    I worked at Omnicare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were all very cool. Office setting with only outside customer interaction through the phone.

    Cons

    Worked there 4 years before this review, so it might be better now. But management left a lot to be desired. Leadership was influx all the time. Technician Manager turnover was about every 6 months. Mainly told as a group how we were failing and never told when we were doing things well. Had to look to coworkers for positive reinforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some recognition for good workers and create a more positive work environment.

    Tension amongst staff, always short staffed (due to cons), no real new employee training literally have to learn on your own, all employees are not treated equal.

    Re-train half the staff and start treating all employees equal.

    Pros

    Hours work for my personal needs, not terribly hard if you have prior experience

    Cons

    HUGE divide between pharmacists and technicians, technicians aren't appreciated for what they do, they hire anyone who applies so people who are doing PAs for meds they don't even know they are used for, what is expected of the technician depends on the pharmacist reviewing, processes change constantly, blatant favoritism of techs from management/supervisors

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with your expectations and appreciate what the techs do for you.
