    Advice to Management

    Know your employees it unbelievable to have worked there a year and 5 month have sat in front of your desk and you didn’t even know my name. When it came down to leaving the managers had nothing positive to say and made me feel like I was solely dependent on diplomat. It’s discouraging and I left feeling no better about the place. There’s a lack of communication between departments and for dealing specialty drugs the...

      Pros

      I left Diplomat mid-2018. With the perspective of having been gone for six months, I appreciate how truly and exceptionally talented the staff is across many different departments. Being early in my career, it was an excellent place to learn alongside many outstanding professionals. I miss my coworkers every day. Other highlights: -Career advancement tracks -Hard work is rewarded -Clear sense of purpose -Good...

      The big downside of working at Diplomat is that "work/life balance" doesn't exist. In my experience, 40 hours wasn't enough. 60 was standard and 80 wasn't unheard of. After three years, I ran out of steam. Diplomat is a good fit if you're a workaholic. Or, if you're looking to accelerate your career, it's a good place to learn -- you have to think of it like grad school.

        Cons

        Not too many things to do, Same exact thing over & over, not very challenging, not to mention low pay.

          Pros

          Direct supervisors genuinely interested in growth of employees

          Cons

          Focus from patient care to dollar signs since going public. A whole new executive leadership team is making changes to adapt, grow and keep investors happy however the high touch patient care we once had seems to be diminishing. Beginning to feel more like one of the "Big Box" pharmacies instead of the local pharmacy it was years ago. Compensation is lower than industry average.

          Good lunch vendors Weekends off Able to help people in need if you do it under 30 seconds.

          Cons

          Management consistently looking for petty new rules to lower quality of life for employees. They do not promote based on skill, this is a popularity contest. Heavy Favoritism in the company. You are always under the "watchful eye" of leads and supervisors and hounded 24/7. Be prepared for threats of termination over the smallest errors. Brand new lights in the building really emphasized how disgusting the building...

          Advice to Management

          It's very clear this USED to be a great place to work, with their flags boasting "2015 Best Workplace". However it is now 2018 and those times are long gone. Employees were once inspired and empowered, now they are simply micromanaged. Instead of focusing on destroying morale you should try to help employees in need when they come to you. Cut out favoritism, focus on employee performance. Leads are obviously chosen because...
