I have been working at Emergency Medical Associates full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good learning experience especially if you are a student. You get exposure to all types of emergencies and learn more about the treatments and diagnoses associated with various signs/symptoms. You get great experience using medical terminology correctly and you'll be awesome at charting and being thorough if you decide to pursue other medical careers. Also, you get to watch procedures, examinations, and other interesting things.

Cons

It can be stressful at times, and there are definitely shifts where I only have time to take a 5-10 minute break for the entire 12 hours. You can't plan on getting off on time, either. It can also be difficult sometimes switching between and memorizing the way each specific doctor likes their charting to be done. Lastly, you'll learn that there are a few doctors out of the many you will be charting for that can be difficult to work with - some of them can be rude to the staff at times and create chaos when things get busy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't really have any ideas on things that need to be improved. I guess it might be nice if we were to get more feedback on our performance and what we can improve upon.

    Pros

    The people are generally very nice to work with and willing to answer your questions. Benefits are decent and there are opportunities to grow and develop.

    Cons

    The physicians believe they are superior to others in the company. This may change a bit now that the company was acquired by EmCare and the physicians are no longer partners. Decisions and approvals can take an extraordinarily long time. Many people have been with the company for a very long time, so suggestions for performing tasks differently can take a while to get buy in for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change and continue to be open with employees on the vision and future of the company. With the company's acquisition this is increasingly important.
