Challenging and fun
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 15, 2018
The manager that was assigned was against fresh talent and pushed me out of the office. Otherwise it was a great place to work. I managed to push many tickets while getting to know the people and policies of the company. I would recommend people to work here.

Aircraft Maintenance in the Air Medical field can be extremely stressful at times, but with Air Methods everyone has their place and most have a great sense of purpose. Proud to have had the opportunity to work for a great company.

good and bad
flight medic (Former Employee) –  somewhereSeptember 10, 2018
This place is not terrible, but not the greatest either. There is obvious favoritism and if you aren't "in," then it will be pretty miserable (in my opinion). You work approximately 8 days a month but have required meetings to drive to which may be up to several hours to attend base meetings, training etc...If you live close to a base, no real problem but most of the meetings can easily be written out in an e-mail which would save tons of time. Unnecessary amount of paperwork for your charts. Pressure at times to take flights. "Lift times" in my opinion are a bit extreme. I understand the contracts etc.., but theres no reason in my humble opinion to have a fast lift off time for an inter-facility transfer when this is 90% of air medical. Safety should always be of utmost importance and putting pressure on pilots and med crew to go fast is absurd. Thats when things get missed, people lose focus, and accidents happen. I like to move with purpose but not rush or run.

Local management was good, but higher ups don't even know your name. You are only a number and a body in a seat to make a schedule. Mandatory on call days because SOME people abuse and call off regularly means you may or may not get called, may have to travel up to 6 hrs (I believe) to a base to cover up to 48 hrs or repercussions will be had.

I am thankful for the experience but glad to say I no longer work for them.
Pros
patient care; great co-workers
Cons
pretty much everything else.

While it may not be for everyone due to on call schedule, the work you do saves life. Experience with the company varies depending on regional management.

Wonderful company to work for.
Patient Financial Counselor (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJuly 19, 2018
I would contact members in regard to their air ambulance bill. Although this position was a high stress position due to the fact that most of the people being contacted had just had a life changing event and weren't happy about the amount of their bill etc. It was also very rewarding when you were able to assist either by getting the claim rebilled through ins or just getting some of the balance reduced.
Pros
Very fast paced environment.
Cons
Mandatory overtime, most of the time working 60hrs per week

Brute force management mentality, offers a great service to the community
Airworthiness Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COJune 19, 2018
There was a strong culturally driven workforce that stood behind do things the same way as it was done the past 20 years. The brute force mentality of management and the desire to continue doing the same thing and expecting different results was their MO. As an AS9100 company there are certain things you can expect to have to do, not just need to do. This was not the case, having the AS9100 certificate was what got them Government contracts and that was all that mattered.

Many of the employees were held down to this standard, unable to improve the culture, ethics, and relationships between departments. There was no unity, teamwork, or symmetry between departments and in some areas within their own group. It was a war every day and some people enjoyed it.

The unfortunate part of the company is the unwillingness to be great, the potential and possibilities were there, but the senior leadership knew that moving into that realm would essentially loosen their grip on the employees and the company and they wanted nothing to do with it.

The positive: there were a lot of great people working there and those that did everything in their ability to try to make it a great place to work. The service the company provides to the community is an incredible part of what makes them great.
Pros
There are some great people that work there.
Cons
Unwilling to embrace continuous improvement and remove the culturally driven mentallities

Flight Nurse (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaMay 30, 2018
Great company to work for if you want to continue your education. Corporate structure leaves a lot to be desired. Upper management really does not value or listen to low-level line employees.
Pros
Good equipment and training
Cons
Terrible management structure

Pros
Freedom
Cons
No hanger

Time not wasted
Flight Paramedic (Former Employee) –  Montague, CAMay 17, 2018
Good job, good employees for the most part. Management fails to communicate, fails to effectively mitigate problems. Base closures all the time so you never feel safe buying a house or making big life decisions. Nothing in life is guaranteed, but unfortunately they won't tell you if your job is shutting down when they see it coming months in advance. If management and job security improved, it would be a good career.
Pros
Decent pay, education.
Cons
Lack of communication, poor business management.
