    Hospital division was a fun, supportive place to work right up until they didn't need you any more.

    I worked at PharMerica full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere with great networking among other sites. Everybody recognized that we all have lives outside the workplace. Nobody at my site got worked to death, very diferent from most healthcare companies.

    Cons

    All jobs are contracted to other companies' hospitals so you have 2 bosses, sometimes pretty challenging. Highest level of hospital division sometimes clueless of customers' plans, sometimes just doesn't share well. Could have worked harder to help place employees displaced due to lost contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try telling the truth sometime. You'll find it refreshing.

    I worked at PharMerica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Located in Louisville's east end the office is away from the bridge traffic. There were many very good mid-level managers.

    Cons

    Most of the good managers or employees I worked with or hired have left the company for a better work life balance and a less caustic leadership style. The constant use of profanity including the F word and yelling or screaming during meetings and conference calls became overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture is created at the top of the leadership structure. Replacing Greg Weishar will make an excellent start both culturally and financially.

    Pros

    opportunities to take on different roles, different positions, good work life balance, opportunities for OT, will gain experience working across different facilities, remote access/work from home

    Cons

    pay is average to low, not much room for advancement, pay stays the same even when taking on new job titles, responsibilites

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay raises should be commensurate with merit, achievements, time with company, upper management is too far removed from day to day operations to have any meaningful input

    Poor project management
    It seems like making the company look better from the outside is more important than making the company better from the inside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money and make your workers life better. Stop focusing on the bottom line and your stock price.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, competitive with retail and other LTC as far as pay is concerned, office environment, low-key, pharmacy director/manager cares about the employees, open-door policy with director

    Cons

    Cross-training is not encouraged, scheduling is always wacky & last-minute, forever short-staffed, low moral, office administrator seems non-existent, H/R questions will never be answered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The standards should be consistent/fair for all employees. Those that work hard are consistently picking up others' slack.
