What I like

Pay scale

What I dislike

This is one of the most racist places to work in Tampa, Florida on Martin Luther King Blvd. At least 98% of the managers and directors are white so don’t you think about moving up the career ladder with this company.
There are managers that do not have a college degree and yet they are making the big bucks because they are all friends. Look at Jonathan Reynolds he didn’t have a college degree when he started but yet his friend gave him a job as a manager in the finance division. Look at old man Ken, he is always hitting on the young pretty girls, this man is a real- life sexual harassment machine but he is a manager and no one has written him up or fired him.
Ultimate Medical Academy is always hiring because they are always firing. I believe they get some type of monetary incentive to hire minorities and keep minorities hired for a certain period of time and when that time has elapsed, they fire the minority employee. They will write you up for anything and once you get written up you can’t transfer to another division in the company for six months. During that six months they will find something else to write you up for again until they push you out the door or fire you.

They need to hire more people of color in management.

Company Culture

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is what this company needs in terms of management. This is a plantation;managers are white and workers are people of color.

Job Security

They will fire you quickly especially if you work in Career Services.

Freedom to work independently

You will be monitored closely. It's like you have a chain ball that attaches you to your desk and computer so you can't venture out for too long. This means make your bathroom trips quick and short.

Former FreelancerWorked at Ultimate medical Academy in Tampa, FL.

What I like

You help some people achieve their ever longing goal to achieve their degree. You job is to motivate that person through all the discouragement and distractions to keep pushing and strive through it all

What I dislike

The company is a rolling door. They mass hire and mass fire. They give their employees 90 days to learn materials and achieve monthly goals, once after 90 day period you are still expected to maintain that goal no slip ups or fired

Suggestions for improvement

My improvement would be training and keeping my employees longer. instead of mass hiring actually take the time out to get to know the candidates and don't just hire anybody

Former EmployeeWorked at Ultimate medical Academy in Tampa, FL.

What I like

Nice place to work, professional people and there is always the desire to support employees

What I dislike

Do not like their tolerating bad behavior by supervisory personnel

Suggestions for improvement

UMA executives must pay more attention to not tolerating bad behavior from supervisory personnel.

Work-Life Balance

UMA's workload can consume you if you allow it to. Make sure that you set finite boundaries with your supervisors to ensure you have a life outside of UMA

Overall compensation for your work

UMA has a tendency to pile on more workload without appropriate compensation. Make sure you negotiate your rates before taking on more responsibility or work.

Support from management

Sometimes middle managers are reluctant to grant your reasonable requests. If this is the case, make sure you speak with their manager(s). Don't be shy!

What I like

There were none. This company is a bad company which urges employees to lie.

What I dislike

I disapprove of everything. The company is a sham

Suggestions for improvement

The only way to make the company better would be to shut the place down. They are a scam

EmployeeWorked in Human resources/recruiting at Ultimate Medical Academy - Tampa in Tampa, FL at the time of review.

What I like

I enjoy the challenge and teamwork. I find that people have been very authentic and welcoming since starting a few months ago.

What I dislike

We need more bathrooms at MLK.

Suggestions for improvement

UMA needs to tell their story on what we do...….we get our graduate students real jobs.

Company Culture

The culture at UMA is that the work we do, no matter how small affects student outcomes....mainly getting graduates real jobs. Like any successful employee, its up to you as a new colleague to embrace the organization and develop meaningful relationships.

Company Image

I had heard that turnover was an issue when reading reviews prior to joining UMA. Now having been a colleague for several months, I can see that in most cases employees that show up late, have a bad attitude, and are here just for the wages are usually not successful. I would think that is true with any company though.

Work-Life Balance

There are long hours but, at the end of the day we serve our graduates!

Overall compensation for your work

UMA pays well for top talent!

Inclusive / Diverse

Beyond gender and ethnicity UMA has tremendous diversity from generational diversity (lots of millennials and now Gen Z), as well as Vets, and all diversity groups.

Environmental Friendliness

We have several ponds. I am not a big gator fan but, have only seen 1 in the last 6 months. DON'T FEED THE GATORS!!!

Workplace Safety

There are a number of employee training underway. Also our security team is very friendly.

Teamwork

My team is close. We depend on each other to be successful.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I am not sure if I am an older employee myself, though certainly not early in my career. Honestly hard to comment except that I have not observed any bias at all. We are a mix of everything her at UMA.

Support from management

The team works closely together and has that entrepreneurial feel were you have runway to try new things to move the business forward.

Office / Work Environment

We have 3 locations. Our Clearwater campus is very professional. This is our ground campus. We have two other locations. The one across from the Bucs training facility is Top notch class A office space. Our other location is scheduled for renovations over the next few months.

Challenging Work

Its not easy. Bring your A game.

Job Security

While I have heard mixed things prior to joining UMA, I can say that if you show up on time, work hard, build relationships, and do what you say, there are few things to worry about.

Internal Communication

I have experienced strong communications and appropriate updates .

Freedom to work independently

We are given the opportunity to drive projects and work as an individual but are held accountable for our outcomes.
