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

Pros

*No shortage of job opportunities, because someone's always leaving!
*Possibility to stay with the same company if you move around the country.

Cons

*Reputation for revolving door of employees at all center positions is well deserved. In my 2 years: 2 Center Managers, 3 CSRs, 3 HCSs, 2 Sales Reps, and 4 drivers. After 2 years of service, I have more seniority than 19of 21 people in my immediate area.
*Huge ever-growing, ever-changing expectations at all positions - especially for the CM and the Sales Reps. (The moving target/flavor of the month syndrome)
*Equations for determining number of center employees equates to a skeleton crew, at best. This is the perfect recipe for disaster.
*Continual focus on numbers disallows any focus on patient's needs OR employee satisfaction.

Advice to Management

Make positive decisions to invest some short-term profit back into the company. This includes hiring more staff! Set a long-term goal of making this company one of the most secure, profitable and respected companies in the industry. It would be better to make $100,000 for 25 years than to make $150,000 for 5 years and be out of business because you have no employees left.
It really is a shame that a company consistently making $250 MILLION profit PER QUARTER, has such poor resources and compensation.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    free coffee and overtime work, if that is your thing.

    Cons

    I felt that they did not appreciate me as a valuable employee. There are too many cons to list. I have higher education, great skills and experience. I felt that everything was drained out of me. I was ready for the mental ward before I left Lincare. I felt a lot of fear while being employed there. I don't want to go into detail here for fear of being sued for being frank and honest. I am so happy with my new company. I never realized that this is how a company is supposed to treat it's human resources. A company should treat employees well if it wants to remain profitable and competitive.

    Advice to Management

    You can run a car in the red for only so long before the engine blows up.

    Pros

    Great company to learn the business and move on.

    Cons

    Too many to list. It's a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should visit their office's. See how things are really run. Everything is left to a managers 'discretion'. Comical.
