    Pros

    Pharmacy Systems PSI manages 100 inpatient pharmacies in 8 states and the have many tools and resources for their directors of pharmacy that will help make them successful. There are many opportunities to network with many dedicated directors of pharmacy.

    Cons

    Much of the companies upper management, CEO, COO, and VPs are not pharmacists. They treat their directors as disposable workers that can be replaced at a whim to suite their needs. Their pay and benefits are below average. They micro manage their directors to the point that they become dissatisfied with their work as they become a cog in the machine and not supposed to think. The rarely if ever recognize exceptional work performed by their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop penny pinching and hire competent clinicians to lead your organization

    Pros

    Serving over one hundred hospitals in eight states provides ample opportunity for networking with fellow colleagues over a large network. They have a very good web site to tutor, research, and reference all aspects of hospital pharmacy. They have stellar marketing plan to serve primarily acute care hospitals; offering complete pharmacy services that include access to clinical pharmacists and legal assistance that would be difficult otherwise for a small rural hospital.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking. Many pharmacists find it frustrating to be in roles of a Director of Pharmacy at a hospital, to take direction from someone who has never worked hospital pharmacy or worse, not even a pharmacist.

    It confounds many employees how upper management is now recruiting outside the company for leadership roles and the new executives hired are not pharmacists or even individuals with MBA's.

    Many feel that their challenges and issues are not heard, and in all cases always favor the client who pays them and fails to support the employee.

    Advice to Management

    In short, listen to and find a way to better support your employees. Use your thinking skills to analyze why your turnover of pharmacists is so high.
