    I have been working at Coram part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Set your own schedule. Autonomy in job. Stock options. Now owned by CVS which should be a "pro"

    Cons

    Corporate mentality, financial gain is their only concern. Employees are not made to feel valued. All since being bought out by CVS

    Advice to Management

    Look at the nurses productivity for your company and how much their patients value them and model that when determining our value. If we don't make mistakes and patients are cared for, that should be of significant importance to you. It is not whatsoever! No raises, ever. We are now the lowest paid infusion company in Jacksonville and thus our quality of nurses is decreasing. Patients and prescribers can sense that....

    I worked at Coram full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful patients & Interesting cases. Many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely Poor NURSING Management. Initial orientation Incredibly inadequate. Most employees are Caring Team members however the certifiable Craziness calling the shots drives the Best employees away. So many RN’s frustrated with lack of organisation on the Inside & blatant favouritism while sacrificing true quality patient care out in the field many left shaking their heads in disbelief. In the end I too left....

    I worked at Coram full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Develop long lasting relationships with patients and their families

    Cons

    Management, high turnover rate, on call requirements, work/life balance (you will basically work 2 week's straight when you are assigned on call for a weekend, it's just added on top of your existing weekly patient load), poor communication between departments, long hours (often you will work a full day then be on call all evening/night, many times did 14-16 hours -any after hour appts, like late discharges from hospital...

    Pros

    None. Awful environment of blame anger and bullying

    Cons

    The company keeps bonuses after you have earned them changing the insurance payers they are willing to reimburse for. They deny educational assistance even tho preapprovals have been completed prior to completing class. After class is over good luck they set up road blocks to get the reimbursement. Management is awful. A culture of blame and no matter how hard you work, it's never good enough. Honestly worst place I...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. It is arrogant to think you know anything about a hospital from 2 states away and meet me for 4 hours a month and can come up with solutions to problems you are unaware of. Management has no experience currently with managing and bullying is not a motivator to increase productivity.

    I worked at Coram full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Loved my patients and learning New therapies

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate the work the nurses do, want you to work a schedule that can be any time from early am to late evening. And oncall 6 days a month on top of it. Your work schedule controls your life. Micromanaged and yet poorly run in nursing department. Office staff gets perks like free lunches while the nurses are putting on 500+ miles every week taking care of patients with no perks or appreciation....

    I worked at Coram for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Having my own patients and developing a relationship with them

    Cons

    Management has no understanding of what the field nurses actually do, they do not care about the quality of care the patients deserve, only care about their "productivity" numbers. Management has no organizational skills whatsoever, and has a profound distrust of nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Quality of nursing care can not be rated by numbers or "productivity".

    I have been working at Coram

    Pros

    There are no pros to this job

    Cons

    Managers and VP base your work performance on rather or nit you are writing emails all day long to the region wbout how great you are; kind of like when your in a departnent store at xmas and they ring a b3ll qbout a sake or donation. They hire inexperienced people and staff is lije a revolvibg door. Salary is very low, even for positiobs that require an RN license

    Advice to Management

    Go out and work with your reports....stop basing work oerfornance on whether or not you are BFFs with other co workers that you never see or really work with. Recognize all the diffucultues of each soecific terrirory and get out there and work with your employees as a team and stop saying "you build , they shall come"

    I have been working at Coram full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working autonomously, easy paperwork, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Nurse manager filters every decision through her emotions, moderately skilled and micromanages all the nurses; preferential treatment for some but none for others. Many other nurses have expressed that the rn manager does not support them, only criticisms and blames. Unfortunately the branch manager also has moods that run very dark and she can be very nasty. This is not a nurturing environment I don't think...

    Advice to Management

    Who knows? I don't think its fixable. Clearly HR is aware of their managerial issues but have chosen to look the other way as droves of nurses leave the company and most others wish they had another job to go to. I am very disappointed that HR came in, evaluated the office complaints and did Absolutely nothing...oh, except blame some of the nurses.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse

    I worked at Coram full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Multiple educational opportunities are available for specialty certifications, CE's and general advancement of knowledge base. Many experienced professionals available as resources.

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation for individuals that work the hardest, from field staff to managers. Pay increases are few and limited; may work here for several years without any appreciable increase in pay. Lack of coordination with computer systems. Too much turnover in staff.

    Advice to Management

    Employees have bills too; when the company is profitable, reward employees based on their performance and level of experience. Verbal praise is no substitute for economic reward.
