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!

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.

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

Suggestions for improvement

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

What I like about the company

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

What I dislike about the company

Do not like their tolerating bad behavior by supervisory personnel

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

What I like about the company

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

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of everything. The company is a sham

What I like about the company

When I started, I was welcomed by an energetic team. Got lots of hands on training. Honest coworkers. Help when it was asked for. A plethora of resources for new employees.

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.

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.

Teamwork

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

Freedom to work independently

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

Internal Communication

I have experienced strong communications and appropriate updates .

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.

Overall compensation for your work

UMA pays well for top talent!

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.

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!!!

Work-Life Balance

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

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.

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.

Workplace Safety

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

Challenging Work

Its not easy. Bring your A game.

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.

Suggestions for improvement

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

What I like about the company

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 about the company

We need more bathrooms at MLK.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think that the company should not only offer PTO, but also offer Sick time separately so employees do not have to use all their PTO and then not have the chance for a vacation. I also believe that the medical benefits should provide more for the employees since even with the highest premium choice, the out-of-pocket cost is still a lot to pay. The 401(k) should also include matching rather than just 5%.

What I like about the company

The company participates in events to help raise money/awareness of illnesses as well as hold events yearly for all employees to mingle and enjoy each others' company.

What I dislike about the company

Human resources is constantly rotating employees and does not seem to always be aware of the company information. Also, the management whom make the decisions on who to promote do not make decisions based on knowledge and skills, but rather social ability.
