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

Pros

I enjoyed working with the different accounts. Helping patients. Almost no overnight travel required. Sales training was well done and helpful.

Cons

pay is deceiving because you have to pay for many lunches, and your gas. Getting reimbursed can be difficult . Technology is archaic, You are barraged with constant meetings and reports. Constant pressure from upper management causes sales rep and office manager to turn on each other as I saw happen at several centers.

Advice to Management

If LIncare was an orange company, their corporate philosophy would be , "we dont have the best oranges, but we squeeze them harder than the competition" LIncare underpays at almost every position. Therefore , the quality of the employees suffers. The low pay hurts moral in office leading to an office full of workers who are unhappy, and overworked. The result is poor performance , constant turnover and a reputation in the area for inconsistency. It seems to work for them as the stock price continues to rise, but I cant help but think they would do better if they hired some quality people and stuck with them to develop a better bond with there accounts

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None really. Other than having a job when economy is unstable. Medical field.

    Cons

    POOR upper managment, especially in the MN area. Need to be a more professional organization. Need more staff and equipment to service patients. Very POOR pay for most employees, especially the sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Do surveys to gage how centers are doing. Raise wages for drivers and CSR's. NOT the clinicians though.

    Pros

    benefits and that is about it

    Cons

    Management has zero parental guidence and If your not high on managements favorites ladder you won;t get a day off or a vacation approved. manager and supervisor's are paid full time and work part time, manager's are the last one's in and the first one's out, giving their work to the already over worked employee's under them so they can go drinking and lay by the pool. Chain of command is a joke, coperate is a joke and management is a pack of liars. Employee's offered inhouse positions prior to the person currently employed in that postion being fired. Management pressures employee's to snitch on fellow employee's. Emloyee's are made to write formal complaints against other employee's based on what someone else said. management verbally berates employee's to the point of tears, all in front of other employee's. The word team work is thrown around but undermined at every posible turn. Management does not care about work load, work conditions or workers. Run away!

    Advice to Management

    lop off the head of the beasts!
