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

    Pros

    little supervision in my role

    Cons

    Benefits are extremely unaffordable, Management is rude, nasty, and ineffective and will tell you they don't know when asking for advice, extremely high turnover rate, patients will receive wrong/missing shipments of m edications or supplies, company is getting ran in the ground due to having the wrong people in high positions, it's not what you know here, it's who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should speak to the employees, instead of Management who will only lie to cover themselves by saying everything is fine, but in reality people don't last six months before they find another job! Corporate should run this location until the right people are hired, or they will be shut down because everyone is quitting

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN

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

    Pros

    The only pro to working here, is realizing there is better for you out there then this place.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non-existent. They have mandatory overtime that keeps getting extended because employees leave and they have no one else to do the work. Employee burn-out here is a serious problem at this company. The quotas are unrealistic and unhealthy. Breaks and lunches are within slotted windows of time that must be approved on a daily basis by management. Due to the volume of work and the quota expectation,...

    Advice to Management

    We are not a number, we are a human being with a life outside of work. Treat your employees better or watch them leave. Stop wasting your time on training new employees and create better management with realistic employee goals. Shame on all of you for being so inept at taking care of your staff.

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

    Pros

    Salary - everything else is awful especially the female management individuals.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. The sales individuals are overworked and management is not listening. There is no tolerance in this company.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: please hire people who have advanced degrees as well as years under their belts. Managers should not be 30 years or younger nor should they lack actual life experience.

    Pros

    benefits are very good because it is cvs.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work as a professional. All the good strong pharmacist left due to management abuse

    Advice to Management

    Need to do a major over haul and get competent professionals. The worst I have experienced in my 20 years as a pharmacist.

    I worked at Coram full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty decent. You get a CVS discount too.

    Cons

    Training for the PAR position is bad. Really bad. With the amount of work you have to do, the training is skimp. You’re literally babysitting for the sales people and the pharmacist. I’m sorry but sitting and watching an already overworked PAR for training is just not going to cut it. Not with the amount of work that is piled onto you. Then when they throw you to the wolves, when you ask for help, or have a question,...

    Advice to Management

    Get better training! Stop piling all the work on the PARs. It’s getting to them.
