I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Historically, management has had a steady hand that allows for job stability. Lincare has never ever laid off employees. (Although, once Linde sale goes through, layoffs won't hurt stock prices anymore so they could be likely). Somewhat fair pay, employee costs for benefits are competitive or lower than most employers. They like to see you work late, but its not usually required nor rewarded, generally you can expect a 40hr week with little surprises or demands for OT.

Cons

Ultra conservative upper management is very hands off, they only focus on bottom line of the financials. This company is a money machine that runs lean, top sales people and upper management are only ones that reap benefit. Work environment varies from department to department. There is no plan, culture or upper management oversight for the work environment. Your job is as good or bad as your manager makes it. Depending on where you are working, you could be happy as could be or working in a miserable environment. Unless something draws attention to your manager, it's their show and they run it unchecked the way they see fit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only reason this company is successful is because most people naturally have integrity and some form of a decent work ethic and drive to perform. As management, you do nothing to foster this, you just hire people with skills and talent they have obtained elsewhere and then take and take and let people burn out and eventually they leave Lincare. Management only invests in employees so much as they are educated to not violate Heathcare/Medicare rules, you do nothing to help employees grow.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the different accounts. Helping patients. Almost no overnight travel required. Sales training was well done and helpful.

    Cons

    pay is deceiving because you have to pay for many lunches, and your gas. Getting reimbursed can be difficult . Technology is archaic, You are barraged with constant meetings and reports. Constant pressure from upper management causes sales rep and office manager to turn on each other as I saw happen at several centers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If LIncare was an orange company, their corporate philosophy would be , "we dont have the best oranges, but we squeeze them harder than the competition" LIncare underpays at almost every position. Therefore , the quality of the employees suffers. The low pay hurts moral in office leading to an office full of workers who are unhappy, and overworked. The result is poor performance , constant turnover and a reputation in the area for inconsistency. It seems to work for them as the stock price continues to rise, but I cant help but think they would do better if they hired some quality people and stuck with them to develop a better bond with there accounts

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None really. Other than having a job when economy is unstable. Medical field.

    Cons

    POOR upper managment, especially in the MN area. Need to be a more professional organization. Need more staff and equipment to service patients. Very POOR pay for most employees, especially the sales reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do surveys to gage how centers are doing. Raise wages for drivers and CSR's. NOT the clinicians though.
