    Approves of CEO

    I worked at PharMerica full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Getting to see the country was amazing and the fact that you got a rental car and a company credit card every week to use was ridiculousy convenient. Also, I loved the people I workes with and miss each and every one of them every day!

    Cons

    Pay, Pay, and Pay......what more can I say? I would go back tomorrow if they increased the pay structure. I, as well as many of my former colleagues, received (and accepted) job offers with other LTC pharmacies for 30 grand more a year with no questions asked. In saying that, I can honestly say that, if PMC offered N increase in pay tomorrow, we would easily come crawling back.

    Advice to Management

    In today’s economy, we need more! If other, smaller LTC pharmacies can offer more, why can’t a multi-billion dollar, top 5 Pharmacy do the same? I can guarantee that you would have many , extremely valuable, once lost employees coming back !

      I worked at PharMerica part-time

      Pros

      -Experience in long term care

      Cons

      -System needs to be updated. -There is a major lack of leadership, all members of management transferred over from a previous company (that failed) and that culture was brought over to PharMerica. -Training is subpar with no training manual/SOP for employees to follow/refer to, so training consists of "I'm not sure if this is the correct way, but this is how I do it". -No respect for staff, especially techs -Favoritism...

      Advice to Management

      -Management is only as good as your weakest employee. -Respect your staff, techs and RPhs alike -Encourage your team to take pride in the work that is sent out to the facilities, shortcuts are only good if done properly

          I worked at PharMerica full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          I made some friends there

          Cons

          I wound up doing the work of 3 pharmacists in addition to my own. One was so ill he could not hold a pen, one spoke incoherent English, the other was just lazy and a bully. The coward of a director lost over half of our accounts and had to lay off 8 employees. He hides in his office during the day, until he disappears in the afternoon. He allowed attacks on me, denied vacation requests and observed as I was worked to...
