    Pros

    Worthy Cause for serving the needs of patients. People want to live at home longer, do better there healthwise, and deserve to be treated well

    Cons

    Lousy Industry with drastic reimbursement cuts, declining service capability and unappreciative referral accounts. The industry is squeezed, so the service staff are asked to work insane hours for crap pay. Sales gets pulled in fifty directions with little to no quality "product" to sell, since low pay combined with long hours leads to massive turnover in the service departments.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline Workflow, Expand Territories

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

    Pros

    I enjoy my immediate team mates. Pay is decent in comparison to the work load. There are advancement opportunities if you desire to pursue them.

    Cons

    As a Center Manager, it is very hard to retain support staff at such low wages. Service Reps tend to make in the $12/HR range, working on call weekends and after hours. These same employees can go to Apria Healthcare, have no on call at all, and make $16/HR or more. Another con is that no matter how good you perform month after month, if you slip just once, you are made to feel very unappreciated. There is a very oppositional attitude from partnering departments such as RBCO and O2 Conversion. Everyone always seems to be "passing the buck", making it extremely hard to find answers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay you people!

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros of working for Lincare are that Overtime is encouraged and is helpful when extra money is needed. It's also paid at time and a half.

    Cons

    The cons of working for Lincare are that Overtime is required to maintain your work load. There is so much that needs to be done and so little people to get it done. Your job is never done and you will never be "caught up"

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees and stop spreading people so thin!

    Pros

    Absolutely the best manager I've ever had but unfortunately, not all locations are so lucky. There is a HIGH turnover at this company.....for a reason.
    But, the cubical space was large and private and overall a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover.
