    Pros

    Was a good company that has regressed over the last few years. At one time cared about teammates, but no more. Profits over people.

    Cons

    Always restructuring pay........and it's always lower.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would not listen.....................

    I have been working at Owens & Minor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Systems are super easy. Antiquated but simple. Customers are great when their orders are filled on time and deliveries aren't late and wrong, but that hasn't happened in over a year in a regular basis.

    Cons

    Having to smooth over customers because the operation has been in a tail spin for over a year due to new GM and weak leadership that don't have the customers best interest in mind. There only concern is serving their own needs and not caring about internal/external customers. Purchasing manager is never around and doesn't provide leadership to the team. Customer service manager is overbearing. Office manager doesn't as little as possible but acts like they are he glue holding things together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This used to be a large company with a small company feel. Need to get back to that. You got rid of the wrong people when you replace the GM and others.
    You've lost touch and confidence with employees and customers.
    Get a grip.

    Pros

    Great people! Very team oriented environment. Everyone is willing to lend a hand and get the job done.

    Cons

    Low pay! Going through a lot of changes in management and not producing very good results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. Give raises to congratulate hard workers. You are going to see a lot of people leave if you don't start rewarding.

    Pros

    there is not one good thing about working here

    Cons

    This place is treats their employees horribly- time off, hours, compensation, promotions. They will fire you at any given moment. I have a family and worked there 3 yrs and was treated like garbage. I thought maybe it would get better but it never did. upper management talks down to you, treats you inhumane, and do not care about you or anyone else who works there. they go through employees weekly and daily; highest turnover rate I have ever witnessed.

    Pros

    Great Hours.Pay rate is not bad.

    Cons

    Management is very Toxic, dishonest. and things are swept under the carpet, lot of backstabbing goes on. But, Like the Los Angeles office.Management repeats confidential information that should remain in the Corporate office. However, Great Parties when supposed to be working.
