    I worked at Harris County ESD-1 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have phenomenal benefits with friendly staff and coworkers. Great pay and you truly work under excellent management. At HCEC, there is a youthful, yet hardworking culture in play.

    Cons

    At times, life as an EMT or firefighter or dispatcher can be rough. It can be stressful for your family, loved ones, as well as yourself. Rotating schedule makes it difficult to continue education, unless you're okay with online courses.

    Pros

    Harris County Emergency Corps provides a much needed service to the community. HCEC has many hardworking employees that do a lot with little compensation. Great place for medics and dispatchers.

    Cons

    Disappointing senior management. Extremely low morale in the administrative staff.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs ETHICS and LEADERSHIP training.

    Pros

    Good, aggressive protocols. Knowledgeable staff. Mostly good units and equipment.

    Cons

    Pay is kind of low. No overtime. Med control/director babysits the medics. Some units are pieces of junk.
