    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Full benefits.

    Cons

    The reason they approve OT is because they're swamped with back orders. There is no way to earn a solid living at 40 hrs/wk as a customer service rep. The call volume is horrendous because of a poorly managed system. Corp just reroutes all calls to the local center, even though a lot of the calls are meant for, and best handled by, Corp. Long hold times and incompetence before the calls reach the local center create lengthy calls with irate customers. If you don't mind getting your head chewed off with almost 70% of your call volume, then this is the place for you. Management Dodges calls at every turn, your left to make excuses and take messages.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your customer service reps more and you'll create a better working environment! Getting paid peanuts for doing the Bulk if the work is unfair.

    Pros

    Some of th area managers are very motivated and want their teams to succeed.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than average. Feels like you’re just another employee/replaceable. Management hesitant to change. Management positions are filled before staff even know the position is available to apply. The past 3 area manager positions have not been open for application.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, that's it.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. You don't really get trained so it's a sink or swim environment. Management will get over the top rude and if you stand up for yourself, you will get bullied. Pay is extremely low and high overturn.

    Advice to Management

    Fire ALL managers and supervisors and bring in managers who KNOW what they're doing.

    Pros

    none really, there are none I experienced

    Cons

    employees are treated like 'objects' not permitted to say no ot OT if the bosses want the work to continue.
    Not even told when the day will end - whenever the bosses agree the staff may be dismissed for the day

    Advice to Management

    keep trying

    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

    The customers are great to work for

    Cons

    The company is run by a CEO that lives in GERMANY possibly making it to the states to maybe 1-2 times a year to review his meeting results ad to how he can make more money. The company will adjust payroll hours and reduce the employee take home pay. It's minimal to begin with

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of all admin staff in Clearwater fl

    Pros

    It’s a paycheck until you find a better company to work for

    Cons

    Where do I even begin....poor training, every center is staffed very “lean” so if one person leaves or doesn’t pull their weight then the whole center falls apart. Upper management is lost due to the lack of talent in the centers at this point- very few people to promote or even trust to do their job well. No decent person even shows up for an interview anymore. The only way upper management can succeed is to micromanage everyone at every level. They will look for any reason to not pay out bonuses including creating false reasons to terminate you. Look up all of the lawsuits against this company from former employees- they sure aren’t lies. Every employee is nothing but a number at Lincare. Don’t make the mistake of working for them or being a loyal employee. You will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Try supporting the employees that work hard to make you money. Soon, you won’t be left any decent employees if you keep doing things the same way. What goes around comes around. The entire company would be more productive if all the current employees didn’t spend half the day talking about how terrible the company has become.
