Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Fenton, MO – August 8, 2018
Very busy !! Worked in the Chemo room, Did many TPNs, Never a dull moment, Clock in and get to work pulling orders for the day. Organizing who was going to do what. Once that was esstablished we would get to work cleaning, and making things happen for the patients. Call to insure the patients would be home for the delivery. Make sure all the pumps where tested and cleaned for any new patients. Would add them all into the system.
Not a pleasant work environment. Very demanding with no flexibility. Has no regard for workplace satisfaction. Does not take care of their employees. Does not put the patient first. Very sad and negative place to work.
I enjoyed working for Clinical Specialties/Option Care. Loved the laid back atmosphere just as long as you did your job & met your quota. Loved my co-workers & upper management. Very sad when my whole department was illuminated in Brecksville and moved to Chicago. Found my perfect job and then it was gone.
Hours, pay, location, close to home, weekends off. Multi-tasking.

Agreed that hours are not consistent Favoritism and not enough positive reinforcements from management Pharmacy is not supportive of nurses in the field. Too many inconsistent rules and ever changing management complaints. Nurses are not respected Hard workers are abused. Slackers get away with bad work ethics On call not fair for one nurse to be expected to work over 10 hours and forced to go in dangerous neighborhoods.
I liked the work I did at optioncare and I do miss it as well as some of my co-workers. Although there is a lot of DRAMA in the facility. The company was great when I first started years ago and then we had some transition of ownership and management and things went downhill over time.
If you do not know exactly what you are doing chances are you will be pushed out of the position. There is a lot of drama and childish behavior. Never fully staffed on Nurses so it is hard to get out to visits. Training is non- existent. Very few genuine people that work here.
Referral Coordinator (Current Employee) – Machesney Park, IL – July 15, 2018
I like the company but I hate my job. I hate having to collect payment from patients before they receive services. I was never told I would have to do this when I got hired. We have to do the job of two people and it is VERY STRESSFUL!
A case of poor management driving away it’s best employees
Clinical Pharmacist, Pharmacist I (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – July 8, 2018
If you want to sell your soul to the devil then this is the place for you. Management would rather brush problems under a rug than deal with them. I was honestly scared for my license when I worked for this company.
It was a job
Long hours, no work/life balance, poorly staffed, lack of appropriate training
This business has completely changed since I worked for them so a review isn't really appropriate. They were a locally owned business when I worked for them and now they are a chain owned by someone else.
RN (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – June 26, 2018
Exciting corporate vision. Corporate has invested heavily in tech for nurses and exciting new changes in nurse processes underway. I am constantly learning new things. People are generally very supportive and on-board with new corporate initiatives to standardize. A very caring group of people to work with.

Controller (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – June 21, 2018
Option Care in Columbia, MO has a good group of people working there & they a great co-workers. Option Care as a corporate has been focusing a lot on centralization of services to the point that growth at the local level can be harder to find. Non-clinical staff are extremely challenged in this area.
Intake Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 18, 2018
Optioncare is a great company to work for. But about 2 years ago a investment company purchased Optioncare. They had no medical experience. I feel they have gotten so concerned with paperwork, that the patient care is being put in 2nd place.
