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

    Pros

    I’m sure each center is different but for the most part I control my own destiny. I enjoy the job and I love a challenge. If you are lazy and don’t want to work this job isn’t for you!

    Cons

    Need a more formal training process for day one. Have a clear path towards promoting. Upper management needs to have a mentor program for individuals wanting to move up.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Center Manager is kind, reasonable, level-headed, and supportive.

    Cons

    The company is decades behind its competitors in terms of technology and communications. Upper management is a revolving door and does not listen to lower management or staff, possible because they do not have enough autonomy to make positive changes.

    Advice to Management

    Update pay and technology to match competitors, or you will continue to key staff.

    Pros

    Good pay, Patient care, Good colleagues

    Cons

    No work/life balance. With the amount of work and frequent under staffing, it is nearly impossible to work your 8-5. There is also on-call, but you have time to plan your weeks around that.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to be honest with your superiors (VP, district managers). Respect & investigate what local centers report. Map out patterns and address it with your superiors. Sweeping things under the rug helps no one.

    Pros

    The fellow co-workers are nice too work with.

    Cons

    This company is a sinking ship there is no accountability. Promotions on May solely based on favoritism and not qualifications. Upper management is rarely seen and never there too help. Stay away at all cost this company Lincare/American Homepatient is a dead end.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at culture of the company and realize you our part of the problem.

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

    Pros

    Overtime
    Sitting
    Personal space
    Can listen to music

    Cons

    Passive aggressive manger and supervisors
    Micromanaging
    Constant surprise projects
    Changed job position without notice
    Only cares about pulling in money and not about the customers/patients
    Minimal training (no phone training at all---learn as you go)
    Not enough time given to complete reports and penalized if they are incomplete
    30 min lunch break
    Mandatory Saturday once a month when that was never mentioned during the hiring process
    Last 5 business days are mandatory extended hours (cannot leave until told and it is usually at least 2 hours past your normal leaving time)
    Does not care about employee's well-being

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your employees. If you all say that you want a work environment that is positive and happy, then you all need to be that way behind closed doors. Stop being passive aggressive and start actually caring about your employees. Start speaking with employees about reports they feel are priority because they are the ones that will get penalized if their goal is not met for the month. Talk to the employees about the changes that they would like to see at Lincare because they have see the flaws and know what can be done to change it. Once you talk to them, really hear them and start making the necessary changes. It will help the company tremendously.

    Pros

    There is really nothing good to say about this company. You have to ask for a raise no company picnic no bonuses

    Cons

    you are overworked, they never have enough equipment on hand god forbid patients want a POC = portable oxygen concentrator we are told to tell the customer they are on back order when they are not only because we have a contract with Medicare and we are supposed to carry everything from the bid again that’s a joke this is a DME co. with no equipment and when they get it it’s not in good condition ask the customer.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t think there can be any advice to the Management they all lie to save their job.

    Pros

    Insurance after 90 days, uniforms IF you get them.

    Cons

    Everything from pay, workload, management, compassion ... not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Better leadership, better pay for employees, more compassion for the patients, less OT, remove DriveCam from the vehicles so drivers don't feel like every move is monitored, remove leaders that are openly doing weed & don't get caught as they always carry MonkeyWhiz incase they get tested ... very toxic environment to work for.
