Former Employee - Technologist in Lexington-Fayette, KY
Former Employee - Technologist in Lexington-Fayette, KY

I worked at University of Kentucky full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits are good, but deteriorating.

Cons

Lower level employees, who get the work done, are treated like they don't matter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need the people who get the work done more than you need the over-paid administrators. The place is top-heavy and the workers are struggling to keep up.

    Pros

    Great location. Nice access to recreational and educational activities.

    Cons

    Budgetary constraints. State funding is declining requiring large tuition increases (on an inflation adjusted basis) to balance the Universities budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit enrollment to provide a higher quality of education to the students that the State is willing to fund.

    I have been working at University of Kentucky full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great faculty, residents and students in general.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency particularly in the College of Medicine. It is still a "Good ol' boy network".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The UK President should be more attentive to the administration of College of Medicine.
