I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than a year)

Pros

IF you get into a center that has good people you can survive this place a little longer than most.

Cons

Not enough pay for what is expected. This company only cares about the bottom line. Many times Customers are left with no service or waiting for someone who never shows. Billing is much more important than customer service. If you are looking for a Customer Service this is not for you. To hear people suffer and not get the service they deserve is heartbreaking. Lincare is always changing and buying out other local DME company's, which means your job is never secure because there are frequent management and employee changes. People get fired left and right along with others who have nervous breakdowns because of the pressure. Training? Stinks, they dont have a training program together. Even smaller company's have class room style training, It took over 6 months to get in most of the training that the company requires. Watch for those little slips of paper they have you signing and if you get written up once, that means there is a target on your back. They use "creative" firing methods very well and above all trust no one in this company.

Advice to Management

Create a TEAM environment. This is a horrific and stressful place to work but if you can offer some relief and support people in your center will work harder for YOU. There is no recognition for anything done well and no rewards. Maybe its time to implement these. Local Newsletter? Company functions? None. What makes employees feel good about working for Lincare? Fundraising for the local community or showing that you care is nonexistent.

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

    Pros

    Being able to help patients and provide a needed service

    Cons

    Management has no clue except trying to get their required numbers or quotas.. Training is unprofessional and most of the time just requires the employee to sign off stating training was done. Too much micro managing done by middle management. Presenting products and equipment falsely to patients. Not enough staff at each office.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to look closer at its middle management and the way they let a company such as Lincare become third class. Make sure the centers are clean and equipment up to date. You are dealing with human lives

    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.
