    Pros

    Good Company to work for. Very supportive management and team. Good Benefits. You are free to cut your teeth and make mistakes and learn.

    Cons

    The Specialty Pharmacy, and Pharmacy Industry in general is in flux. Financially, the company isn't as strong as it once was. It will probably bounce back, but that's something to consider if you're looking to make a long term commitment to working at the company or one of it's type.

    Advice to Management

    Management is pretty good and honest with people. No real changes need to be made. They're doing a good job.

    Pros

    Company used to foster a positive environment for its employees and encouraged growth and furthered education.

    Cons

    Company views employees as indirect expenses and makes that very clear. Executive leadership makes poor decisions, employees pay the cost. You will not be valued as a member of the team. Pay scale is low for the work they want you to do. Unless you get a promotion or a new position, expect only a small (~3%) cost of living raise every year.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being putzes.

    Pros

    Great co workers. The employees really care about the patients and for the most part are very committed, hard working good people.

    Cons

    Lets be clear loved my job and I have been a consistent top performer. This is NOT sour grapes. Sales is money I get it. Diplomat pays under industry so unless you live in Flint your pay/benefits are way under par. Many accounts lost. Oncology is the only saving grace. Downsizing due to budget cuts!? Purchased/acquired multiple companies for BILLIONS. Hit with DIR fees, falsification of earnings, shareholders suing. Is this just the price of doing business? What started out as a great company disintegrated in mid 2016. Chaos/discord in every aspect of doing business from management to operation to HR. The focus is very much on acquisition, understandable for survival, however the foundation of Diplomat is very unstable. Employees as well as service has suffered. Many accounts lost. Mandated now to other SP

    Advice to Management

    LEAD-Acquisition yes to survive but should be second to having a solid infrastructure. The unprofessional-ism at corporate level and middle/upper management is blatant and astounding. You have failed at your job/responsibility to lead and you have let your employees down. Those employees who got the company where it is can be replaced yes however that is a paradigm to your corporate motto.
