    Pros

    Tight family culture. People genuinely care about the products and hospitals they serve. People care about providing a better outcome for patients. Fast past growth company with a lot of opportunity to bring your expertise and make a difference.

    Cons

    Company changes a lot due to growth. Some people do not do well with a company that has a lot of change. Some people will not like the hard work, travel, and long hours. Company is going from small to large company that brings with it growing pains.

    I worked at Omnicell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Caring persons, competitive benefits, and some incentives

    Cons

    I started employment in my work function in a family-like atmosphere where all persons would help with an issue of their understanding and would willing to bring you to the same understanding (proved that time allowed). I was simply rated on my ability to provide quality help.
    I ended my time at Omnicell being a subdivided individual that was not kept well informed. My productivity suffered in this cold and calculated, negative focused atmosphere. The stress of having nobody to back me up was great. The pressure to increase performance while being provided little increased knowledge and guidance was unrealistic. Those who were my foundation moved to other areas or found employment elsewhere often resulting in replacement personnel that had less knowledge than I already possessed. The persons that replaced those of experience, on next level up of the company's hierarchy, often focused on scholastic type resolves not experience narrowed to this company's function.
    The new rescheme needed to focus on an individual’s ability to improve the future of the company by getting to know them rather than rely on unproven calculations from numbers that seemed to have no solid basis from cold world described above. I hope it has changed for the friendly, founding people I left behind. The subdivisions within the company were divided in function and only focused on that function - not so bad if there is constant coordination across those divisions. I did not see much of that in my area.
    Omnicell as a whole is dispersed and impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest to the personnel that you serve if it does not cause a riot

    Innovative products and great corporate office location in Silicon Valley. Great benefits.

    Lower than average salary. Management doesn't change and makes excuses for not promoting folks that have put in the work and time.

    Listen to your customer-facing employees and react. Make Omnicell a more fun and rewarding place to work. Great products but concentrate on valuing your employees.

    I worked at Omnicell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Casual work attire. Convenient parking. On-site lunch cafe and gym.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition of competitor is resulting in chaos. Trying to merge two different corporate cultures, procedures and software is a nightmare. Upper mgmt insists on using less robust software for future products "because we bought them." The lower mgmt level is mostly comprised of incompetents with no people skills and no work ethic - totally removed from the day ton day operation of the dept they "manage." Watch your back or you will get stabbed. The "Old Boy Network" is in full bloom at Omnicell.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed as they will not take it. Extremely poor employee surveys several consecutive years brought no results. Last survey review meeting started with Dept. Mgr. stating "I hate these things, waste of time." That guy is now a Director.

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

    Pros

    Centrally located Silicon Valley company. Convenient parking and access to mass transit. Creative hardware and software engineers committed to producing quality products.

    Cons

    Most of one's time is spent navigating the egos of Marketing leadership. Business strategy, when developed, is forced down with no input from the teams doing the work. Constant one-off projects, that produce little value, take away from long term strategy. Narcissistic leadership prevents team members from presenting or having any exposure to executive level leaders. Company is aware of team's dissatisfaction but makes no changes. Cozy sense of security amongst men in leadership with blatant absence of females in leadership. Ageism is something regularly exhibited. A liability and financial disaster waiting to happen. False sense that the executive team cares about the customer. It's all about the 'deal' then business pressures to realize revenue compromise thorough implementations. Lack of employee empowerment and transparency creates a culture of anxiety. Who will be the next person to fall out of favor?--be aware!

    Advice to Management

    There are great leaders in the industry--why are you keeping the poison around?

    I worked at Omnicell full-time

    Pros

    Active hospital segment customers, good regional sales representatives, parking, easy walk to lunch, transportation

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of gender and minority representation, favoritism, inexperienced leadership in marketing and sales. Regular disregard for "facts" supporting contrary direction to marketing, product or sales strategy leaders. Communication issues across all departments, non-existent in some cases due to executive level competing egos. Challenged corporate culture and demeaning atmosphere. A definite career busting move to work in certain environments. HR aware of issues, coaches for the incompetent but in place to serve the entity. Steer clear.

    Advice to Management

    You are aware of the corrections needed. Get to it to stem the bleed.
