    Pros

    You get to be a medic where AMR has a monopoly, so if you want to be a medic where it responds to 911 calls, it's likely you're only choice.

    Cons

    There is no interest from AMR in making you a better healthcare provider, they just don't want to be sued. They also post your stats for all to see, highlighting your percentage of transports. Why? Because they make a profit, which means that you are supposed to instruct patients without any real need in going to the hospital, without insurance, that they should absolutely be transported by ambulance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become whistle-blowers and/or make it so that medics can actually make changes to the company to make it better.
