Shocking to work for
Pts road staff (Former Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire15 December 2017
All in all emas needs shutting down. Management couldn't careless about the road staff.
Staff morale is rock bottom, and the management couldn't care less.
Road staff welfare, wellbeing and health is completely ignored by team leaders, team supervisors and all the other management. There's more gaffers than you can shake a stick at, but they look after their own.

The training department is shocking and slapdash at best. Tutors who use Google to find the answers to fairly simple questions asked by the students.
Question paper's for final exams that containt spelling mistakes that are written and marked by the same inexperienced tutor.

You are used daily on the road until you are fit to drop and then you are still pushed on further by obnoxious and rude control staff.

Hr and recruitment teams are like clowns, the left hand dosen't know what the right hand is doing. It's a wonder they manage to recruit and employ any staff at all.
Pros
Moving on and leaving emas, the best thing i ever did.
Cons
Emas is one big con.

It’s like a toilet it’s going down fast, see how long you can hang the rim.
Paramedic (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire12 December 2017
Red tape suffocates the whole of EMAS
Moral has never been so low,
There is more chance of raising the titanic than resurrecting this hole,
I wouldn’t wish this job on anyone. I’ve seen to many leave, suicide, death before retirement.
Pros
You can escape with your qualification and be an asset somewhere else for better hours and pay.
Cons
This job will destroy you, your colleges and families

Management and some patients

Working in control is a fast changing environment, communication is poor, management are unhelpful. There is a very high staff turnover for a reason. I wouldn’t recommend it to any family or friends.
Pros
Peers are supportive and great sense of humour
Cons
Long 12 hour shifts no gratification

Horrible to roadstaff
Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Lincolnshire18 October 2017
If you work on the road for EMAS, you are treat like second class citizens. Managers are lazy, unhelpful. Big stick culture. Unappreciated no matter how hard you work or how many lives you save. Rotas get worse each time change. Morale on the road is lower then I ever thought it would get
Pros
Job security
Cons
Always late off, overworked, no support, no appreciation for the hard work staff do, constantly micromanaged, big stick mentality, unfriendly rotas, no support... the list is endless
