    I have been working at Lincare Holdings (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a great company when it cared about it's customers and employees then the bottom line was The Dollar no matter who gets stepped on.

    Cons

    The only people to advance are the younger employees due to the work ethics have changed over the years and generations.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people equal and remember that a business only grows from Customer Service not only about collecting payment. If you lose customers then you lose in every department.

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good initial training. Lots of freedom. Good work / home life. If you truly like to help people you will have a good since of achievement here.

    Cons

    Computer systems are from the dark ages. Takes 10 min to login to a computer. Computers are shared between 3 employees. Hard to get paid your commissions. The amount of paperwork and lack of support within the local offices hinders your ability to make more sales. However, this is not true in all locations. Locations are ran at a min therefor all employees are typically over burdened with work load.

    Advice to Management

    Update computer hardware and software. (which the new CEO is arranging at this time) Make it easier for sales to get paid. Having more customer service people in the office would take a lot of strain off sales and would increase ability to generate more business.

    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.

    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.

    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.
