    Pros

    Great schedule, Somewhat acceptable co-workers....Some....

    Cons

    Horrible C.O.O.!!!! Just a numbers guy with no EMS knowledge

    Give the people raises!!! Laying off then hiring cheaper employees is not cool bro.

    Pros

    Corporate office is in a great location

    Cons

    No 401K, outrageous benefits, poor management, low morale. Very clickish. Former VP nicknamed his upper management "The Mean Girls Club".

    Advice to Management

    Slow your roll. In the short time that Allegiance has been in business, there have been many, many management changes as well as investors. Management has little idea what EMS is about and most have no experience with it. Your equipment is shoddy which puts patient care at risk. Your billing department is hanging by a thread. Some very good hard working people, people that were dedicated to make this a great company, were overlooked, let go, ran off, simply by 'not playing the game'. Others with minimal experience were made managers simply by who their drinking buddies in management were. Slow down and take the time to invest in the people who invest in you. I don't think Redd McComb runs his other investments this way or he wouldn't be Redd Mccomb. I venture to guess his people have no idea what a lemon they bought into.

    I have been working at Allegiance Ambulance full-time

    Pros

    -Older tenured employees, especially the old Lonestar folks are great to work with. The culture Bill instilled is still alive in a lot of employees. -Depending on the shift you works its the best pay in DFW -200 Hours a year PTO -All the OT you can work

    Cons

    -Its still private EMS, all the usual problems -A seemingly infinite supply of dialysis runs, more added daily -The Guardian merger ran off a LOT of good management leaving behind the same folks than ran Guardian into the ground -Company is so starved for employees that dangerous employees are allowed to continue to work there -Red McCombs is a big shareholder in the company now, expect a selloff sooner than later; makes for a very uncertain future -Dispatch is terrible, but isnt this the case everywhere in private EMS?

    Advice to Management

    -Let the terrible contracts that run your employees to death go -You've lost your core values and what makes the company good; you've overextended and are having a hard time keeping employees because of it -Retract a bit and grow slower

    Allegiance has turned into a terrible company and does NOT care about Patients or employees.

    I have been working at Allegiance Ambulance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited overtime. There are no other pros except knowing who is the worst private ambulance company in Tx. However lots of experience. Run back to back.

    Cons

    Pt care out the window after "merge" with Guardian. Wages cut 4-12 dollars an hour. Run nonstop. 24s paid less than day trucks and are run like day trucks. No sleep. Must work everyday to maintain regular income. Insurance is terrible and very expensive. Management incompetent and disorganized. Short handed because everyone has jumped ship and quit. Embarrassing to even be a part of this co..

    Advice to Management

    QUIT

    Pros

    They pay for 80 percent of your medical insurance

    Cons

    Insurance was paid 100% by the company before growth. All employees pay cut by 20.5% when took over by Guardian Ambulance All 24 schedules lost Kelly day which increased hours by more than 408 hrs per year on top of regular 24 48. Patient care went out the window expect dispatch to status check you every 10 min. Unless you are married to or related to someone in upper management you will not move up in this company

    Advice to Management

    Realize how many employees you have lost due to pay cuts. Realize how much existing crews are having to bust as to cover pay cuts. Moral is an issue you need to address. I see this company being sold for the next dollar because they can not fix what they have screwed up. I am currently employee looking for a new employer

    I worked at Allegiance Ambulance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    × Great money compared to local competition. × Mostly all new equipment. × There are some genuinely good people at the company(dispatch & crews) × Dispatch works hard and takes brunt of problems from field, best around × The crews work hard despite challenges and are not perfect but ALWAYS find away to get things done × rare micromanagement.

    Cons

    × click- Ish, no conversation is in confidence ever × There is no "true" open door policy, × certain managers teamed together to terminate employees × CEO talks retirement occassionally and doesn't get to be as involved like he once did. × excessive chain of command regardless of circumstances. Way too many hands in the pot at times just so people don't get feeling hurt. Emails are slow to be answered usually if at all so be prepared to stall or face consequences × always seems to be out of stock and excuses on why it isn't being handled yet. Even marketing has hard time getting their materials

    Advice to Management

    If ceo retires, find a replacement that doesn't just have your back when they are standing next to you. Demand to get down to the root of recent problems so that the good folks that never asked to be involved aren't affected by a few poor decisions. Majority of the employee will go to the end of the earth for you but with all the rumors and things that have been witnessed you are on the verge of a runaway train. A tiny glimpse that issues aren't being ignored and voicing their concerns won't make it worse and they will fight even harder to make the future everything and more than you ever imagined. The company can, and hopefully will, do great things as long as the snow doesnt get swept under the rug for everyone else to step in.
