Poor Leadership/Lack of transparency
Therapist (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARMay 1, 2018
Leadership fails to take any accountability for their actions and continuously lead staff under false pretenses. Staff are often overworked and expected to double book patients regardless of insurance guidelines and stipulation on therapy and group treatments. If any provider loves their license and will protect it along with their career path at all cost, don’t work for this organization!
Cons
Poor managment, lack of transparency, job security, unethical practices

Access Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, Ar.May 1, 2018
I enjoyed working at UAMS. It was definitely fast paced but they give you plenty of time to adjust and plenty of training time. If you ever need help with something someone will always be there to help.

Medical Denials/Billing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, AR 72205April 26, 2018
UAMS is the same as any other company you would work for when in need of employment. I believe as with any company, if you set quotas/goals for employees to meet, the management staff/hired contracted review companies should be able to make the standards they have set for employees. The management/the hired review team should not be setting standards when they can not meet the goals set in the time required. They should make sure adequate training for employees has been completed in order for their goals/quotas to be met. Don't just pick a quota that has been set by some other facility you visited or reviewed,and your company does not have the same number or employees/and/or you have a billing system issue that is constantly in repair or changes, and you are blaming the employees for not reaching the set goals. It is a given people in high management positions can't even do the job they are expecting the employees to complete.

Has potential for future
Physician (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARApril 1, 2018
UAMS has all the potential to be a great place. Most of my co workers are great. It most serious problems has been the top administrators. Obviously they did a horrible job and drove UAMS to bankruptcy. And yet none of them held responsible. Only low payed small guys are sacrificed This incompetent administrators all kept their job and high salaries Department heads has no accountability and routinely practice favoritism to protect their positions
Pros
Great benefits good salaris
Cons
Incompetent management lack of transparency favoritism

over worked and under paid and no appreciation for their workers
Access Coordinator III (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARMarch 19, 2018
Uams is a great company to work for, the only problem is that there are to many people in a leadership role, there are supervisors, managers, then directors, you are over worked and under paid, there is no growth here since the decline in budget, the people in management and supervisory roles are not qualified to be in the positions they are in and do not know the jobs of the people they are over.
Pros
tuition, health benefits
Cons
poor management, too many people in supervisor and management position

Cost Study Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARMarch 16, 2018
Too much work to do. New jobs added continuously. Management overworked everyone and very few communicated with each other. Demanded too much to be done in too little time. I enjoyed the work, just never enough time to complete with accuracy and then punished for mistakes.
Pros
Some coworkers were great
Cons
stress

Executive Churn Needed
Employee (Former Employee) –  Northwest ArkansasFebruary 24, 2018
Very poor executive level and campus vice chancellors currently in place. Several are unqualified political hires that severely hinder true long term progress. A prime example is current northwest arkansas campus leadership; unqualified, no formal interview process, other candidates that were a far more logical choice for the position were not even considered, and the chancellor that placed this position almost immediately retired. All this points to very suspicious circumstances that should be investigated.

Currently $97M deficit campus-wide with a ‘bottom-up’ severance mentality. Firing low paying positions for $20-30k each instead of redundant and unnecessary executives earning $200-300k is absurd and speaks to current leadership.

Very ‘us vs them’ mentality if you do not work at the main campus. The company actively prevents itself from progress, adding to the common stereotype of an inneficient government body.

A new chancellor will start in July of 2018. In order for the company to correct it’s current course, it is recommended that the chancellor remove several long-term executives as well as a few unqualified campus vice chancellors. open these positions up to a national search and getting the right (knowledgable) people in place is crutial for long term growth and success.
Pros
Retirement match, most colleague, vacation/sick leave
Cons
Unqualified executive level positions, underwhelming pay, low opportunity for advancement

stability less than par
Administrative Analyst (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARFebruary 23, 2018
Small department that was unorganized. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the students. The hardest part of the job was realizing that some peoples cultures will not always mesh with the beliefs in yours.

low pay
