent breakrooms and exercise room.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Little to no professional growth is possible. Some managers are very incompetent. This shows that this company has no vision if they hire and promote incompetent people.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be held by qualified personnel. Managers in this company definitely would not have equivalent positions in any other company.

    Pros

    Great new building, equipment, conf rooms, WiFi

    Cons

    Very hard to thrive in an environment where the distance between those empowered and those who are powerless gets larger every day. Respect is not earned easily. Too many reorganizations of middle management and too few leaders at the top. Compared to any other silicon valley software company this one truly lacks vision.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed from HP and walk among the people, listen to ideas, shift the sands less often. Stick to a vision to grow people Internally who are in different ranks than top tier.

    I worked at Omnicell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The engineering team is very helpful. Work environment is also good and practices followed like agile scrum.

    Cons

    A Lot: To get to the next level you must be NASA scientist. Management help is negligible for your career growth. To grow in the company you must be pleasing the entire menagement. For any open senior position the company never considers to promote their employees to excel their career. Very poli tics at every stage. The older employees in top management demonstrate themselves as they are always there to help grow in career but in actual they are dictators. Overall it is a management driven company.

    Advice to Management

    This is really funny. What advice will you give to management when they only are dysfunctional. Although my advices will be to get rid of those dictators.

    Pros

    Middle management was extremely supportive but not given the latitude to make decisions.

    Cons

    Upper management stiffled creativity and had a sell at all cost mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people and empower them to make decisions. The reason why the Soviet Union fell apart was due to centralized leadership.

    Pros

    The products play a valuable role in hospital's provision of efficient and quality healthcare. The customers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Organizations do not work together well. Multiple examples of "us" vs. "them." A lot of distrust between organizations and immature behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more--with entire employee base and cross-functionally at the management level. Set an example in cooperating and supporting each other's organizations and recognize managers and employees who do this too.
