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

    Pros

    Company is making great progress, automating its operations and creating a positive culture. People are excited about growth and positive changes.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happening, which is good and means employees need to be open to change. But the changes are improving efficiency and the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work going. Good things are happening, and it's creating a positive energy at Lincare, which is taking hold throughout the company.

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

    Pros

    Good job if you are independent and can be self taught. Hours aren’t bad, pay is decent. Work environment is good.

    Cons

    In the dark about a lot of things. You must teach yourself because no one will be able to help you if you don’t. Upper management is a mess and does not care about its employees.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Great leads, weekends off, great schedule

    Cons

    Management demeans you, doctors notes mean nothing if you dont have sick time to cover missed day, written up for almost anything, even being a minute late from lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Work on supporting people trying to make it out here

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Monday - Friday 8am-5pm, unless you are an on call employee.
    Paid Holidays, vacation, and sick days.
    Full benefits package for all full time employees.

    Cons

    Little to no training, or support.
    The Manager is expected to perform training for all new employees, and keep up with their requirements as well. This can result in high stress particularly at month end.
    Turn over rate is high due to low pay vs what is expected from employees as well as lack of training.
    If you take a management position, be prepared to have the world expected from you. If you are fully staffed, with an office that has been trained properly, you should have few issues. If you are not, or end up at some point not being staffed, be prepared to give your entire life to the company with little to no acknowledgement or appreciation for what you do. You must realize that no matter what you do, how hard you work, or how much you give, it will never be enough. If you can handle those kind of expectations you will be fine. I was able to handle it for a while, and did fine. However, it does eventually catch up to you.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule training sessions for new hires with corporate trainers. It was extremely difficult as a manager to train new hires properly , and keep up with all other job requirements. Listen to what managers say about how the corporate trainers ,who do show up, are performing, and make changes where needed. Support of Center Managers is crucial, but lacking in this company.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good insurance and holidays/ vacation time

    Cons

    Worked for several years. Management is two faced and picks favorites in a small office, hanging out in off time. Inappropriate relationships to move up or keep job. Keeping friends over those more qualified for the job. Some practices made me very nervous like having things set up before it was actually approved. No encouragement from management locally or higher up. If you are a HCS they don't give you a car, you drive your own... which adds up quick! Just a few things I encountered.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and their time. Give incentives and bonuses regularly. I had ONE in three years.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing! The benefits and paid time off were ok.

    Cons

    Over worked and over stressed! Used to receive BOXES of paperwork each day that had to be processed in a 2 day time frame. Mandatory overtime at end of month, had a few too many times where we didn't get out until after 9 at night. Service centers tried to do sketchy things to meet their quotas and keep their Held Sales down.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the extra money to hire additional employees.
