I worked at PharMerica full-time

Pros

* Great ops and sales teams in areas I worked with; Always very hands on and served the client's best interest

Cons

* Professionalism slides as corporate office is in Louisville, KY (short skirts, flip flops, shorts, etc. are tolerated)
* Routine, inescapable gossip
* Most work/projects piled on to the 2-3 dependable work horses for completion
* Too many new, un- QA’ed projects shuffled onto workload by management before completion of the previous one
* Constant change in upper management; discord and resentment between internal teams
* No desirable incentive for client retention; very small monetary incentive given annually

Advice to Management

Hire Account Management with pharmacy background
Overhaul retention compensation and incentives structure
Remove AAM role and empower all to be AM's with smaller territories

    I worked at PharMerica full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a nation-wide presence

    Cons

    Poor management at the local and regional levels. Corporate culture continues to move away from patient/employee care in favor of policies to increase profits. This business attitude is making it hard for the company to compete with mid-western competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your employees. Realize how valuable they really are, and give them the recognition and appreciation that they deserve. The same can be said for your customers. You cannot be successful without them.

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

    Pros

    I could set my own schedule as long as I visited my customers routinely.

    Cons

    They are losing business which means employees are losing their jobs. Manager tells you to do something then changes his/her mind within days. They attempted to go me (and others) to quit and when that didn't work, they laid us off. The severance package was terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Have the same expectations for all employees. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Respond to phone calls and emails.
