    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You have lots of freedom, you own your own business and have respect from buyers and others at hospitals.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to grow your commissions each month due to so many GPO contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel management is doing a good job at local DC, however C suites might need to rethink their goals and objectives for Wall Street investors.

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The teammates at O&M are great. They are the foundation of the company and many of them take pride in being O&M employees. It is great getting to connect with people in distribution centers all across the country and the customers we serve. They offer internal training/classes through OMU and are big fans and supporters of continued education.

    Cons

    O&M has changed over the years and their focus on the important things has slipped by the wayside. There is too much focus on the politics instead of the company and what it was founded on. It no longer has that "family" feel that it once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management would benefit by listening to the employees...the everyday workers that do the work that keeps O&M's customers happy and keeps the company at the forefront of the industry. There are too many chiefs making decisions without true knowledge of what the Indians are encountering everyday. Listen to the regular people. You will find that they have great ideas and want to see the company succeed as well.

    I worked at Owens & Minor as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, everyone at the office was very kind.
    Gained a lot of hands on experience from the lead developers
    Easy to work with people in a team environment

    Cons

    They had no plans on offering a full time position to any interns
    The internship program ended and they let every single one go
    I wish there was a training course that was offered to interns

    Pros

    I can't speak for everyone at O&M but every person I have worked with at O&M is honest, hardworking and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher however the fact that I like who I work with makes up more than enough for the slightly lower pay scale.

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time

    Pros

    Company has high respect for their employees, and does well to recognize talent and performance. I had a great supervisor and was really excited about working there with my team.

    Cons

    I question the direction of the organization at the highest levels. Often there are too many priorities because of the need to invest in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one path to growth and stability.
