I have been working at American Medical Response full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Great place to gain experience in emergency medicine.
-Most divisions run mostly 911 calls
-Its the largest private EMS company which means you can transfer locations and get deployed anywhere in the country if your an Emergency Response Team member.
-Good training program that helps people who are new to EMS
-They employ good EMT's and paramedics when compared to some private companies that are out there.
-They encourage employees to do whats best for the patient even if it hurts profits

Cons

-The local operations manager and general manager basically run everything at the local divisions so if your stuck with an incompetent manager then it is not a fun place to work.
-It is a very cooperate company so they make decisions that make the most profit.
-The pay and benefits is fair but it could be better
-The people at the very top only care about profits, so if your local GM runs the place into the ground just to make a few extra buts, his boss will see that as a good thing.

Advice to Management

They need to work towards advancing the private EMS industry. The general public hates cooperations and would rather have the public sector (ie. Fire Departments) run EMS, even if it is not the best option. If AMR is going to expand and grow they need to put more effort in changing the public's perception of private EMS.
