    I have been working at Biologics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People working here are fiercely driven to do what they can to make a difference in what is the darkest, most challenging time in a patient’s life. The employees and managers alike, do what they can to keep engaged in the common mission of patient care.

    There are a lot of employee functions that celebrate the hard work that is done on a daily basis. Potlucks, birthday and anniversary celebrations, corporate fund raising events, and outstanding customer service shout outs, make you realize you are part of something bigger and how much your contribution matters.

    Cons

    My only con is that the people that don’t share in this spirit stay with the company. If you are not engaged in wanting to help a person, perhaps find another role or place of business. There is no room in healthcare for people that cannot show empathy and compassion.

    There is always going to be corporate politics. The key is to stay focused on the holistic reason on what you do. Stay connected to the cause.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a path to excel and grow. Would like to see humanization of senior management. People not only need to feel connected to their cause but to the people steering the ship.

    I have been working at Biologics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with coworkers that care but are so burnt out and over the lies, they rely on each other. Then there’s the “do nothing and get by” class. You would think this group would be micromanaged but they get promoted. Reason being is they tell all the secrets to the VPs and are minions (I would call that manipulation and favoritism). Oh, and bonus pay is provided to some for unknown reasons or allowed to receive no points and violations to policies are overlooked. Note: join the in crowd and you will always have a position here at Biologics. You don’t have to have a degree. You just need to pucker, do as you’re told, follow direction of the upper managers whether right or wrong, don’t have an opinion unless you piggyback off of one of their ideas to stroke their ego (that’s because a lack of self esteem—probably comes from trama in their younger days).

    Cons

    VPs and management of Biologics are not transparent. After an employee survey stated what employees valued and what kind of change the employees wanted, POOF! Nada, nothing. Why? Do you ask. Majority of management are not professional, have limited management skills and are not even educated with the proper degree for their positions, are not qualified to resolve difficult employees to provide a positive outcome, and reason why they remain—Stuart Frantz. McKesson is starting to see the deficit in their capabilities and knowledge of how to run a Specialty Pharmacy.

    Advice to Management

    Try a different approach. Start with transparency. Let me help you out:

    easy to perceive or detect.
    "the residents will see through any transparent attempt to buy their votes"

    synonyms: obvious, evident, self-evident, undisguised, unconcealed, conspicuous, patent, clear, crystal clear, plain, (as) plain as the nose on your face, apparent, unmistakable, easily discerned, manifest, palpable, indisputable, unambiguous, unequivocal
    "a transparent attempt to win favor"

    having thoughts, feelings, or motives that are easily perceived.
    "you'd be no good at poker—you're too transparent"

    Try being forthcoming with information and changes that affect the company and the employees that remain for their personal reason (because it’s not from what your doing right, that’s for sure).

    Pros

    There were some before McKesson merger, not now.
    Free coffee is still a plus.
    The joy of knowing working here I’m serving and helping cancer patients.

    Cons

    If you search early reviews you will see that this company is notorious for favoritism and very hushed racism. Advancement is not based on tenure, education, or experience, it is by who you can get close to.
    HIPAA practices are sloppy and there are no standards to daily operations. Managers rate employees differently and upper management has no checks and balances to ensure that managers are being fair. Reporting this to McKesson means calling a 800 #. This is why hardworking employees are leaving and temporary workers are taking care of practices and patients. Trust me patients and providers can see the difference in the quality from years ago to now.

    Advice to Management

    Research deep and see what is going on. Make your open door policy really be open door.

    Pros

    Coffee is good, paid holidays and that's about it.

    Cons

    We used to take care of each other first. Now patients are just numbers, employees don't know each other, leadership tells other employees personal business to other employees and no one does a thing. Case in point, an employee was in the hospital, a CO told other employees where he was. That wasn't her story to tell and it was a breech of confidentiality. Biologics is a sinking ship. It's just a matter of time. They push people So hard they are having heart attacks and dying, people are becoming alcoholics, closet drug addicts yet they do nothing. People have reported it and have been labled troubled makers and forced out because they reported it, or told, you don't like it leave. All because theses people are friends with people on leadership. Funny, because Biologics is known for their partying with tons of alcohol.

    Advice to Management

    Look around, why are most of the good people leaving? Pretty soon there will be none of us left. We worked hard to build the Biologics reputation. You wonder why sales can't make their goals. It starts in operation. Maybe clean house and really listen to the veterans who still truly care about the patients and the services we always offered. That's why we were successful. Because we weren't like everyone else.

    Great culture, the HR team is great, moderate pay and benefits, good organizational mission

    Cons

    The acquisition by McKesson has significantly changed the culture and outsourced the HR team

    Advice to Management

    Management was great when I was there but the CEO has since left, so a lot has changed, not a lot of room for growth in general
