    No respect

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood insurance good retirement 2 days off but not on weekend descent vacation but only when they decide to give to you paid holidays but you work all of them they give you 4 extra hours pay for doing so even if you work 14

    ConsThey have a pay system for drivers that they constantly get wrong they can't even figure out but stick behind it your just supposed to check every week and let them know when they shorted you 25 out of 52 paychecks will be wrong you will finally give up and just take what they give you they could make better schedules but they refuse to because somebody may have to think that's not going to happen at the end of week pay is not bad but knowing they shorted you 5 to ten dollars eats at you and they don't care you should be glad you got a job

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a education

    MOM and POP vs CORP..... Civilization or Barbarism

    Production Tech (Current Employee)

    ProsYou are the only limit as to what you can do. Lateral and vertical movement, positions globally, great pay, pension, 401k, reasonable for the time healthcare premiums.. Hard work is recognized and rewarded.. Team players.. New Management!!

    ConsA lot of the legacy Spectra Gas employees are having a hard time meeting the expectations set forth by The Linde Group..

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of or move up and out 80% of the Legacy employees. Its more cost effective to pay their severance then to continue to operate so inefficiently. It is an employers market with plenty of HUNGRY young motivated people to come and prove themselves in positions that other folks just think they deserve because they showed up for the last 10 years..

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people for the most part. Watch out for manager climbing the ladder.

    ProsGreat Benefits, great pay for the most part. Enjoy the organization's educational classes when given the opportunity to attend.

    ConsPut in many extra of hours with no rewards. Unless your in the club. Short staff most of the time that no one can get their vacations or time off.

    Lincare, not suitable for longterm employment

    Service (Current Employee)

    ProsHelping people in the community by seeing to their healthcare needs in the way of durable medical equipment and supplying oxygen to them.

    ConsEmployees are not treated equally.
    Different rules apply to different employees.
    At times, one must work in a hostile environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would serve you well to pay more attention to your center managers, what is and mainly what is not being done daily to further Lincare and adhere to its mission statement. Rules are being created according to the manager's wants and not implemented in the employee handbook of Lincare.

    More factory than a lab.

    QC Lab Analyst (Former Employee)

    ConsDangerous, getting hired on takes a while, outdated and poor analytical equipment, heavy favoritism, bad company culture, poor team work, hostile work conditions from management. and don't work there if your a contract employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate your equipment, improve the work conditions, and improve safety.
