    Pros

    The opportunity to serve. The people I worked with. Safety record. Ability to advance my knowledge to think outside of the box in order to better care for our patients.

    Cons

    Desired more education. Processes were always changing and employees never knew what to expect.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the whole process in base culture.

    Pros

    Lives are saved. Everyone does believe in the company's cause and there are great people working at this company. Company is woefully behind in technology and operations process management to the point it can "begin anew" once it goes public or is sold again.

    Cons

    Good people continually leave due to low compensation. HQ: Each department operates as its own entity or company, sharing as little information as possible with others. Once/if AEL goes "public," MASSIVE restructuring will be needed (an outside, objective firm needs to review all operations). Diversity training is needed at the HQ location from the top downward. Relocated West Plains personnel are siloed and often resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    "You get what you pay for.." It cannot be more succinctly stated than that.

  3. Fairly good company to work for.

    Pros

    They do have a good education system in place for new hires and continuing education. You are able to get your instructor for AHA and be able to teach to obtain overtime.

    Cons

    The schedule is terrible. 7 days of 12 hour shifts in a row. If you are late getting off (which happens on average 2-3 days during the 7) you have to be back at your regularly scheduled time. If you live any distance from the base, it gets extremely tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Paramedics and RNs do the exact same job and have the exact same responsibilities. Make the pay rate closer between the two. There is too big of a gap.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and progress your career. The education is second to none and I have benefited from becoming a better clinician because of such training.

    Cons

    Travel and work life balance can get in the way. You're taught to maintain one but the company will let you work as much as you want. You just need to set priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Make ops get on same page as everyone else and stop hiring people that attempt to capitalize on friendships for flights.

  6. Billing department is nothing but politics and favoritism.

    Pros

    Pays well for this area
    Hsa program with up to $500 employer match

    Cons

    Management are childish. They reward tattletales. You walk on eggshells afraid someone is going to take something you say the wrong way. Extreme favoritism. Their favorites are allowed to side step the rules. They seek revenge on those that do not conform.

    Advice to Management

    Please come to West Plains and interview some of the employees. Everything probably looks fine to you in O'Fallon but you need to see what's going on behind closed doors.

  7. Not a good place for an RN

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Only worked 2 days a week (24 hour shifts)

    Cons

    Poor training for nurses. Driving distance too far from any metropolitan area

    Advice to Management

    Listen when people provide feedback about your training. Realize that nurses weren't trained as EMS providers and don't put them in the position to compromise their license. RNs BEWARE!!!

    Pros

    gained air medical transport experience. became familiar with air transport operations, continued education, some ability to grow due to various positions, i.e. base program manager, base clinical lead, educator, etc

    Cons

    feeling like a number. it was once a family company, then sold to investment firms with only desire to resell, grow and resell, repeat..

    Advice to Management

    bring it to family feeling again, not about the all mighty dollar...

    Pros

    Colleagues. Two monitors in each cubicle . The job itself is rewarding. The people we talk to always have positive things to say about our life team crews.

    Cons

    Insurance , $4000 deductible. Low pay. Company was sold to Bain Corp over a year ago. Noe the main focus is productivity and "measuring" each employee individually. This has actually slowed down the productivity hence the title I gave. Micromanaged. Paperless is good except when the system continually fails, as again goes against productivity. Needs to find a better system.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better and ease up on the pressure tactics, very demoralizing. You have some terrific employees who are looking for better opportunities.

  11. Very good experience,I got to know and make good friends I will always keep in touch
