    Pros

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    If you land with the right team you'll enjoy working here despite the inability of senior management to grasp reality. But eventually it will catch up to you.

    Cons

    The leadership at this company is so out of touch with what is happening on the ground that they often spend 5x-10x more than they need to, especially in IT, and end up with stuff that barely works frustrating end users and everyone else. The burn out is extremely high and as another review mentioned, there's a revolving door the size of Texas.

    Advice to Management

    For some, try giving a crap. For others, get a clue.

    I don't have any issues with AMN.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    I have worked with AMN for four years. I am still very happy with how easy it is to contact everyone if I have any questions or concerns. The high level of professionalism and concern for my satisfaction is unlike anything I have seen with other companies. My recruiter Erin McConnell has worked hard to find me contracts and take care of all of my needs. She is a kind person and I am lucky to be able to work for her.

    Cons

    I have yet to encounter a concern that hasn't been taken care of.

    Pros

    I really liked the culture of AMN, people are nice and it's got a strong "team" atmosphere. They are industry leaders and really strong in the medical staffing industry. It's a really good company to learn sales, learn the industry, and get your career going!

    Cons

    The job itself can get a little redundant, it's the same conversations over and over. If you really like building relationships that will keep it interesting! You have to be ok making a lot of calls.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to make employees feel appreciated. Lunches, team events, AMN gear, all those things would help strengthen the culture. Of course making sure the compensation is in line with the industry average will help keep employees happy as well.

    Pros

    On-site café including a partially subsidized breakfast and lunch menu and Starbucks. Modern office building in central San Diego county. They're always hiring which is a pro to the economy of San Diego and this can also be a temporary place to bring in finances while you're looking to begin a career with a company that offers a dynamic culture. AMN Healthcare should be considered a job or a gig and not to be pursued as a long-term career.

    Cons

    Cubicle work environment for those not in a Supervisor or Manager position as they are in offices along the 4 walls allowing them to peer into the fishbowl to maximize micromanagement. Lack of autonomy for their employees, very much a seat-checking workplace focused on input rather than output. Their business model for profitability includes transparent communication around paying employees 20-30% less than fair market value for the job performed.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate your compensation philosophy to increase employee engagement and retention. Offer employees the flexibility to work independently. Remove "Innovation" from your values and add it to your list of goals for the future.

    Pros

    My recruiter, Melanie Douglas-Major, and support staff Sarah Beck and Natalie Ritchie (and many others) always so helpful if I had questions or concerns with my current assignment. And many thanks to Ellen Lavin for enduring my tantrums at the end of my last contract. I have been a travel RN for less than a year, but thanks to "my team", I plan on doing it until I retire! Great way to see the country and work at the same time. Always meeting new people and learning new things that wouldn't have been possible if I had continued at my old job.

    Cons

    If you are new to traveling as a dialysis nurse, make sure you ask how big their program is, how many shifts of patients are expected each day, and how many facilities you will have to go to. My big mistake was going to Dallas as my very first assignment, and the adjustment almost drove me crazy! They had 28 contracts, and I ended up seeing every one of them! Also, everyone thinks travelers make big bucks, and we can (in overtime) but generally speaking we make the same as the full time employees at the facilities, not AMN's fault, the facility decides how much they're willing to pay for the assignment. Also, don't believe other agencies that tell you Obamacare is affordable, because it isn't. And lastly, we don't get paid sick or vacation days; don't miss the sick days because I'm never sick, but vacation between assignments means you have to put money away to cover the week without pay.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if AMN arranged and paid for BLS and ACLS training. Hard to find and schedule the classes. Consider some paid time off after a certain number of assignments as well.
