    Pros

    Excellent, fun coworkers (for the most part). The pay is decent for my lifestyle and the benefits aren't bad. The OT is widely available.

    Cons

    I'm gonna toot my own horn for a minute. I came into this company and quickly picked up the work and became good at it. Since then, I've taken on other tasks and responsibilities to impress my management and move ahead in the company. That's not going to happen. My boss claims he/she is always open to sitting with us and listening to ideas for improvement but never writes back to emails, door is always closed and is in a meeting with someone, and is literally the least accessible person on the floor.

    It's ridiculous. I recommend working here for work experience, not for a career. Your hard work will not be rewarded for what it's worth.

    Also many other of the employees enjoy complaining about their workload instead of just doing it. If you're a hard worker who is annoyed by others laziness then this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees you want to hear them and then actually do it. Stop being g hard to reach and build relationships with. Your employees notice

    Pros

    An entry level position to get started on medical sales.

    Cons

    Does not care about employees. The center is in constant disarray and management is sub par. People that only could work at Lincare work at Lincare. Don't waste your time with a crappy company with crappy leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking so highly of yourselves. You've invested entirely too much of your already wasted life on a Terrible company.

    Pros

    Traveling to different areas daily.

    Cons

    They expect too high of visits a day especially in rural areas.

    Advice to Management

    Make center managers take a leadership class because all three that I worked for were horrible managers.

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues; mission is vital to those in need

    Cons

    Personal growth not realistic; regional and upper management very negative

    Advice to Management

    Please, go on Undercover Boss and get a clue as to what your people are going through. Place them in decent offices with supportive calls and advice

    Pros

    The health benefits are excellent... That's about it. I am just using other words to get to my 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    You are surrounded by co workers that are beaten down and have terrible morale because the leadership at every level is very poor. They hold supplies hostage. The patient care doesn't matter at all to anyone above the center level. I can't wait to find another job and get out of here! I wish I had never even considered this job! Jim Vainio and Dan Vasijl are used car salespeople... If they are being nice, they want something from you. Do not trust them!

    Advice to Management

    Too many things to list here. This is, by far, the worst company I have ever worked for!

    Pros

    Very ethical, high level of security, good benefits, good 401K. I think there is good job security which is very important in our current economy

    Cons

    Very little guidance for new acquisitions. Not enough corporate support for important things such as developing and approving new contracts, policies and procedures. Takes too long for employees to get reimbursement for items they must pay up front to do their job. Company departments don't seem to know what each other is doing. Terrible billing structure that doesn't listen to or understand how to bill certain items and contracts. Average salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Be able to listen to and adapt to what each center needs, they are all different

    Pros

    Get to meet lots of really nice patients and work with some decent people in the medical industry

    Cons

    Lincare prides itself on "Customer Service" and has quite a large patient base. The large patient base is at minimum tied to the customer service. Ruthless business tactics (which is a must in the industry) has removed

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to realize that the bonus they earn, the "Caring Choice" is all due to the hard work of their front line staff. RBCOs and Centers are so far under staffed that eventually compliance with rules set by OIG and more strict rules set by individual states will be come impossible to comply with. As it stands if OIG, FDA or state department of health were to inspect centers Lincare would see many centers shut down.

    Pros

    It is a good company if you don't like to work in Hospitals.

    Cons

    Company do not take in consideration their employees, policies change every week to something different, and the company need to improve benefits to retain good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change some policies and take back the good employees that worked for them before. Actually Lincare have a policy of not taking back people that worked for them in the past. THAT'S A MISTAKE!!!!!!
