    Pros

    Travel, somewhat good money if payroll didn't mess up so much

    Cons

    Horrible company values and leadership. AMN who is part of MedTravelers needs a lesson in customer relations and how to properly do payroll. Many, MANY of my fellow colleagues have complained about AMN and their payroll system. I even know of someone who was told to "use a calculator" when payroll messed up their time card via a "keying error." In the end she ended up owing AMN over $4,000 due to their mistakes (mind you this was from an assignment she had finished almost 8 months ago). The way they treated her and how they went about discussing this with her was not professional at all. This is one of many cons about working here. When you do have a customer support issue (like you will) get ready to be on hold for an hour or two. This is a corporation and their main concern is about the bottom dollar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management in payroll, change the way people submit their time sheets to payroll, give all of your "customer service" employees a lesson in customer service. These poor people seem burnt out and or just plain rude. I think more and more people will continue to have issues with payroll. Instead of focusing their energy and the companies money on fixing their mistakes - proper training would be beneficial.

    The cafe. A parking garage? Crappy management?

    Cons

    On a day we give thanks, I'd like to give thanks to AMN for no Christmas time off...to a three year tenured employee whose family is 3,000 miles away. Thanks for allowing me to not see my family on Christmas...for a job I can do, and asked to do remotely. And was denied. Thanks guys!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about you not have employees work holidays. And pay more than $15-$17 an hour

    Pros

    Hmm lots of women? easy to make friends.
    Good for entry level position / recent grad's

    Cons

    Management
    Not a professional environment
    Little room for growth
    Little pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to redirect your focus to your employees. Turn over is so high in many departments- I blame this on management and partially HR. There is not enough QUALITY development happening here. It's also not the most professional environment , employees including management often belittle one another and that's the norm. I once saw a manager flip off an employee (jokingly but who does that)?
    Promotions are based on popularity rather then merit.
    Training is extremely minimal- good luck, you are on your own mentality.

    Pros

    People are nice but fake

    Cons

    Low Pay; Upper management has absolutely NOOO idea what is going on. Some people drink the koolaid but thats because they are fresh out of college. Its pretty sad how glaring it is. Honestly executives, you guys do nothing that really matters. You are lucky the macro effects of obamacare is helping you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. Interview people in accounting and on the front lines. You truly are pathetic.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    onsite cafe, clean work environment, parking structure

    Cons

    Highly political, gossipy, back-stabbing, cut-throat leaders who create and encourage an atmosphere of internal competition that overshadows the ability to work collaboratively and in the best interest of the organizational goals. When you have to spend so much energy on playing games, watching your back and wondering who is trying to push you out so they can get ahead or who is going to take your ideas to the top as their own, it creates high stress/anxiety, low trust, a lack of focus on what's really important, underperformance, and no organizational unity. There is a constant churn of people in and out of this organization. In order to succeed at AMN, keep your head down, don't suggest change or confront the status quo - "the way we do it", and work as hard and fast as humanly possible. Hmmm.... sounds like a job ad for a sweat shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This fish stinks at the head. My advice would be to the Board ... take a closer look. This is a smoke and mirrors leadership team who paint a pretty picture, smile for the camera, and say all the things that sound good/a twist of the truth, but behind the scenes the real story is very different. You would think HR could help to create a stronger culture of collaboration, but unfortunately, they are a big part of the existing problem.

    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They brag about the cafe with Starbucks. None of its free. The purpose is to keep you from leaving the building so you'll work a 12 hour day. Nice places pay for lunches.

    Cons

    No communication from HR or IT. I had no idea what was going on. Weeks to get answers. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase pay and bonuses to retain staff. Institute progressive discipline, verbal, written, suspension, termination (over a 30 day period). Allow employees to work part time rather then be laid off because of reduction in force. Provide 30 days notice of layoffs and generous severance. Don't terminate at the drop of a hat with no notice.

    Pros

    Coworkers make the place tolerable, cafe is nice, gym is small but decent, friendly people

    Cons

    Management is the point of failure, expectation is way too high for what they pay and there is no clear communication between team members

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The i.t manager needs to learn basic communication skills with his own team instead kissing a**, high turn over rate
