      Good depending on the team you're on

      Pros

      I've been very fortunate to be placed on teams where most members were great to work with. For the web app side, you're expected to complete all your work whether that be working overtime or finishing early based on the features agreed upon during sprint planning. I'm pretty productive so I typically complete my work early and if there's nothing else to work on I'm able to leave early. The teams and web app side managers are very flexible, understanding and generally protect their employees from being taken advantage of or forced to work overtime due to poor planning from other teams.

      Cons

      In other areas of IT, managers expect a lot out of their employees and generally don't protect them. Business can ask a lot out of IT sometimes (especially last minute) but if you're luckily to have a good BA/PM they will help manage your time appropriately. One major con of Pharmerica (a reason I'm leaving) is there's very little internal growth, the technology is archaic, and most are underpaid and have mediocre benefits. Another problem I've seen is that it's very difficult to become an FTE if you come in as a contractor.

    3. 3.0
      Former Employee, less than 1 year

      It’s a good company but hires poor help all the way around

      Pros

      It’s a fast pace kinda warehouse pharmacy that has different opportunity for you too learn and work in different areas like order entry, filler, Bagger, IV, front office Ins biller, lead tech, mgr or supervisor or educator.

      Cons

      Having to work with people who are not punctual, don’t do there share of work and can’t meet the deadline and be on time. Mgr needs to be mgr and not try too be everyone’s friends because people take advantage. And mgr need to follow protocols and not tell you to do things that are against rules and regulations and hang you out to dry when you get caught . Meet standards all the time not just when they want and be professional while at work

      Pros

      Great boss at actual location but higher up management couldn’t care less about employees.

      Cons

      Low pay for the level of knowledge required in some areas, pay increases are few and far between, constantly understaffed which makes work- life balance seem very one sided. Having to work late into the day. And there’s not a lot of room for career advancement.

      Very flexible and encouraging

      Pros

      Supervisors are very understanding of life issues that may require time off or schedule changes, and they are very supportive of efforts to climb higher in the company. They offer tuition reimbursement up to $2000 per year after one year of employment. You have the ability to work independently without micromanagement.

      Cons

      My department was brand new when I came on, so there was almost no training.
