    Pros

    Omnicare offers great benefits, its long-term care so more of a clinical setting than working at a retail pharmacy , and you stay busy thought the day

    Cons

    The pay rate should be higher for new employees who are licensed and certified , some of the shifts suck if the location is 24 hours, and some of the employees who work there aren't competent .

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing. Developed alot of close relationships. Found that working in the iv department was very self rewarding. They provide free ce credits.

    Cons

    The work schedule is awful. Spent four years working for the company to hear countless promises from management that were never fulfilled. Promised raises I never received. Work 50 to 60 hours 5 days a week with no set quit time. Lost years with my family, no work family balance. Management is under trained, unprofessional, and very discriminating to women, minorities, and people of different religious beliefs.

    Advice to Management

    CVS needs to reshape the management from bottom up. Talk to the employee on a floor working level to see what is really going on in your newly bought company.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to work overtime, there is plenty of it! Benefits including health, dental, vision insurance, 401k.

    Cons

    Gossip, constant call offs, long hours, poor treatment, unappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Address issues when brought to attention. Be more realistic with how much work should be assigned to one person. The work load is increasing immensely, but the number of employees remains the same. Provide items required to do the job. Base reviews off of employee's quality of work and not personal childish opinions.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime, which helps your pay, unless you are salaried of course.

    Cons

    Management lacks communication. No HR support. No career advancement options. Very poor work/family balance. Long unpredictable hours. Management does not stand behind it's employees, unless it is for other management. Pharmacists can be blatantly rude to other staff and the management does not care, but if the pharmacist complains about staff, staff gets reprimanded. Management doesn't seem to know what it takes to retain staff and how to make for positive working conditions.
