    Pros

    Nothing really. There's not much to report. The company is way behind the times technology wise and slow to change.

    Cons

    Salary not comparable to work load. Getting compensated is near impossible. You have pay for all meals up front and the. File paperwork to get reimbursed. Unrealistic goals.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication down the chain of command. Adjust goals to market. Become more standardized.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lincare Holdings (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At the time of my hire there was good training. The benefits are good. The employees are nice to work with and the stress level was normal to other jobs.

    Cons

    It's more about who you know than what you know.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good money, weekends off unless you're on call.

    Cons

    Work day starts at 745, could end, well it may not end. The way it is set up you could get as many set ups that come in before 4 if you aren't on call and if you are on call anything that does come in after 4 then you get the joy of doing it, no matter how far, how late, or how easily it could be done the next day it may be.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the bottom tier employees, WE ARE WHAT MAKES THE COMPANY.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Everyone in the office was young and fun. Felt good to help people and assist them. Pay was pretty good too.

    Cons

    Understaffed, everything was always behind and you could never get caught up. Need more people to help and stop having people wear so many different hats.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to help.

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, very casual dress code and decent hours.

    Cons

    Benefits are not cheap (example: $500 ER copay), Overload of work with limited staff. No direction from management and lack of training when you have limited staff. No effective communication and lack of a knowledgeable manager.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overloading your limited staff with work, hire more people so staff has time to get caught up. Learn to communicate properly for better results.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    Pros

    I have truly thought about this and have found that there are absolutely NO PROS about this position or working for this company!!!!!

    Cons

    There too many to mention in this small space, but here are some of the most relevant: * Workload is overwhelming and many accounts have not been touched in years. * Lincare claims to be "The caring choice in Respiratory Durable Medical Equipment," but neglects to follow that policy 100%. As an employee, I was instructed to collect money, collect money, collect money, collect money; but supervision was not concerned with how the patients were being handled. A "Caring Company," I think NOT. * At end of month, every employee must work past 5:00 pm to ??? until all work is completed. No exceptions. * Office politics, gossip, back stabbing, micromanagement, mismanagement, and lack of effective management. * No access to personal electronics while in the facility. If there is an emergency or someone needs to contact you, it is difficult to get a hold of you immediately. The supervisors are allowed to have their personal cell phones in the facility and flaunt it in front of the lower-level employees. * Directions, daily/ weekly instructions, or tasks are given verbally and seldom in writing, leaving employees to guess or make individual decisions on how and when to complete their work. Also, these "instructions" vary and conflict between supervisors, which leaves the employee in the wrong at all times. * Employee parking is awful and limited. * Starting hourly wages for Patient Account Coordinator ranged from $9.00-$14.00 per hour depending on experience. There were employees that had worked at Lincare for over 10 years that were making less than $10 per hour, while new hires were making over $14 per hour. You get what you pay for and it shows! * Communication is essential in business operations. Use it!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to follow your Governing Principle: The fundamental principle governing Corporate actions and the actions of employees and officers is that ethics and business are inseparable at LINCARE, that no business objective can be achieved without following the highest ethical standards and complying with all the local and national laws and regulations that pertain to our operations. Where are Lincare's Business Integrity and Ethics? I did not see them while employed with your company. If you treat your employees well with incentives, great supervision, decent wages, and a positive, nurturing work environment, the investment will surprise you. Try it!
