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

    Pros

    All the engineers are helpful in getting people on board. The company is value based, so people who contribute the most value are the most recognized.

    Cons

    The technology stack is very old, and it is also a Microsoft shop. Getting things done in legacy code is usually slow and error-prone because of the age and size of the code base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I honestly do not know what you can do. I understand that Omnicell needs to consistently add value to the customer, but engineers are not happy with the current code base. The problems the engineers solve (in my opinion) are not that exciting and it seems like we are losing out in top engineering hires.

    Seems to be a filler position for most until the next best thing comes along. Little growth.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is reasonable and depending on your manager, there could be a great work-life balance. You have to be in control of it though. Very laid-back office environment. I would recommend this job to a friend but with some warnings.

    Cons

    If you don't have a management title, although the experience and knowledge is there, you may not be heard of or taken seriously. The company does a reorg almost every year and the turnover rate seems to stay in the double digits year after year. I've been here for several years, I don't feel safe in the stability of my position because of this. Not sure if the company is focused on their direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what your employees are buzzing about.

    Pros

    Best life work balance, it's a great place for old people who wants a place to stay until retirement

    Cons

    because of the medical industry's growing too slow, you do get the chance to work on some real channellings projects.

    Ok company to work for. Has a lot of potential for growth if Sr. Mgmt/Executive Staff will stick with one plan.

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from remote when needed, high-tech. Plenty of opportunities for online training. Keeps its employees well informed of the company's quarterly financial performance.

    Cons

    High Turn over, marginal salary increases. Sr. Mgmt/Executives constantly changing direction with company's focus on new products and product enhancements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work to retain your top talent, not just let them walk out the door taking their experience and knowledge with them.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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