    Pros

    casual work environment, nice hours, paid holidays (11 days per year)

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about what is happening on the center level. Hard to order equipment for patients, it all depends on your centers numbers. Forget everything you know about patient care and learn how to lie to them to cover your butt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the corporate office and go spend a day or two driving with a service tech and see how many stops they make a day and how little of that time is spent with the patient. See how hard it is for the CSR's to get through the day with the phones ringing off the hook and being understaffed. Must be nice to drive an Audi or a Jaguar while the other 95% of employees go home worrying about money every day. Change your motto- Lincare is NOT "the caring people".

    Pros

    The freedom of being out and about and helping people who need you and your company.

    Having to uphold the company while not knowing what is actually going on because your told just tell them this and that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be able to do all aspects of the job not just talk down to people and boss them around.

    Pros

    You are not tied to a desk.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work or how much business you are responsible for bringing into your center, your paycheck will reflect very little of your hard work. The support team for your success is almost non existent. If you are looking for consistency based on your high performance...keep looking.
