If you want to work in the healthcare staffing industry, AMN is the market leader. Just don't expect a long-term career.

Pros

AMN Healthcare is the leading healthcare staffing company in a very competitive industry. It is a large, financially viable company and therefore most likely among its competitors to survive through a turbulent economy. If you want to work in this industry, AMN is the strongest company in this sector.

Cons

This company suffers from high turnover. The work environment is fairly gossipy and there is a lack of personal connection among the employees. This is one of the few places I've ever worked where I didn't consider even one of my co-workers to be a real, trustworthy friend. There is talk of career planning, but this is mostly lip service and very little effort is put forth to ensure employees are happy and developing in their positions adequately. It's pretty much a sink or swim environment, and when the market is tight, most employees will sink. However, when the market is growing, it is possible to thrive and make a satisfactory living with decent job security. Currently, the healthcare staffing market is in a down-turn.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on employee retention by better keeping a pulse on the mood of the workforce and make more of an effort to position employees for long-term success in their positions.

    When times are good - it's ok - when times are bad, it's terrible.

    Pros

    Beautiful San Diego building, knowledgable staff, very organized and informative training and materials. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. You always feel supported and appreciated.

    Cons

    The company is very much about the bottom dollar before the employee. They don't necessarily understand the concept of motivating sales people with the dollar. They try to use career growth and 'thank you's' as their main source of motivation. Although they appreciate you (as long as you do well) you definitely get a sense of a revolving door with the company. Quick in and quick out, but for those who stay - they stay long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that a little bit of money spent goes a long way. Offer prizes and incentive for your people to perform. Setting goals that only your top performers can hit is only motivating those that are already performing.
