I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

*No shortage of job opportunities, because someone's always leaving!
*Possibility to stay with the same company if you move around the country.

Cons

*Reputation for revolving door of employees at all center positions is well deserved. In my 2 years: 2 Center Managers, 3 CSRs, 3 HCSs, 2 Sales Reps, and 4 drivers. After 2 years of service, I have more seniority than 19of 21 people in my immediate area.
*Huge ever-growing, ever-changing expectations at all positions - especially for the CM and the Sales Reps. (The moving target/flavor of the month syndrome)
*Equations for determining number of center employees equates to a skeleton crew, at best. This is the perfect recipe for disaster.
*Continual focus on numbers disallows any focus on patient's needs OR employee satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make positive decisions to invest some short-term profit back into the company. This includes hiring more staff! Set a long-term goal of making this company one of the most secure, profitable and respected companies in the industry. It would be better to make $100,000 for 25 years than to make $150,000 for 5 years and be out of business because you have no employees left.
It really is a shame that a company consistently making $250 MILLION profit PER QUARTER, has such poor resources and compensation.

    All about the bottom line while miserable employees hit rock bottom

    Pros

    IF you get into a center that has good people you can survive this place a little longer than most.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for what is expected. This company only cares about the bottom line. Many times Customers are left with no service or waiting for someone who never shows. Billing is much more important than customer service. If you are looking for a Customer Service this is not for you. To hear people suffer and not get the service they deserve is heartbreaking. Lincare is always changing and buying out other local DME company's, which means your job is never secure because there are frequent management and employee changes. People get fired left and right along with others who have nervous breakdowns because of the pressure. Training? Stinks, they dont have a training program together. Even smaller company's have class room style training, It took over 6 months to get in most of the training that the company requires. Watch for those little slips of paper they have you signing and if you get written up once, that means there is a target on your back. They use "creative" firing methods very well and above all trust no one in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a TEAM environment. This is a horrific and stressful place to work but if you can offer some relief and support people in your center will work harder for YOU. There is no recognition for anything done well and no rewards. Maybe its time to implement these. Local Newsletter? Company functions? None. What makes employees feel good about working for Lincare? Fundraising for the local community or showing that you care is nonexistent.

    Pros

    Great company to learn the business and move on.

    Cons

    Too many to list. It's a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should visit their office's. See how things are really run. Everything is left to a managers 'discretion'. Comical.
