    I worked at Omnicare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well known company, in the pharmacy service provider world, now under the CVS umbrella. Multiple career opportunities with an extensive line of services.

    Cons

    There were no clear reporting structures. EVERYONE with a title assumed they were in charge and contradicting one another daily. You would receive different “orders” from several different people, on the same call, none of which supported the other.

    Advice to Management

    Know what you’re talking about before you actually speak

    I worked at Omnicare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you called in, you got 3 days and only 1 point. Anything past three days resulted in more points.

    Cons

    Everything! When coworkers call in using 3 for 1 special, you have to handle your territory as well as theirs. Had set hours you had to work. No moral, just wanted cases closed to paid therapy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of your good employees that work hard and take pride in their jobs

    I worked at Omnicare full-time

    Pros

    The job itself is enjoyable
    Pay isn't terrible

    Cons

    The favorite techs act like they're in charge of everyone. It is like a mean girls club in Jr high. The shocking part is that management is part of the club! Don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or go elsewhere.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, good hours, good learning environment.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth and pay could have been better .

    Advice to Management

    Train all new hires better instead of rushing them on to the floor. More team work and communication between the departments is also necessary.

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

    Pros

    There is none, I could say they would have had a chance when it was omnicare, but no pros NONE

    Cons

    Unorganized, management sucks, slave work-overtime constently, don't recognize nor acknowledge the employees, no communication, don't pay what your worth nor for all the work you put in, system constantly goes down, ever since cvs took over went to hell. And I don't feel sorry for me or my employees (former) I feel bad for are patients not getting what they need and deserve due to the extreme shortage of employees that are working. Due to cvs trying to run the company like it's a retail store. They should be shut down , don't have enough people to run it! Lesson learned. 3 year lesson.

    Advice to Management

    Get your stuff together!!!!!!! And how bout you stay overtime, instead of over working your good employees that you have left.

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

    Pros

    I work in Field Sales, so I have flexible hours and the ability to create my own schedule. The sales team is very cohesive and cares about everyone's struggles, even from across the country. Sales management is very invested in keeping talent within the company, and takes the time to listen to concerns in the market. They make themselves available for personal development and take the time to listen to real problems. Company also pays well to account for cost of living.

    Cons

    Organization needs improvement. It's a large company, but it takes forever for innovative ideas to make it to the actual boots on the ground. Cross collaboration is downright difficult as there are so many hoops to jump through beyond just having schedules aligned. The company also has a terrible reputation in a lot of markets, which makes selling understandably difficult. Communication with other team members is mostly limited to conference calls, which is isolating. There isn't much of a marketing department, so the sales cycle is very old school and inefficient at times.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to ideas coming from directly from people in the field. Invest in sales operations and support to make selling the company easier. Invest in account managers and operations to create a better reputation for the company.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, constantly busy, various positions.

    Cons

    Some of the management isn't quite qualified for the position they hold or they do not have the answers to questions that they should, and they need to speak with the employees in a different manner.
