    Pros

    Ultimate Medical Academy is 100% dedicated to it's mission of creating better lives and opportunities for its employees and the students we serve. From the CEO to the dedicated employees throughout the organization, this company is all about results for our students. The culture is fast paced and at times stressful, but that is all a part of being the best. Really proud to work at this great company and look forward to continuing to better the lives of our students.

    Cons

    The company is a bit slow to respond to the growth and keeping up with training and resources for its staff. Although, these are probably standard growing pains in any business with substantial growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on our mission of empowering students to achieve rewarding careers in healthcare. Also, continue to listen to the managers who provide valuable insights on business improvements.
