    Pros

    Pay and thats about it

    Cons

    no interest in advancing employees careers at all. every manager has own agenda ahead of employee morale, employees are not respected on any level

    Advice to Management

    care more about who you hire and treat those at lower levels with respect. make morale a priority

    Pros

    Great new building, equipment, conf rooms, WiFi

    Cons

    Very hard to thrive in an environment where the distance between those empowered and those who are powerless gets larger every day. Respect is not earned easily. Too many reorganizations of middle management and too few leaders at the top. Compared to any other silicon valley software company this one truly lacks vision.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed from HP and walk among the people, listen to ideas, shift the sands less often. Stick to a vision to grow people Internally who are in different ranks than top tier.

    Pros

    Lots of truly dedicated co workers that are great at what they do and leading industry products you can be proud to be associated with.

    Cons

    So many Con's don't know where to begin. Highly Political, Lies Lies and more Lies. Management is deceiving, backstabbing, dysfunctional. Poor Pay, below area standards. Workload not reasonable for work life balance. New acquisition has the company upside down even more so than before. If you have any other job offer take it over this place, you won't last long. Horrible!! Most of the truly talented people have left or are heading out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Show some consideration for your employees and let them know you value their work, stop acting like you are doing everyone a favor by having a job at your company. Hire some consultants to come in and offer a total RE DO..

    I have been working at Omnicell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, gym and pay is competitive.

    Cons

    No work life balance and long hours. Unqualified management that you would never see in other companies be in charge of entire departments. Train these individuals to treat others with respect. They say they respect their employees but managements action show otherwise. Best to keep quiet if you want to stay employed at Omnicell .

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire qualified individuals to supervise and manage others.

    Follow industry pay standards and give what everyone else pays. Stop making promises that you can't keep.

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

    Pros

    Omnicell is updating much of the ancient MTS product line. The products are interesting to work on (robots and automation are cool). Great skills opertunities if you work on the right project. Recent Scrum process seems good. Really good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of very obsolete software. Recent marketing chaos is really damaging. Everything is rushed and high priority putting everything at risk. Some managers treat thier people badly. Awful raises.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a long term plan for success. Try to create a sustainable work environment.

    Pros

    The products are great. Many of the people are fantastic.

    Cons

    Most mid-level managers have no management training or experience. They're promoted because they were good technically, which does not translate to good people management. Management styles are all over the place. Back-room discussions and blame are rampant. Morale is low and turnover is high. The fun, exciting Omnicell culture that was there when I started is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers and learn what they are doing. Work harder to retain your good people. Don't forsake your current products and employees in favor of endless acquisitions.

    Pros

    Great products and my boss is a great guy. They just bought a competitor which adds new products to their portfolio.

    Cons

    Horrific processes and sales are not respected. It takes days to many approvals just to do a simple task that should only be a mouse click. Commission rates are weak. They are too conservative and cheap!

    Advice to Management

    You need a true sales professional as a VP. Your culture is broken.
