    Pros

    It is a good company if you don't like to work in Hospitals.

    Cons

    Company do not take in consideration their employees, policies change every week to something different, and the company need to improve benefits to retain good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change some policies and take back the good employees that worked for them before. Actually Lincare have a policy of not taking back people that worked for them in the past. THAT'S A MISTAKE!!!!!!

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Chosen overtime, busy, easy-going, great pay for the experienced

    Cons

    lack of HARD workers, some people throw you under the bus to get somewhere, lack of communication but what job has everything? I guess I have worked crappier companies like WELLPOINT for many years and just love this job too much compared. I wouldn't give it up for nothing and I work in one of the busier centers. To the complainers, I am sure there is someone who is on unemployment who would love your job right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone and not just your favorites. The seniors are not always right and typically not up to date.

    Pros

    As a sales rep, if you hit your targets, you have a lot of autonomy. You also get a pretty good marketing budget. I think the commissions are pretty good.

    Cons

    Customer service staff can be less than stellar, making it hard for your to follow up on what you promise to MD offices. Marketing dept materials are pretty lame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to promote/ retain good salespeople. I was very successful, but didn't want a Center Mgr or Area Mgr position, so they really had nothing else to offer me other than status quo.

    Commission is uncapped and there is room for advancement

    From a sales perspective, getting expenses back is way to difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to improve operations at a local level, you need to offer a more attractive compensation plan to attract more qualified professionals.

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    I guess I must be lucky after reading other reviews to have a great team in place. Everyone helps no matter what the job is and we are all committed to the success of our center. I have found good support in my area manager and the regional manager. Yes, it takes a special person to do this job but only because you need to be committed to your patients and the growth of your center and it takes every person in the center to have this commitment for success.

    Cons

    the health benefits could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an outlet for employees to give suggestions on how to improve Lincare and show employees that they are taken seriously by implementing some of these suggestions that make sense for Lincare.
