Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Decent benefits, large company that is constantly expanding, close to industry standard pay.

Cons

Corporate is in Denver so most promotions would need to relocate. Management is a good ole boy bunch. CEO states an average 3% pay raise for all employees, then management gives 2%, no reason to shine since the poor employee will get the same raise. For CBS base’s you may get 4 days off a month and it will be last minute so you can’t plan. Hand book states certain benefits but management finds ways of not giving them out. The company is run differently in each region. Same CEO greed as every other major company, CEO makes $600,000 in stock options and we can’t even get a cost of living raise.

Advice to Management

Fight for your employees and get them decent raises and time off from being on call.

    Pros

    Good environment. Very flexible about working from home. IT management very approachable. Interesting business. Organized - got a laptop with all passwords and access on the first day! Employees can ride in a helicopter on a flight for life.

    Cons

    More consultants than staff. Some critical people were not included in the project planning and should have been; as a consultant I could not recognize the omission even though I asked several times.

    Advice to Management

    I keep reading in the paper that another helicopter crashed and that everyone on the flight was killed. Is there anything that can be done to avoid this? Should the rules for permitting flights be more stringent?

    I worked at Air Methods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was with the company for 5 years but all the real growth has been the last year.
    Fun challenges
    Some flexibility with schedules as remote work is allowed sometimes.
    Learning environment- the senior director will always take time to provide coaching and resources.

    Cons

    If you are coming in as leadership training is minimal because they expect you to be a self starter, need to reach out to fellow members of leadership rather than expect them to have a book telling you everything you need to know.
    There is a disconnect between corporate leadership and leadership directly in control of production.
    Don't expect a lot of live work balance, it was not uncommon for me to keep working till 2 AM from home to keep up with the workload.
    TOO MANY MEETINGS- and then a follow up meeting about how there are too many meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for toxic people coming into the organization.
