Too many expectations to perform and exceed but not enough compensation for the grief received

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLarge enough company and every center operates more or less independently. Corporate leadership is varied and seems to be genuinely interested in growth.

ConsBenefits are minimal and each office has a different environment from the other. Each location competes rather than cooperates with each other which filters down to the staff level. Very poor moral in some locations. Too much work with the constant micro-management from above to exceed expectations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible corporate office! Zero respect

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

ProsAbsolutely nothing except for the coworkers who are all fed up with the same stuff, there is nothing to do but ban together.

ConsCulture and tone at the top is disgraceful! This company has a long way to go if they want to keep good talented employees! Respect is non existent from supervisors/management. No communication within or between departments. Salary employees treated like hourly(more like kindergarteners). You have to swipe in and out of the building and they are always monitoring when you come and go so they can use it against you not to give you the raise you deserve. Quoted from my supervisor "they[VP,Directors,management] are always watching you". Management is spineless, passive aggressive, two faced, unqualified and ignorant. No one in there right mind would stay there and that's why they're going to keep seeing people quit! The work was easy, and that made it boring. No room to advance, all staff employees. They don't want to have to pay you more money! Please do yourself a favor and don't work here, the market is hot right now. Do your research and find a company that values their employees, and rewards hard work and treats you like a professional.HR is clueless or they have a clue and don't care, which is even worse. It is like the wild wild west, I don't see the point in HR when management does, says and acts however they want.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's not ok to take advantage of people. Grow a pair, don't get other people to do your dirty work for you and hide in your office!

Valuable experience, terrible company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 8 years

ProsEmployees master the art of stress management. After the experience working for Lincare, you are given the tools to handle working anywhere.

ConsMistreatment by upper management. High turn over, terrible company to work for.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop putting under qualified, uneducated people in area management roles.

Review from (5 + years) Employee

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDo your research before accepting a position with this company.

ConsTraining and tools to be successful in hired positions are lacking. There is a high turn over of employees. Upper management has lost sight of the roots of it's business - their employees. An unreasonable amount of responsibilities are placed on limited staff. Low wages and pay.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Extremely Disappointing

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lincare Holdings

ProsI enjoyed working with a couple people in my immediate area.

ConsPromotions are issued based on friendships only, not skill or hard work. Upper management is lacking formal education. Horrible management of product availability.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees on the front line. I read many reviews and decided to take a chance with Lincare. It was nothing short of a complete waste of a year of my life.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good industry, archaic & narrow-minded upper management

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
California City, CA (US)

I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time for more than a year

ProsGood industry & very good level of patient focus & care

ConsLincare upper management consider employees very disposable....very high turn-over of employees at Lincare. Employees are overworked and underpaid and have to work with archaic computer systems. Lots more cons

Advice to Senior ManagementTake off your blinders and put energy towards employee retention-would be good for bottom line.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
