Little Rock Arkansas- Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – June 5, 2018
At UAMS I knew I was valued but not pressured. Day to Day I had concrete goals and the largesse to reach them. Managment was polite and helpful. My superiors were attentive and they really took care of me. I learned about research methods and takin care of people.
Registered Nurse, Cardiac Progressive Care (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – May 4, 2018
I've been with UAMS since I graduated nursing school the first time and haven't looked back. I choose to work at UAMS because of the innovative culture they offered. It became a second home for me and my coworkers are my family and make my experience working as a floor nurse on a very busy med-surg floor worth every minute.
Department of Physician Assistant Studies (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – May 2, 2018
My direct supervisor found a way to fire me after I got pregnant. I complained to HR with no results and found out two years later that she had been fired for pregnancy discrimination against students. She conducted a total smear campaign to get me fired.
LPN (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 27, 2018
I believe as of all places uams family med. had its pros in cons, but I feel some of the employees are overlooked and undermined which lead to an increasing amount of negativity in the work environment. also lacked salary increases, which created difficulty with providing for my child and I as my job is the only means for providing.
MEDICAL LAB TECHNOLOGIST (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 25, 2018
As a medical and educational facility there are ample amounts of unique clinical situations that you don't see at smaller hospitals and clinics. This is a great opportunity to learn and be exposed to different situations to challenge the fresh-graduate however due to the nature of some very deep-seated and fundamental problems from management (top-down), many employees become frustrated with the lack of appreciation or possibility to advance. Many managers are complacent with poor work and do not try to motivate or encourage employees to do better and conversely do not reward hard work from those going above and beyond. Raises are not in the future for many as the hospital is dealing with a very public deficit.
Poor management, lack of advancement and poor morale
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 25, 2018
African American Employees were not treated fairly and were not recommended for raises or promotions. The management in the department where I worked was very disrespectful and most of the time hardly ever speak to you.

Nurse Project Manager (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 20, 2018
UAMS hires many nurses who are there either for the educational opportunities or the retirement benefits. This makes the staffing levels precarious at times, and the overall educational status of the staff unbalanced-lots of new nurses or nurses ready to retire, with a smaller distribution between those extremes.

Uams offers multiple opportunities to advance in both career and education. It is one of the fastest growing trauma hospitals in the state of Arkansas. The hardest thing about this job is Parking. If you're a good worker, can be on time, and enjoy people, Uams is the perfect choice.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Texarkana, AR – April 5, 2018
A great place to start out but its no room for advancement and a lot of favoritism. Great benefits and some of the HR and supervisions is great. They do show lots of love on holidays and special days for you.
Procurement Specialist (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 4, 2018
After sixteen years at UAMS, I am ready to retire and find a job close to home. I have enjoyed my years here, very much. I have been allowed to learn new skills and help co-workers and patients everyday.
