    Pros

    Retirement benefits. Vacation/personal time benefits. Value education over seniority. If you are a fast learner and eager to keep learner, you will be successful.

    Cons

    No annual raises. People are treated based on job title. For example, faculty is ALWAYS more important than staff. First impressions are everything. Very little training; sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with respect. From the person emptying your trash to the boss overhead, everyone has a job to do to make UAMS successful. Remember, it is a team effort.

    Pros

    Benefits are wonderful: retirement, paid vacation and sick leave. The people I work with are wonderful. The supervisors are really helpful and friendly as well.

    Cons

    Same thing every day. No bonuses. No raises. They don't really value their employees opinions. The laboratory department is really neglected.

    Advice to Management

    Raises and bonuses people!!! Don't forget about the smaller departments that have the biggest jobs when it comes to results and bloodwork for the patients.

    Pros

    Great place to learn, meet very interesting people, interact with new technologies. Starting salary is average, benefits are average to above average. Offers discount programs for schooling, and is great place if leaning towards a medical career.

    Cons

    Raises average 2% a year. Be average or below average at your job but outstanding in the political correctness arena and you will go far. To get ahead, absorb as much as you can, expand your network and move-on within 5 years and your career will benefit far greater than staying here. But if it is security you crave you will find a cradle-to-grave mentality here.

    Advice to Management

    Skip departmental management and go to the line workers to find out what it is like to work in those departments. When people are outside the range of their managers and have no fear of reprisal it is very interesting what is said.
