    Pros

    Working as a Membership Sales Manager provides flexibility, independence and potential for bonus money.

    Cons

    The company has made greedy changes. Trust me, all decision makers at the home office only care about money. They do not care about you or your life. Unrealistic monthly budgets are set from home office. You will be expected to sell helicopter insurance to places and people who cannot afford the bare basics of life. Six months is the standard time to get sales piped in to the greed lords at home office. If you miss the unrealistic budgets after six months, you will hot on the radar, micro managed, and treated like dead weight on the greed train. If you are able to live off $1,000/mo take home salary, with the hopes of obtaining over 70 memberships per month, so you can get another $1,500/mo equaling $2,500/mo, then this job is for you. Keep in mind, you do not get paid on renewals, like in insurance sales. Every single month is zero-to-hero. If you have an epic month in sales, the very next month, you are treated as number zero all over. This is a very restless and greedy company. Be ready to live under life-draining working conditions. The daily stress will become part of your home life. You are selling fear and unsolicited goods in rural areas, where keeping your doors locked is the safety precaution. There is not leads or field help. You are expected to generate the monthly budget, with whatever you can. Most of the time, you will be making cold calls and doing old school door-to-door sales. Ultimately, this job is a glorified door-to-door sales position, with occasional peaks. It's really not for everyone. AirEvac has lots of turnover for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being restless and greedy. Stop making inaccurate and unrealistic monthly budgets. If you can do it better, then get out of your air conditioned house and let's see what you've got.

    Pros

    Good pay for the area, you learn new things, co-workers become like family

    Cons

    favoritism, bonus are not very good, they don't reward the hard workers, they hard workers & not so hard workers get the same treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the work people do, not who likes who.

    Pros

    Air Evac is a great company that cares about the employees and the patients, trying to "do the right thing".

    Cons

    The job has extensive training requirements. It has periods of boredom interrupted by periods of adrenaline rush. Flight suits are hot in the summer.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice I could offer to the upper management other than continuation of the current level of care.

    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.

    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

    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.
