    Top heavy and non cohesive upper management team

    I have been working at BioScrip full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some dedicated professions on the clinical field arena

    Cons

    Everything else. Strategic plan is to maintain s top heavy upper management team while sacrificing the clinical structure which compromises patient care and over stresses the branch ops team. This company does not have its finger on the pulse of patient care or interest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut 1/2 of the upper management financial load and there will be plenty of money for the shareholders.
    Reinvest in a clinical service model that actually has care in your healthcare company

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Top down mentality of decision making makes competing at the community level difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more and talk less.

    I worked at BioScrip

    Pros

    Definitely some dedicated people in the company

    Cons

    Even though there are "all-hands" calls, there is very little disclosure of the health of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and let people know how we're doing. This false sense of security is not good for morale when the hammer has to drop.

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere, mostly great co-workers.

    Cons

    Yearly raises are very small and make you question why you bust your butt to go above and beyond if you're only going to get the bare minimum of 1-2%. Think of that consultant interview from Office Space. Do just enough to not get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your hard workers and compensate them accordingly. Don't make us feel like a number when it comes to yearly raises.

    Tutorial on how to destroy a promising branch

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at BioScrip full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were great. Most colleagues at other branches were helpful and nice. They recently started holding "town hall" type meetings with employees and CEO. It was good to hear from the CEO the direction of the company (it was inferred company trying to become more attractive to buyer)

    Cons

    No work life balance and every decision corporate made about my branch was the wrong one. I cannot stress that enough. My fledgling branch was destroyed by corporate, and there's no reason that branch should be flailing. Little opportunity for advancement unless you are a suck up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. They work hard every day to ensure patients are well taken care of.

    I have been working at BioScrip full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great co-workers, at the branch operations and field clinician level

    Cons

    system antiquated, communication across the board very disconnected. Corporate culture in the gutter. Morale in the same place. Bad and unsupportive environment. Time to go it keeps getting worse and stock is at an all time low. I say cut the fat at the top and invest more in the folks at the branch level especially the clinicians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear concise direction and communication. make your employees believe you care about them and the patients that they serve by providing health insurance that doesn't rape you and provide ongoing education that will benefit the professional staff and their patient's. Worst company I have ever worked for.

    I have been working at BioScrip full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in scheduling has been good in my the 3 years. The majority of the employees are hard workers at my branch and in others.

    Cons

    Where to start? Senior management is so busy turning a buck at the expense of every single employee they have no time to deal with building cohesion between all the little pharmacies they bought to create their Home Infusion Conglomerate. We may have name recognition locally under our old name, but even it's credibility is slowing sliding downhill as referral sources have begun realizing we are no more than a 24 hour mini-mart dispensing IV drugs since Bioscrip bought us 2 years ago.
    And understaffed? My one coworker in a MD branch was expected to perform the roles of Intake, Authorization, RN staffing AND as an RN herself, see patients in the field! The same VP that told me and others at my location "staffing isn't the issue so find another reason you aren't performing" has yet to apologize for those words but the job being done by 2 in my office is now barely being handled by 4 of us, and that MD branch now has 2.5 employees for those tasks (we have different volume of patients). Also have learned the majority of is have received a 1% raise in the past 3 years though the demand for us to work has risen by 50% (benefit costs are also off the charts!)
    Best yet is the new Employee Stock Purchase Plan...hmm... Your stock has dropped from $13 to $8 the past 2 years though profits have risen, and the same co you sold your mail order specialty to now wants to buy all you acquired w/that sales money (hello, Walgreens). My guess is the ESPP is to build a small reserve possibly raising stock value as they coordinate the sale of the HIT division.
    And our medical insurance costs...$900+/mo for myself and 1 child to have a $5k OOP but the plan denies everything first forcing all providers to appeal, even prescription benefits.Obamacare has better plans.
    The list is endless as to why one should avoid this company like the plague. I'd give no stars but then I couldn't submit my review.
