    Pros

    Overall, Omnicell employees work hard, are passionate about their work, and genuinely care about customers. Staff at headquarters works well with staff in the field. Solid engineering team. The CEO has a good reputation with customers and employees. His story and background make a compelling case for Omnicell products. Wish he was surrounded by stronger senior management.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits aren't exceptional. Senior management often fails to deliver on promises. The biggest issue is the constant reorganization. It leads to distrust of management and questions about job security.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees are your best assets - promote from within if it makes sense. Look for opportunities to expand your "good old boy" network. Solicit employee feedback and respond to it. Remember, it is hard to listen if you are busy talking over employees.

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Omnicell is updating much of the ancient MTS product line. The products are interesting to work on (robots and automation are cool). Great skills opertunities if you work on the right project. Recent Scrum process seems good. Really good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of very obsolete software. Recent marketing chaos is really damaging. Everything is rushed and high priority putting everything at risk. Some managers treat thier people badly. Awful raises.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a long term plan for success. Try to create a sustainable work environment.

    Got to work with some nice people.

    Very low pay. Impossible to get a decent raise. No real chance of promotions but many false promises.

    Follow industry pay standards and give what everyone else pays. Stop making promises that you can't keep.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, gym and pay is competitive.

    Cons

    No work life balance and long hours. Unqualified management that you would never see in other companies be in charge of entire departments. Train these individuals to treat others with respect. They say they respect their employees but managements action show otherwise. Best to keep quiet if you want to stay employed at Omnicell .

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire qualified individuals to supervise and manage others.

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

    Pros

    Some good people doing the work of many more. Decent amenities: break room, onsite gym and half basketball court for employees. Not much else.

    Cons

    Little to no professional growth is possible unless you're friends with someone higher up. Unqualified management on many levels due to this stagnant method of promotion. New and current employees are not treated with respect, although this may vary from manager to manager. New employees start temporary and are often told that their services are not needed on a whim. In the length of time I was employed I was told 4 times take time off. If you are living paycheck to paycheck, this company does not value job security.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be held by qualified personnel. Select managers in this company definitely would not have equivalent positions in any other company. Even someone at the bottom can see that this company has its priorities backwards. To succeed, a company that produces a product should emphasize quality, innovation, personnel, and sales and marketing; in that order, but here at Omnicell, only sales and marketing seem to be the only thing upper management is interested in.

    Pros

    wonderful people to work with at levels below management. people work their hearts out and receive very few rewards for their efforts.

    Cons

    benefits are meager. told we must take all of vacation time accrued within specified time period. this benefit is not a benefit if there is no flexibility as to when it can be used.

    Advice to Management

    don't say one thing and do another. told that mandatory use of vacation would prevent future layoffs but the layoffs have never stopped
