    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Acadian full-time

    Pros

    Supervisors are down to earth, care about the field crews. Management is the same. Great pay for a private service, and a decent mix of transfers and challenging calls. Great place for a new medic like me to learn. Great looking trucks and equipment that are dependable.

    Cons

    Dispatch can be very out of touch with crews, will assign you a new call before you're done with the last one. Dispatch is terrible at prioritizing calls.

    Advice to Management

    Help field crews iron out issues with dispatch. Help dispatch realize that crews need to eat and use the bathroom before running an emergent call for 3 week old leg pain.

    I worked at Acadian

    Pros

    Good advancement opportunities, especially for long-time employees. Education enrichment support and hiring from within encouraged.

    Cons

    Penalty-minded operations mindset; lack of support for employee performance and judgment; tendency to side with external parties over employees

    Advice to Management

    Support employee decisions; reserve judgment until gaining all facts; err on the side of employee interest; do more to engage and encourage field operations.
