Pros

Due to the nature of this business, it is almost innate that you will become a member of the family - the majority of employees do care for one another and their personal growth.

Cons

Coram's leadership and culture truly tries to put their patients first and employees second, but too often those parties are ignored and the leadership is found to be the primary focus on decision making.

Advice to Management

You have created corporate values to live and grow by, stick to them and focus on them in every decision.

    "Coram-Years of Bankruptcy problems, diminishing physician referrals, and miserable employees."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best, and only reason to be an employee at Coram is the fact that it is a Home Infusion Company. As a Registered Nurse, this is considered to most in the field to be one of the best arenas to work in. Hospitals are very labor intensive, patient acuity (how sick the patients are) is extremely high, and the nursing shortage is immense. So, for a Registered Nurse to have a job where she can be out in the community, and not confined in a facility, is obviously considered optimal.

    Cons

    Coram has been plagued by bankruptcy issues for approximately 20 years, barely keeping themselves afloat. I can only assess the competency of management at the local level involving the branch located in Charlotte, NC. The Pharmacy, Branch, and Nursing managers at this location are grossly incompetent and totally detached from the dedication that you would expect them to contribute. Compared to other Home Infusion Companies, their salaries for nurses ranks among the lowest. Several nurses, and employees from other divisions have had serious complaints about management. These complaints were expressed to managers at the Corporate level to no avail. These managers at the Charlotte branch were singlehandedly responsible for destroying the physician referral base in surrounding cities in North Carolina, to the point where during the years of 2004-current, they basically have no referrals in wide areas of the community.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, treat them fairly, compensate them appropriately, and clean house when needed.
