    Pros

    None. Well maby the delivery drivers. The drivers are the best even after they are belittled and humiliated in front of the other employees.

    Cons

    No written policy & procedure that the employees have, so if they don't like you, old> 55 or have the right size mamemanary glands, they will get rid of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your DM & CM's are not as good as they tell you. No one will tell you any truth if you tell them that you are managment. Get a p&p for the employees to have as they are hired.

    It's a job...not a good one

    I worked at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    My Co workers
    It was better than being unemployed

    Cons

    Upper management was horrible.
    Employees were treated like numbers.
    Over worked and under paid.
    Area manager and upper management lied to workers on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. Offer more incentive. I saw more people quit this job than any other. That costs the company more money.

    Pros

    not much They have a Christmas party (you have to pay for yourself cost me 20.00 last year for a drink and group app)
    Cheap Cheap Cheap ... A good thing?

    Cons

    The most unhappy place I have ever worked. Constant bad swearing and even word that I had never heard in the workplace before that were constantly yelled out by the customer services representatives .They were so overworked and abused by our area manager it was terrible. I have been in the health care business for 18 years and have never experience this kind of disfunction that was in the office I worked in. It was sad. We had a brow beating area manager that made us listen to him from sometimes 1:00 to 3:00 or 4:00 on a conference call and he just liked to listen to hear himself speak. You got called out for going to the bathroom or even taking an order on your cell phone when he was talking on Friday afternoon. What at ego maniac. My sales were not great but I worked my legs off. Central manager recognized this and had to go along with his area manager that likes them young with big...... and pretty. OK 02 is not great in July so my numbers were down and so after two years and nine months I'm done. ok I'm a big girl.. even my manager said that the numbers won't change. Well I could accept all that but do you know that they took me to court for my unemployment benefits!!! I gave them vacation, made every meeting did great at QP3. Of course I won. Just want you to know what a creepy company they are. I was also told that for every bad review they get on this site they write two good ones in house to combat their low star approval. This is a sick company. Beware

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and stop treating your sales force like we are in the military. We work hard and deserve respect and also let us sell and stop having us do all your past held sales crappy work, That's your problem mr area manager big mr little man wanting to be big and in charge. Perhaps you should get a degree and some management courses before you try to make us feel so small. This is by far and everyone in the office will agree with me this is the worst company they have every worked for.

    Pros

    Schedule can be flexible. That's about it. Nothing really to be optimistic about

    Cons

    Low pay. High stress. Unprofessional sales tactics. Gimmicky. reimbursements take forever. Everybody in the office is unsatisfied with company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They do not take advice. If you don't "buy in" and do exactly what they say you are ousted.

    Pros

    Excellent, fun coworkers (for the most part). The pay is decent for my lifestyle and the benefits aren't bad. The OT is widely available.

    Cons

    I'm gonna toot my own horn for a minute. I came into this company and quickly picked up the work and became good at it. Since then, I've taken on other tasks and responsibilities to impress my management and move ahead in the company. That's not going to happen. My boss claims he/she is always open to sitting with us and listening to ideas for improvement but never writes back to emails, door is always closed and is in a meeting with someone, and is literally the least accessible person on the floor.

    It's ridiculous. I recommend working here for work experience, not for a career. Your hard work will not be rewarded for what it's worth.

    Also many other of the employees enjoy complaining about their workload instead of just doing it. If you're a hard worker who is annoyed by others laziness then this is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your employees you want to hear them and then actually do it. Stop being g hard to reach and build relationships with. Your employees notice

    Trash company

    Former Employee - Anonymous

    I worked at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    An entry level position to get started on medical sales.

    Cons

    Does not care about employees. The center is in constant disarray and management is sub par. People that only could work at Lincare work at Lincare. Don't waste your time with a crappy company with crappy leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking so highly of yourselves. You've invested entirely too much of your already wasted life on a Terrible company.

    Pros

    The health benefits are excellent... That's about it. I am just using other words to get to my 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    You are surrounded by co workers that are beaten down and have terrible morale because the leadership at every level is very poor. They hold supplies hostage. The patient care doesn't matter at all to anyone above the center level. I can't wait to find another job and get out of here! I wish I had never even considered this job! Jim Vainio and Dan Vasijl are used car salespeople... If they are being nice, they want something from you. Do not trust them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many things to list here. This is, by far, the worst company I have ever worked for!
