    Pros

    Very supportive and collaborative environment, best corporate culture I've ever worked in, onsite cafeteria and gym with classes/trainers, very nice corporate HQ office, they celebrate birthdays monthly with cake/fruit, a lot of transparency, good leadership

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits could be better but I think much of that is due to the ACA and not O&M

    Pros

    You will always have a job, because they are a medical distribution company. Can train in other areas, as long as you are a good worker they work with you to move up. No experience needed as they will train you. Pay is pretty good

    Cons

    Over the holidays OT can add up which can be a pro also because it's more money Very hot in the summer

    Pros

    There are a lot of oppurtunities for advancement within the company. Great to start off a career in the medical field

    Cons

    The downside is that as a pandac analyst, I have more than one boss, and the work environment brings stress.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more emphasis on employee culture. To elAborate, more interaction between management and employees throughout the company. That would be nice
