I am a volunteer EMT so I have a bit of a different experience than others on this platform. I absolutely love my job regardless. My squad is comprised of people who genuinely want to make the better place and do not mind not getting paid for it. Many of my crew mates also work in paid EMS and love both sides. The culture is nothing like I have ever experienced before. They are the most fun-loving people who will always put down everything to help. We can be goofy in the station and play games, then drop everything for a call. The teamwork is different than normal, especially when there is an emergent call like a cardiac arrest. Everyone adapts to their role seamlessly and does not try to take over. I have never felt closer to my coworkers. I encourage you to look into it, even if you do not think it fits you, because you might be surprised.

I've reported to many managers at HP, everyone has a different leadership style (some more micromanagement than others where I've learned that it depends on the circumstance you are or you need, for example, a kid or 1st day employee would need a more direct style, while an expert on their job only needs support and delegation), but all of them have in common that have practice same HPway which is very respectful and openness to our feedback and way to be. There are mechanisms to always raise the hand in case we have any culture concerns =D
Hope this is helpful to answer your question, anyway, I think that before applying to a new job, this is a key aspect to review on the company you're applying for to feel comfortable and exploit all your potential to grow =D
