    Pros

    Very fasted paced, you worked for every cent they paid you. The work is naturally gratifying. Things can be very complex and its a challenge. Come with energy and a positive attitude and you will love it. Leadership was incredible in the Northwest- Idaho, Washington and Oregon. Incredible career and growth opportunities! A bit disappointed that I left, actually.

    Cons

    Low pay, outdated management systems.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount of employees, decrease the amount of steps it takes to get things done with better tech and less management requirements (reporting). More pressure on the sales reps to preform with better commission structures but LOWER base salary.

    Pros

    Meet great people. Build great relationships in the community and learn the DME business.

    Cons

    Stretched too thin. Too many products being introduced with a 100% focus and loose track of core business.

    Advice to Management

    Need to in crease size of staff at each center. Customer service is effected when staff is stretched too thin and most losses of customers are due to this.

    Pros

    Trying hard to change to become more efficient. Wants to stay competitive in the industry. They are willing to listen to what you have to contribute.

    Cons

    With the changing they are trying to make the change is a little rocky. It is sometimes crazy and you not very sure of why something is happening till later.

    Pros

    Lincare is a steady, but slightly under-payed, paycheck until Medicare is inevitably reformed. When that day comes, the company will likely go in to crisis mode, and I will be sure to leave long before that happens. DO NOT make this company a career. If you need something to hold you over until you find your next job, then apply. Otherwise, keep walking.

    Cons

    It only takes a few months working in the corporate office to realize how shady and cheap this company is. Emails are deleted after 30 days, call centers do not record conversations with PT/customers, and I receive way too many calls about PT's medicare insurance being billed for items they never asked for for it to be just an "accidental error". For the young/uninformed, billing an insurance for medical supplies that one never asked for or received is called insurance fraud, and is definitely a felony. It's only a matter of time before this company sinks and/or becomes volatile, either through losing its medicare funding, or through the inevitable reform in medicare in the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    Gain some sense of what is ethically and morally right. Then treat your employees better. I promise that you can do these things and still turn a hefty profit.
