Productive workplace and wonderful employees but can be stressful depending on the department.
Survey Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – November 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.
Benefits with 401k matching.
Job culture was very stressful with little room of moving up the hierarchy, no significant pay raises.

Accountant PR (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – September 21, 2018
Work hours are usually 7.5 hour days, which allows for work/life balance. Benefits are great and employees may use the gym/pool. There is a hospital on site which is also nice. They do promote from within so there are opportunities for advancement. Employees can go to classes on campus free up to 6 credit hours.
Patient Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – October 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.
Great Retirement package/ Medical Benefits are great
Communication, Taking away Tuition reimbursement for all other KY schools except UK.
Senior Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – August 16, 2018
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.
