Pros

Generally stable employment with a reasonable schedule.

Cons

Senior management is always looking for ways to line their own pockets through the efforts of the employees. They will give themselves perks and bonuses while telling employees there are no funds for a cola increase.

The union is inept at both negotiation and policing itself. Reading the union forum posts a pathetic example of infighting at best.

Advice to Management

Provide your employees with the same benefits you enjoy and you will raise your own credibility. If you get a raise, we get a raise. This should apply to all forms of remuneration including stock options and bonuses.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Comitted, dedicated employees who truly love what they do and are always doing the best for the company. Great people who are managed so rediculously poorly that the union was brought in out of sheer desperation

    Cons

    Terrible leadership from the top down. Absolute ineptness in every sense of the word. People promoted with no formal education other than being a pilot into key senior "leadership" positions within organization have absolutely no knowledge, experience or education on how to lead. Nurses and paramedics put in field management positions who have never learned a thing beyond their technical trade and then told to motivate, manage, lead and ensure productivity out of a workforce and they have absolutely no capability or competencies to do such a task

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from the top down. Stop employing retreads in the industry. This would never happen at any legitimate company in any other industry If the person failed you two or three times in a row and failed two or three other companies it amazes us how they can be hired again by the CEO. Poor leaders making poor decisions and poor leaders leading poor managers and poor managers leading a great group of people in the field

    I have been working at Air Methods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours
    exciting environment
    fulfilling work
    support by upper management

    Cons

    A small budget for IT - Getting the most basic of needs to do your job is difficult. With 5000 employees Air Methods has the IT department is vastly understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support for IT in getting the tools needed to do their jobs. Hire more quality IT employees by increasing budgets for salaries. Promote from within rather than hiring outside contractors.
