    I have been working at TriState CareFlight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    48 hr shifts
    100% paid Insurance
    State of the art equipment that is regularly updated
    Great People at the base level

    Cons

    Home office management out of touch with the everyday operations at base level and seems to micro manage instead of letting each base function in the autonomy that will make it successful. Don't seem to value experience and seniority. Have problems with timely responses/ communication and tend to react more than respond or even plan ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and value us at the bottom, we are in the trenches and have great ideas to make us function and successful,

    I worked at TriState CareFlight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pilots are experienced and well paid.
    Word-of-mouth hiring seems to find great pilots.
    Aircraft are in great shape.
    Mechanics are conscientious and responsive to Medical Crews and Pilots alike.
    Flight Crews tend to stick together. They count on each other and form tight bonds.
    Very little back stabbing in the BASE.
    Base Managers do their best, but do have to choose between themselves and staff. Some times they go the direction of the Base needs.

    Cons

    Human Resources - One person, and, well, with 25 aircraft fully staffed, this just isn't enough in HR. Basic needs like flight suits and Insurance cards just fall to the wayside.
    Most things that have to do with the Medical side.
    Management is inexperienced, arrogant and punishes input from staff.
    Protocols are ridiculous, to the point that most crews ignore them. Sadly as long as it's billable, and no facilities or Doctors complain, no action it taken in regard to this.
    Medical equipment is not maintained. I don't mean poorly, I mean NOT.
    Supply lines are badly broken and have to be costing the company tens of thousands in losses each inventory cycle..

    Advice to Management

    Look at who you've lost over the last year. Fired because they intimidated you, or quit because they had principles.
    When you find the common denominator, ask yourself if the company gained or lost.
    Take a critical look at who's at the top, and how long they've been there. If the exceptional people you have lost are both more experienced and more professional than the senior management, rehire and demotions are in order.
    Conduct drug screenings and anger management training at your annual retreat instead of current plan.

    I worked at TriState CareFlight full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great schedule, base personnel were awesome. pay was ok but not great. (unless you're a pilot, then its great).

    Cons

    they fired the best clinical manager and replaced him with a RN that is a tool. terrible management abilities. if you bring something wrong up to the management you are looked at like you're an idiot, they do not want your input.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Air Methods is to fire all current managers and place your handpicked management team at the helm of this once great company

    I have been working at TriState CareFlight full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, emphasis on education from self starters at the base level, pretty sweet schedule.

    Cons

    Management is clueless, most have no experience on the line let alone as managers. Education is worthless, company doesn't pay for required certs.

    Advice to Management

    Go to a class on how to manage people, put an emphasis on education, have some scruples which whom you hire and don't be afraid to weed out the clinically incompetent.

    Pros

    Top of the line equipment
    AS350's at high altitude
    Exceptional Pilots

    Cons

    Nearly everyone in Bullhead City is a dysfunctional clone.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that have 10 years of experience and stop hiring managers without any experience. You have (had) many people with alot to contribute but you'd never know you were aware of that out at the bases.
