Productive workplace and wonderful employees but can be stressful depending on the department.
Survey Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYNovember 7, 2018
The department I worked for was very productive the Research it contributed to the University and the State as a whole and I enjoyed doing that. The University offered some of the best benefits to its employees than most local businesses couldn't match or surpass. The Univerdity has some of the best employees and the relationship between departments is well-coordinated and efficient. Generally, a good work environment. However, the opportunity for employees to advance and move up the hierarchy takes too long or is almost nonexistent. The same goes for payraises. Whenever there are payraises they are so minute to even recognize the effect.
Pros
Benefits with 401k matching.
Cons
Job culture was very stressful with little room of moving up the hierarchy, no significant pay raises.

Patient Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYOctober 11, 2018
As with other hospitals, there seems to be a shortage of staff throughout the units. The University of Kentucky has a 5 Core Values they live by which are diversity, innovation, respect, compassion, and teamwork. Out of the five values, teamwork seems to be the hardest to accomplish. This may be due to some communication problems that can occur due to lost translation from managers to staff.
Pros
Great Retirement package/ Medical Benefits are great
Cons
Communication, Taking away Tuition reimbursement for all other KY schools except UK.

Most Difficult Job Ever

Working at the university was rewarding because of the patients and dental providers. Most co-workers were a pleasure to work with while others were impossible. Management was not able to resolve continuous situations that occurred resulting in myself leaving and multiple others followed, even the clinic manager.
