    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always work to be done, so there is never a dull moment. Some folks work remote, which helps with life/work balance. Most of the employees are great people with an incredible amount of drive and skill. The Mountain View office is great.

    Cons

    Where to begin? After 10+ years so much has changed with this company (as you'd expect). It used to be a company that valued employees and growth. Today, there are simply too many chiefs. And many of those leaders are arrogant, entitled, and self-absorbed (especially the Field leadership). Corporate leadership seems to be snuffed when they rock the boat too much. Gone are the days of pointing out ways to improve the company.
    Passed my 2, 5, and 10 year anniversaries with the company with no acknowledgment from anyone in the organization (except those I actually told). That sort of lack of appreciation is unacceptable. HR leadership is crass and very authoritarian - they are not the support system the employees truly need.
    The benefits are okay, but the competition is really beating them out. There are others in the tech space offering 6% and 8% 401k matches. And no, not everyone wants to put their hard earned money into a stock. Yes, it used to be profitable. But what are you going to do now to make up for the stagnation? They will tell you they offer a low 401k match because of the ESPP stock plan, but not everyone is as trustworthy of your finance management as you. Plus the stock buy right now is a loss if you sell short term.
    The acquisition of Aesynt has been a disaster. The Aesynt team is belligerent, highly political, and overrated. Their resumes speak much higher of their talent than their actual work efforts. And with no applied leadership to get the Aeysnt employees to play nice, they are tearing the Omnicell culture apart.
    Salaries are okay, but competition typically pays more. Omnicell recently paid their Field employees a few thousand more because they were getting so much flack for underpaying their staff, and also because the hiring managers couldn't fill the positions with such low salaries. The leadership has a budget to hire, but will almost always tell the hiring managers to hire at the lowest level of the salary range to save a few thousand dollars, regardless of the talent of the new hire. And the funny part, all of us were dealt the same hand. It is quintessential "passing the buck", as we were underpaid, and now we are told to underpay others. The greed is rampant. The products are being released way too quickly, meaning rushed testing cycles and half-baked solutions that require more work for the Field, and headaches for our clients.
    The ship is taking on water, and employees are leaving in droves. Those who are joining lately don't seem to be staying long. Hopefully, the ship will not sink.

    Advice to Management

    Honor your employees who have committed so much of their lives to make you millionaires. Be competitive with employee benefits. Try promoting people other than sales reps. Tell your VP's to calm their ego's and to remind them to interact with their employees the way Randy Lipps has always been able to do (with grace and humility). Get the Aesynt team in line and remind them 'who bought who?'. Don't move everything to Cranberry - nobody wants to move there from California (or anywhere else), clients do not want to go there, and the lack of talent in that area makes hiring so very difficult.

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

    Pros

    Nice new indoor basketball court, (where the machine shop employees used to be).

    Cons

    Difficult to be a marketing driven company, when the entire marketing team knows absolutely nothing about the LTC market.
    The Saint Petersburg site, (which is now called Med Adherence) was previously a very successful company called MTS Medication Technologies. Omnicell purchased MTS as a way to expand sales of the dispensing cabinets into LTC facilities. They essentially purchased relationships and a customer list. That part of the plan worked brilliantly and millions of dollars of cabinets have been sold, (public information via filings).
    However product development in both automation and consumables has been removed from relevance as managers and complex process were put in place by Omnicell from the dispensing side of the business, who simply refused to listen to the ex-MTS staff who remained. There is no longer any hardware machined, assembled or tested within the Saint Petersburg facility.
    All hardware production has been moved to PA, (public information via filings) however most products were discontinued, (public information via filings).
    Key employees left when Omnicell showed the lack of caring they have for the division by having no senior management even on site in Florida.
    If no one is on site to right the ship... no one cares.
    Middle managers then started making decisions far above their pay grade, resulting in several engineering manager, product owner, project manager, and software engineers rotating through.
    Sadly business, morale and ethics have suffered.
    What remains now is a large collection of finger pointers, generating stacks of reports claiming that all is well.
    Sad to see so many climbing over each other for a glass recognition award, while a division rots.
    After all cabinets are still selling, who cares about Florida.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what you have been profitable with, dispensing cabinets. Sell the Florida division as there is no care about it. Be transparent with customers up front, stop over promising and under delivering. Take the blinders off and recognize the mess that has been made in Florida.

    Pros

    There aren't any Pros to list.

    Cons

    Toxic culture, no senior or mid-level leadership, does not support the military, brought in a guest speaker that bashed President Trump, prefers revenue over quality products or doing the right thing, promotes people because they speak well not because they perform honorably, senior leadership care about the stock price and not the employee, no accountability for mediocre work ethic, finger pointing rather than team building, and managers who have never led people. Omnicell is only buying new companies because they have lost or losing their customers.

    Advice to Management

    Start over....think about why the company was started....to help people and to make a difference.

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

    Pros

    It's a job but not much else!!!

    Cons

    Not a lot of positive things to say.
    Work-life balance, non-existent...especially in finance.
    Unclear and constantly changing objectives permeates throughout the company.
    Very much a male dominated company with limited accommodation for women in senior management roles (except HR...go figure!).
    My experience with executive management is that they really don't care much for anyone but themselves and their own pocketbooks...trickle-down to the extreme.

    Used to be a decent place to work...but culture has changed dramatically, for the bad, with all of the acquisitions.

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE TAKING A POSITION!

    Advice to Management

    Read some of the postings on Glassdoor!!!

    Pros

    Technical service engineers work well as a team. Even though they are remote employees.

    Cons

    Remote employees are out of the loop with direction of company.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is really impressive. Keep in touch with your roots.
