    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Teams and departments are generally supportive of each other. Lots of good people who work hard.

    Job satisfaction may be higher if you work in Engineering or Sales.

    This used to be an outstanding company. Hard to tell if that will happen again.

    Cons

    Always heading in too many directions. Not enough workers to get the job done.

    Company has grown and decisions are now made at the top. Unfortunately, there is a consistent lack of insight by senior management. Rarely do they seek insight from the people doing the work.

    Be cautious about coming here. I would look at other companies who promote and maintain a diverse culture.

    Also, be wary of offers to work on the west coast (unless you're an engineer) since the company is more invested in East Coast operations.

    Advice to Management

    Involve your people. Free up the reins on middle management in order to allow creativity and good ideas to flourish.

    Pros

    It was a very relaxing atmosphere to work in . Even though when equipment went down it was very critical to get them back up and running as soon as possible.

    Cons

    Communications between management and employees was not enough.

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

    Pros

    Good location. Heart of Mt.View. Mass Transit. Peets Coffee. A modern building with outdoor patio. Flexible schedules. The opportunity to sharpen chess skills as each day brings new challenges. [obviously you would need to be a very good chess player].

    Cons

    To many chiefs, not enough helpers supported by strategy that changes on a regular basis. Once honeymoon is over you will experience unease which leads to feelings that you will never be safe. It is a dread and despair many people share. Heavy meeting and conf call driven culture where a maze of thoughts can be rendered vague by the lack of words to express them. You will exit these meetings not understanding how you spent your time or what you actually tried to accomplish. And it is wheel that never ends. You must walk the thin blue line to fit in. Creativity is not rewarded and those with organic thoughts are carefully, selectively weeded out as if they were never there. Perfect literary prose fits this situation: "You're not wanted. Understand? We are going to have fun on this island. Understand? We are going to have fun on this island! So don't try it on, my poor misguided boy, or else--- There was blackness within, a blackness that spread.” and coupled with: “People don't help much.....people were never quite what you thought they were" and then at last the blame comes back to YOU as the reason why ....the ship is not sailing and that is absolutely not a good thing as clawing you way back out of the rat hole is exhausting mentally and physically.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp and reorganization of leadership is long overdue especially in select departments. Recommend consolidation of offices, realignment of corporate resources to better optimize people, personal, products as multiple agendas shield productivity. Coaching not working when employees at the mid and lower parts of the ship are regarded with antagonism. Need to seriously address the "inner intensity of avoidance and secrecy” as it relates to how employees, especially women, are treated.
