    Pros

    You get to attempt to take care of patients if management will allow you to.
    The benefits are ok but not great.
    They don't pay sales staff timely.

    Cons

    No one wants to hear your opinion.
    It's all about the dollar.
    They do not care about their staff.
    You're penalized for asking questions.
    Their budgeting and book keeping aren't accurate.
    Then vacation is good but you can't use it because there is no one to cover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. You have some good people in the field with great ideas.
    Get to know the employees from your acquisitions... they could be awesome staff.
    It's ok to let people work from home sometimes, you can get a lot done.
    Trust your staff. You hired them
    So let them do their job.

    Very rewarding job. Meeting new patients, setting up patients on oxygen, becoming friends with patients and family.

    Cons

    Just trying to get to everyone in the same day. Long hours for reasonable pay. Lots of training especially the driving training and learning where to go.

    Pros

    An opportunity if you're trying to begin your career as a sales rep in healthcare industry

    Cons

    Can't make up focus--changes to day to say so sales reps are lost. You will not be able to do true selling on most days.
    Find every way to not pay commissions.
    Launch new software with NO training.
    No help from upper management.
    Entire staff overworked and underpaid and no candidates to fill positions because they've already heard about Lincare.

    Advice to Management

    Read the reviews and take advice. Pay and reward your staff for all their hard work! Granted, this is how you're still in business because the staff truly does care about the patient!

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. You can get hired without any experience at all.

    Cons

    Before Linde took over Lincare was a good company to work for. Currently employees can expect* very poor training and a severe lack of training, to be given a different answer daily on how something should be done , unfeasible workloads, outdated computer system , everything is top secret and management is continually dishonest with employees, poor treatment of employees, no room for advancement , poor medical benefits , constant unfounded threats of termination, hostile environment, favoritism, low wages and currently no raises as they are frozen, age discrimination during layoffs, and an unprecedented high employee turnover, are all endured every work day. Now they are Outsourcing jobs to Guatemala. The company is greedy and does not take care of its employees. The people with longevity are targets because they are costing the company too much money . You don't want to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest in the present and about the future. Hold yourself accountable for your actions and be an example of what is expected from employees. Treat employees equally. Provide the training you would expect to receive. When your employees leave at the end of each day stressed to the point of exhaustion... It's managements responsibility to take action and find the problem and resolve it. Talk to employees with respect. Don't talk to other employees about their co-workers. Be empathetic and listen. Don't be an intimidating bully. Don't belittle or berate your employees especially in front of others. Ask yourself are you the type of Boss that you would want to work for ?

    Pros

    Center management is family oriented. They understand if you need to leave early or come in late because of family things

    Cons

    The pay is not enough for all of the work you do. The insurance prices are ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Employees would stay with the company longer if the pay was comparable to the amount of work.
