    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Skilled and intelligent colleagues, great customers, strong product portfolio and market position (especially after recent acquisition).

    Cons

    Like any large publicly traded organization there is resistance to change. Industry regulations and open market often means a lot of bureaucracy on the business end. Sales opportunities are hit or miss depending on your region and a large majority of business is tied in large deals with long sales cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be more willing to listen to change. We are making the right decisions based on bad data. Upgrade our data systems and build a culture to support it so that we can make better informed decisions.

    Pros

    People who care about their work; niche products that are leaders in their specialties.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to get promoted unless you are politically oriented; regular (but not always successful) reorganizations of marketing structure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to the issues facing those doing the work in the organization - those in the field and in middle management.

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rapidly growing customer base. Majority of employees are very qualified, smart, and go beyond the call for their customers.

    Cons

    Difficult for upper Management to keep up with the pace with growth, thus making it difficult for other employees. Hard to find time to take off, due to backup issues and they always ask for more. Sometimes very overwhelming when you add in hours of travel to customer accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people who are in front of the customer representing the company many times a day. When the front line asks for something, they need it and need it now. I recommend quick response, and follow-up for the sake of the company and customer. Upper management seem like cheerleaders instead of managers and only care about making the sale.

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

    Pros

    The people are great to work with- most have open door policy and are easy to approach. Headquarter is in a great location for commuters in the bay area, right in front of light rail station. Also located close to major highways, easy to get to.

    Cons

    Turn over appears to be frequent for some departments and salary increases are marginal at best. The company is constantly changing direction which takes time for some departments to keep caught up. But the constant change in direction is probably to respond to changing market environment.
