    Pros

    Some good people on ground floor ops. Not much more to say other than , get educated, wake up and do the right thing. Try that on fir size and when you do keep some people on board that actually have expertise on the patient care level.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management team extremely disjointed and redirecting objectives and focus for branches. Constant multiple process changes leave all initiatives halfway done and keep the entire progress of the company on a treadmill going no where. Constant state of flux and fear is extremely demotivating and back stabbing is rampant. Seems each individual is out for themselves and particularly in management from branch level upwards . There is no team at Bioscrip.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times and keep some continuity. Too much constant change keeps company from progressing and becoming a solid operation. Do a one time sweep of actual dead wood and move forward keeping some experienced professionals at the help. Learn from your mistakes and above all reconsider what happens on the Pt level. This takes ongoing education .

    Pros

    Great Autonomy! Billion dollar company. Great concepts but not implemented appropriately

    Cons

    No clearly defined policy and procedures. No formal sales training - PowerPoint Karaoke is NOT AN EFFECTIVE SALES TRAINING TECHNIQUE. No 1:1 sales team training program at the branch - ride alongs for 1 week is NOT AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO TRAIN. No feasible procedure for weekend referrals - this needs to be tweaked to make it easy for the referral source to fax it and trust that we will deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring upper management from the competition especially since BioScrip employees can not go and work for the competition. Senior management should sign a non-compete as well. Listen to the branch employees complaints regarding branch Managers, district sales managers, and RSDs and listen to the branch's recommendations on how to improve numbers. Promote from within to strengthen the company morale before listing the position to the public. Send out a "how are we doing" survey to the entire company with open ended questions and have the employee send back "anonymously" - if an employee has something to say they will gladly fill it out and pay for postage.

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

    Pros

    It's a job.. That's about all I can say. I cannot think of any which is why I left my position after 12 years.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, terrible management, no communication, too much favoritism. You will work with no lunch and no one will tell you to take one. Managers have tunnel vision and do not manage the work flow or require employees to help one another.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to start managing the managers that you have in place at individual branches and make them accountable for what's going on. Read the reviews, management is a common problem nation wide.

    Pros

    Great people who truly cared about their patients. Most of the regional vice presidents really understand the company.

    Cons

    Senior management sugar coated everything. Especially the CEO. He would go on and on about how good things were and then another person is laid off. Felt like he couldn't be honest with employees. They promised training. Where is it? They didn't hold anybody accountable, especially the sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in the field. Understand how difficult the front end reps jobs are and what the nurses have to go thru. Train the managers how to manage. More communication and tell the truth. Hold people accountable.
