    Pros

    Patient orinted, with growth and solvency in mind. Growing toward the future with technology, a wealth of resources and knowledge.

    Cons

    We need more accountability toward accuracy and efficiency. There are times, as in every business environment, we all could do better at taking care of tasks rightthe first time through.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people on the front lines of your business

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    Pros

    - great for brand new dietitians just out of their DI
    - good amount of clinical training with heavy emphasis on tube feeding (there is 1 week of training in a different state)
    -good entry level sales experience if you want to do sales
    -you get to meet a lot of people in your field (great for networking!)

    Cons

    -very high stress job that is low paying (compared to similar companies)
    -mileage reimbursement is lower than the national average (0.31 per mile) and you drive a lot
    -top management stresses sales and numbers with little regard to patient care
    -high turnover rate within the whole company (RDs and other)
    -disorganized company that effects patient care
    -Culture and values within the company are negative

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of top management and start fresh. Negativity is infectious. There is a high turnover rate in Lincare for a reason.

    Pros

    In the audit analyst position, there was little to no interaction with others. This is good for some, bad for others.

    In the audit analyst position, there was little to no interaction with others. It was very insular.

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

    Pros

    Potential for a better salary than a lot of jobs in our field.
    Co-workers really care about the patients.

    Cons

    Highly driven by profit and lack of patient care (that seems to come from top down).
    Some co-workers were extremely unprofessional at times.
    Hard to be a dietitian/caregiver and have so much pressure to make sales.
    You use your own car, which ended up adding A LOT of miles to two different cars I had. They also do not reimburse the full federal rate for miles.
    Extremely stressful environment.
    No one on either side seemed to have support from upper management and executives.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. I experienced and witness co-workers experiencing stress-related health deterioration.

    Delivery and sales staff have great independence to get their work done. Good customer service

    Cons

    Management seem always over worked. Office behind the times in computer programs.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better training protocols.


  9. "CSR"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about Lincare in Montgomery AL

    Cons

    Constant threats of being wrote up or terminated for not doing enough patients per day. I was told this was not a call center job but yes it is. They somehow "improved" their phone system causing all calls to be routed to Enteral intake dept. Which basically is your phone ringing literally every 3 minutes with a customer who has reached the wrong dept. By the time you get the caller to understand you cannot help them and instruct them how to reach the right dept you end up getting behind on your patient set ups. This leads to constant emails about "expediting" a patient chart and questioning about why you're charts aren't complete...maybe if the phone wasn't ringing every 3 minutes you could get your work complete. They need to fix the phone system so the oxygen and cpap patients can get the right dept or hire call center agents for that. They are always short staffed and I see why

    Advice to Management

    Train people. Hire people to take calls and others to do patient charts not both
