Not a family friendly company.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Omaha,NEFebruary 19, 2017
If you start this position you will be on over-nights and on call 3-4 days a month. They're constantly short-staffed and the management has no idea what is going on. They will put you on a desk even if you're not properly trained on it. If you have a family, be prepared for long working hours, weekends and holidays. You're not allowed to request holidays off. If your partner calls out, you will be picking up the slack.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Long hours, work weekends and holidays. Drama!

Flight crew (Former Employee) –  Texas, New Mexico, FloridaJanuary 27, 2017
They will close a base with no notice and give you a two weeks to find another job or you're terminated. They have no investment in human capital, it's just open a base, close a base. So, don't sign a lease, or buy a house, just get some experience and move on. They shortened the PTO and sick time accrual to almost nothing, no raises for years, the bases had no air conditioning, or heat, the roofs leak. Employees were paying for beds to sleep because no one would buy them beds. Worked in Texas, New Mexico, & Florida. Not all bases are the same in crew quarters, but the company is the same.
Pros
Pay is average
Cons
Everything else.

Look elsewhere if u can!
Government manager (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CADecember 15, 2016
The lack of training, interdepartmental communication, negative overworked environment is evident the minute you walk in the door. They use "tactics" to keep employees happy but overall is not a stable, well adjusted place to work. You are a star pupil if you can brown nose & work 12 hour days. Management is "encouraged" to put in extra time on nights & weekends, otherwise you can't get your job done. They are quick to let people go if they don't see immediate improvement but don't give any training on how to get the job done.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Overworked, no training, favoritism

Fun workplace with a very involved leadership team!
Communications Specialist (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEFebruary 21, 2017
Very fast paced job with a very meaningful purpose, but can be very stressful at times and is not right for everyone. Management is great to work with and for. They are very involved with day to day operations and very concerned and accommodating for each staff member! Definitely the best work experience of my life!
Cons
Com center is based solely in Omaha

Great job...if you can keep it
Flight Paramedic (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLJanuary 4, 2017
I may be a little jaded because I was subject to a base closure and could not relocate, but it is my opinion that this is a great job without any job security. Even a busy base will close if it means the bottom line is better for the shareholders. Excellent training and great schedule though.
Pros
Great training and calls for service
Cons
No job security, be prepared to close with less than 1 hours notice

Great job for flight nurses/medics
Flight Nurse (Current Employee) –  Valdosta, GADecember 7, 2016
The company provides extensive continuing education. There is a lot of turnover with middle management but that is not unexpected with a large corporation.

Rewarding Mission.
Helicopter Ambulance Pilot (Former Employee) –  Clarksdale, MSJuly 27, 2016
Stressful missions but good support from co-workers. Highly scrutinized and regulated industries; medicine and aviation. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction of the crew members. The hardest part was keeping track of continuous changes in paperwork and procedures.

Productive and a great learning experience.
Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COJune 5, 2016
My typical day consisted of maintaining product bills of material, planning future work orders and purchase order.
I learned many things in relation to modifying medical helicopters and GPS systems.
Management was very flexible in order to plan and schedule production based on customer orders.
The hardest part of the position was to develop a production plan based on labor and machine capacities.
The most enjoyable part of my position was dealing with very skilled employees that were able to define processes that I might have been unfamiliar with.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Some supervisers were mico managed.

Pros
Everything about this company and it's culture.
Cons
Little advanced notice once they hire you.

Communication Specialist (Former Employee) –  Omaha neAugust 3, 2016

DATA INTEGRITY SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAMay 12, 2016
This company does not promote awards, advancement or leave room to improve your work/life. The training was brief and done via Instant Messenger. The Management was strict but did not have resources to back up the work that was being enforced.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Long hours no time for family

Very fast paced environment
Contracts, INS Lead, Cust. Service and Collections (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAApril 1, 2016
This is a very fast paced environment, which is great, you will learn so much about so many different aspects of each medical billing department. The only downside is the attitude of the managers in relations to the employees. Taking sick time, vacation time, or family emergencies is frowned upon, regardless of how much sick/vaca time you have accrued. There is mandatory overtime which is disclosed as being maybe 5 hours of overtime per week, the reality is you will be working around 50-60 hour weeks.

The best part used to be that to make up for so much mandatory overtime, there used to be a lot of department potlucks, department activities, games, and a few employee appreciation luncheons.

Overall, I had enjoyed working for this company until management took a turn for the worst. Hopefully this company will eventually fix this issue.
Pros
Learning about all different aspects of the medical field.
Cons

Air Medical Services
FLIGHT PARAMEDIC (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 29, 2016
Air Methods is the world's largest provider of air medical transport services. I have been with the company for over 5 years now, and it has largely been a good experience. The benefits package is very good; they will match 401k contributions up to 8%. The salary for medics and nurses is somewhat lower than the industry standard, which is problematic in an area as expensive as southern California. The hardest part of the job for me has been working 24 hour shifts. My preference would be to do 12 hour shifts, but this is not an option with the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is flying around the beautiful terrain of southern California. I became a paramedic to help people and that will always be the best part of the job. You get to help people through very traumatic situations and make a difference in their lives.
Pros
Lots of days off.
Cons
Unstable business environment and long hours on duty.

SENIOR INTERNAL AUDITOR (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COMay 5, 2016
The pay was pretty good but the internal audit department lacked focus and had no leadership. There's no room for advancement and management is clueless.

Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COJanuary 1, 2016
A typical day at work is great, management is great, learned how to use Ulti Pro a new Payroll Software for me. Co-workers were extremely great to work with. Hardest part of job was staying late on Monday and Tuesdays of pay week, the most enjoyable part of the job was when payroll was finished and sent out to process.
Pros
Great place to work at.
Cons
Manual payroll working with and downloading spreadsheets.
