    I have been working at Air Evac Lifeteam full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been flying with the company since 2011 and I am convinced to my bones the company cares for each individual.
    Safety is paramount.
    They listen to your concerns and want to find ways to improve.
    Pilot, Nurse, Paramedic, Mechanic... all positions are seen as equally valuable.
    Work Family. Not voworkers.
    Best job ever. Saving lives in the sky.
    I've worked for other flight companies and Air-Evac has the most employee friendly environment.

    Cons

    For the experience you have to have to even be considered, the pay is low. BUT the stretch between patient care compared to hospital or ambulance is much better. Do in context, the usual decline in pay from ground to air is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your crews' opinions when hiring a new person
