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

    Pros

    Years of good culture. Work/life balance is great. Company has strong growth potential due to few competitors. Stock has gone up a lot in past 8+ years. Benefits are wonderful as well.

    Cons

    Omnicell has a great culture, but it was negatively impacted by the Aesynt acquisition. The team in Cranberry is not adapting well to a long tradition of friendly, cooperative culture.

    Executive team should talk to mid-level management more often to get a better picture of the market and areas of improvement. VP's and GM's are protecting their package and legacy, more than seeing true room for improvement to make the company greater. Big personalities in the executive team are prohibiting organic growth.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, a company grows, but selecting the right people to bring on board is all the difference. Don't cut or move employees who have made you wealthy over the past decade. And salaries have always been low, compared to others in the industry.

    Pros

    Great team and staff collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Poor transparency from the Executive team to the rest of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Meet with your teams more frequently, and provide information that is of value and not just the "company" line.

    Pros

    Great products. Has a strong vision of where they are going and can be customer focused.

    Cons

    Management needs to realize that people come before profits. Tough to grow in this company or expand your opportunities within.

    Advice to Management

    People before profits. Invest more in your people and your turnover will reduce.

    Pros

    Good Technology and well positioned in the market to continue growth. Good diversity of products to meet needs of the healthcare marketplace

    Cons

    Founder is also the CEO, great technology guy. Hired a lot of Presidents in the past, but had hard time letting go and empowering the ones he hired.

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

    Pros

    Market share; limited competitors in space; landscape is ripe for expansion and domination

    Cons

    Poor culture. Limited advancement options. New talent will have challenges overcoming dogma from "established" leadership. Better options in Mountain View to focus your attention.

    Advice to Management

    Executive team is unprepared to manage a multi-pronged, coordinated approach to growing market share. Still too dependent and focused on the core cabinet product. Executives are not self-aware and willing to acknowledge own short-comings. Acquired a lot of companies recently with great talent that has not been used effectively leading to poor integration and disappointing outcomes. Leveraging back log at this time to "smooth over" the challenges really occurring...

    Pros

    The company is growing fast

    Cons

    To many acquisitions and no one knows who to go to for anything. To many changes to screw over employees to save a penny. People not being held accountable for doing a good job and taking care of the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, fix the processes we have. Take care of your employees, stop taking things from us and making the job harder for less.

    Pros

    Good people that want to do a good job

    Stock has done OK

    Cons

    Poor management across the board but particularly in Finance and IT. All arrogance and little leadership.

    Compensation/equity plans for Executives and VP's clearly a priority, at the expense of middle management and below.

    Absolutely no infrastructure to support the multitude of acquisitions that have been consummated in the last 4 years. Still doing many things the same way they were back in 2010 when $250M company and utilization of SAP system stinks.

    Complete lack of understanding/concern from executive management about what it takes to handle the ever-changing and seemingly directionless priorities

    Executive management is clearly an "old boys" network...women not allowed (look at "Management Team" on the company website !!!)

    Culture??? What culture?

    Advice to Management

    Would give it, but will fall on deaf ears.

    I worked at Omnicell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are a recent graduate and looking to join this company than DONT. This is for software dev position at Raleigh NC office (Previously known as Ateb).

    You will be doing the same thing 100 times and there is nothing new to learn.

    The manager does not know how to manage the team. Manager is supposed to lead the team but here it is the salespeople who make the decisions.

    Cons

    If you are going for an interview you will most likely be part of OBC/IVR team and that's the worst team in the whole company.

    If you are new grad - This experience won't get you a better job
    Experienced - Run away as the politics and stress are not worth.

    Pay is low and there is no yearly review process and even if there is the pay increase you get is a joke. If you are a new grad they will offer lower pay. Most companies offer $70k so ask for that or else don't join for 20k less they will offer you.

    People are helpful and nice, pays well, laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Communication between everyone is lacking, IT is really bad, morale is a little down

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you include the people doing the work in the meetings about the project. Wipe out the local IT and start over.

    Pros

    The staff work hard and support each other as much as possible. Stock has done well over time. Most people just want to do a good job.

    Cons

    Poor upper and middle management. Constantly shifting priorities make it hard to achieve and maintain success. They seem to have very little loyalty to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what made you successful and go back to the basics.
