    I have been working at Uhlig full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I’ve been working at Uhlig for almost two years now, and I feel that after spending an abundant time with the Company and working on different teams with various colleagues, I can truly provide my honest review of the Company and all that comes with it.   I’m sure if you’re reading this review, that means that you’ve also read the others on this page. Yes, the walls are gray, and so are most of the items in the building,...

    Cons

    A challenging job, but if you're up for a challenge and like to gain experience, it's definitely for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. We all know you are always working towards improvement.

    "These jobs aren’t what you think."

      Former Employee - Proofreader 

      I worked at Uhlig full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The coworkers are nice people, and the medical documents to proofread were interesting.

      Cons

      The jobs are not as advertised. That’s my biggest beef with this place. I wanted to edit documents, but that was only about 5% of the work. The majority of it was checking variables to make sure patients’ diagnoses were correct, their addresses were right, and everything in the textbook was correct. There is also hard-copy proofreading, which involves putting sticky pockets on books — not a duty that I thought I would...

      Advice to Management

      Please, talk to your employees about what you can do better. This could be a good place to work, but you don’t seem to want to make it that way. The employees aren’t the problem. Yes, you can always find new employees to replace us, but is constant turnover really what you want? You could be losing very skilled people because of this poor approach. Be honest with what the job will entail, and let people who will be working...

      I worked at Uhlig full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - They hire some very kind, talented people, but their potential is squandered through poor management in every department. - No issues getting paid on time. Standard benefits (for my needs, anyways). - I can only imagine that this is a tolerable place to work in three instances: 1) You're fresh out of college and just want to add a few months to a year's work experience on your resume. 2) You want to work in a slow-paced...

      Cons

      I agree with the majority of the critical reviews already posted. - The CEO seems paranoid about every aspect of his company and exhibits obsessive compulsive tendencies that trickle down to every department. This creates an absolutely terrible company culture, and most of the employees seem miserable every day. - I didn't feel respected by my supervisors who were reluctant to even hear about the ways I wanted to...

      Advice to Management

      Reach out to third-party experts who specialize at improving culture and employee retention, like Franklin Covey, Gallup, etc. This place seems to operate the same way companies did in the early 20th Century - treating employees like objects instead of individuals. There are so many easy ways management can improve the culture here, but they simply are not open to hearing it. They need to commit to actually investing...

      I worked at Uhlig full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Uhlig offers great opportunities to work with a team and advance in your career. The company has several divisions and the company is growing fast so there are great opportunities to advance and have a long successful career at Uhlig. Everyone in the division I worked in from managers to my peers were amazing and really care about each other. I looked forward to coming to work every day because of the amazing people...

      Cons

      Roles, duties, and other day to day functions do change on occasion, but in a growing company that should be expected and change can be a good thing.

      Advice to Management

      Keep taking great care of your employees and making everyone feel at home. I have had jobs in the past where I felt micromanaged and with Uhlig I never felt like that was an issue so keep up the good work! I see great things coming at Uhlig.

      Pros

      The environment can be demanding at times, but you end up better for it. They consistently reward hard workers and are extremely loyal.

      Cons

      Not many. Need to buy into the company vision to make it.

      Pros

      None that I can think of.

      Cons

      All of the negative reviews are dead on. This place is garbage. And the security goons that stand around like they cops are laughable.

      Advice to Management

      Sell the company so you can stop being the worst company in the kc metro area to work for.

      I worked at Uhlig full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Some of my coworkers were moderately pleasant at times. The bathrooms were usually pretty clean. My paychecks were always on time.

      Cons

      It has been several years since I worked at Uhlig, and I have needed all of that time to detox from the experience. It is your stereotypical dreary, micromanaged corporate office -- in fact, have you seen the movie "Office Space"? It's pretty much like that. Someone is always looking over your shoulder, watching your every move. There is no freedom for personal expression or room for advancement. The pay and benefits...

      Advice to Management

      Respect your employees. Treat them like human beings and not cogs in the corporate machine present only to enhance your bottom line. Loosen up some of your strict policies re: PTO and sick time and recognize that people have lives outside of work.

      I worked at Uhlig full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Got paid on time. Had excellent colleagues -- the only reason I stayed as long as I did. Otherwise? Nada.

      Cons

      Read all of the other negative reviews. They do an excellent job of describing the multiple problems of dysfunction. (Make sure you read the last paragraph of my "advice to management.")

      Advice to Management

      Hello, Uhlig management! So nice to see you reading these reviews! How do I know you're reading them? It's not a secret among your employees. They have all heard how your management team sits together in meetings trying to figure out who wrote them so they can lay blame when the CEO demands to know why people are complaining online. It would never occur to any of you to actually consider the totality of problems and realize...

      Pros

      Good people Good clients Lots of parking

      Cons

      Executives are out of touch with employees. Fosters competion between departments that borders on combat. Cold, gray offices. Fun is not allowed

      Advice to Management

      Allow your employees to breathe Allow your employees to make some choices Add some color to the offices Have more fun events, not the same event every Christmas.
