    I have been working at Bud's Ambulance

    Pros

    The only reason to become an employee for Bud's is the experiences obtained performing 911. As an employee you will see everything from the most ridiculous medical to the most horrific of mci's.

    Cons

    The downsides are plentiful: pay, security, stability, etc..... The equipment is dated and the vehicles are carbon monoxide traps. The system protocols are also very consevetive, that is, your hands are mostly tied. The only defense is that the communities are mostly made of uninsured non tax paying citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck...better training, employee reviews, repairs, system assistance. Downfall is you are contracted to the hospital that also provides your training.

    Pros

    The only reason you should come work at this company is for the 911 exposure. You will run some spectacular calls and learn a lot and see a lot on the job. It may make you a better paramedic.

    Cons

    The management is extremely incompetent for the most part and you will have to succumb to everything they say and have you do. You can have no opinions or suggestions. You will do great at this company if you can be a mindless drone and a yes man. They don't pay you enough and work you like a slave. There is no job security or stability. You can be fired at the whim and fancy of management with no reason given whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with the dignity and respect they deserve. They are out on the streets saving lives. The patients are usually thankless and mean. No reason they should have to endure that behavior from their employer.
