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

    Pros

    None at all, I'm afraid. Perhaps a decent place to work if you're an individual who lacks education and experience.

    Cons

    Lack of competent management/supervisors. Most of the technicians were terribly under-qualified to be handling sensitive medical data and complicated dosing information. For example, most technicians couldn't even pronounce the names of basic medications nor explain their clinical applications.
    They enjoy micromanaging all hourly employees; for example, keeping track of how long it takes you to use the restroom, get a cup of water, etc. (the legality of which remains dubious under OSHA law). Overall a soul crushing environment not befitting an individual of even moderate education.

    Advice to Management

    The middle managers needs serious reform in order to function efficiently. After a middle management change, supervisor change, and new-hire trainer change, the CIC was still as inefficient as it was before; perhaps even more so. The new middle manager knew practically nothing about his department's process (even after 2-3 months of work) and tried to implement untenable, incompetent 'solutions' to the problems that plagued us. On several occasions I caught him sleeping during meetings (which were a joke to begin with). The new supervisor understood her limited job function well, but was terribly combative and sensitive when her 'authority' was questioned. If the company want to improve its >1,000 backlogged claim rejections, it should look into hiring competent (& educated) management/supervisors.
