    I have been working at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great employee engagement and culture! Great team work environment. Hours are great. Management within the company seems to be realistic with goals.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better, deductibles are high.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I like my actual job. Benefits are reasonable.

    Cons

    A lot of the day is spent duplicating work because internal systems don't work with one another. Fulfillment/operating system is archaic, something shocking at a company owned by a Fortune 8 parent company. Training program is non existent. Learning curve due to lack of training program is quite long and frustrating.

    Pros

    If you are performing you have freedom. You truly get to manage your own market you are responsible for.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about employees. You are mainly considered just a corporate number by higher ups. Immediate management is great and helpful but past that is not.

    I worked at Omnicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pays a little bit more than similar jobs but the trade off isn’t worth it.

    Cons

    Incompetent management that doesn’t care. Unethical behavior is tolerated. Favoritism is encouraged. Harassment of others is okay. It’s every bad part of CVS but in a nice Omnicare package.
