Great benefits; pay not the greatest

Research/Clinical Program Manager (Former Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I worked at UAMS Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBenefits are wonderful (sick/vacation, retirement match, tuition, citywide discounts, etc.), flexible hours, worked here for 7 years...would've moved up in the company, but I moved out of state.

ConsPay is not great, but that's most state institutes.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation should be based on years of experience; perhaps bonuses if available.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall, the organization is a decent place to work.

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I have been working at UAMS Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe best reasons to work here are the benefits and the flexibility.

ConsThe main challenge to working in my current division is that one of the leaders does not have the background knowledge it takes to be in her current position. As a result, we have experienced some negative changes (i.e., high turnover) within the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo better the organization, my advice to the director is to go back to square one and find out why the organization has changed overnight. It may also be very beneficial to consider promoting from within, instead of bringing in people from the outside and they make thousands more than those who have been here for a very long time. These two things right here may have retained those of greater value.

Horrible infrastructure and poor outlook in terms of job market

Medical Laboratory Scientist (Former Employee)

I worked at UAMS Medical Center full-time for more than a year

ConsDepartmental politics and arrogance of upper management is bringing down the whole company.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember why you decided to go into this field. It's about improving healthcare and training the future of Arkansas medicine.

Solid place to work but not a lot of room for advancement

Project/Program Manager (Former Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I worked at UAMS Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood overall job but UAMS is a very political environment. Benefits are good. Lots of federal holidays off and good job to raise with kids because you get a lot of vacation and time off. Most of which coincides with the time your kids have off.

Conspolitics can get in the way of real progress. t is difficult to get promoted and it is not a lot of upward mobility. They don't fire people so the same managers keep their jobs for years and there is rarely any movement.

Advice to Senior Managementconsider doing more thorough review process to get rid of managers who are running away good talent. Managers are also not held accountable for not meeting their goals.

Excellent hospital to start your medical career

Intensive Care Technician (Former Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I worked at UAMS Medical Center full-time for more than a year

Prosflexible schedules, availability of professional growth, exposure to advanced procedures and new medical devices, professional staff, large variety of medical cases and demographics

Conshorrible parking unless you pay for it, traffic adds 20-30 minutes of commute time unless you work evenings or nights, being state it's harder for bad employees to get fired, nurses are held in higher esteem than technical workers and allowed to abuse them even when the nurses are in the wrong

Advice to Senior Managementwork harder to advance the proficiency of your technical workers and provide parking deck access for free. your employees shouldn't have to pay to come to work,
