    I have been working at Coram full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay you consistently. Some of the staff is great

    Cons

    Chronically and grotesquely understaffed. Extremely toxic work environment. No sense of teamwork. Sales is extremely focused on exclusively the sale. They don't bother getting you the proper information needed to safely start a patient on a therapy. Upper management is extremely condescending and outright lies to make you stay understaffed. It's an ethical nightmare. I have had a salesman shout in the phone that I would...

    Advice to Management

    Properly staff and support your branches. While sales are crucial, listen to your medical professionals on staff. You know what you need to do to make it a decent work environment, but you choose not to in order to penny pinch and keep the costs to an absolute minimum at the cost of safe patient care.

    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....

    Pros

    OK pay Opportunity for OT Busy so the time flies

    Cons

    Way understaffed, Bad management, High turnover

    Advice to Management

    staff is always overworked and under-appreciated, thus the high turnover rate. the demands the company puts on an employee is too much and often times un-manageable for one person, yet they expect it to be done. only cares about metrics which can jeopardize patient safety!

  7. "Decent experience"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Clinical Support Specialist 

      I worked at Coram full-time

      Pros

      Great manager, mostly friendly staff, decent pay (slightly higher than most pharmacy tech jobs).

      Cons

      Could have used a more proper education supplies orders, had no idea what certain things meant when putting together orders. Very busy. Lots of meetings which felt redundant at times.

      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...

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

      Pros

      1hr lunch’s breaks, nice coworkers

      Cons

      No work-life balance if you have small children in daycare this isn’t the job for you. You never leave on time. Business is growing. Departments are short staffed. Under paid for the amount of work the company wants you to do. Unorganized lack of communication. Management leaves team hanging. Very stressful environment

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Coram full-time

        Pros

        Pay went to direct deposit

        Cons

        Manager who gives false and twisted evaluations of hard working staff in order to drive them out. Constant negative comments that create a very intense toxic environment throughout. The worst attitude for management I have ever known! What a mess.

        Advice to Management

        Give more than a crumb of positive feedback to hard working staff. Get rid of the blame game and actually learn how to communicate with your staff. Coram was derived from the heart. Take it back to having one and not just about how much $ the company makes. Care a little.
