Though Umbridge is portrayed as a sadist, and many fans despise her for her actions in the series, I never hear many people complain about Filch. In my opinion, he was just as sadistic, and delightedly carried out harsh punishments during Umbridge's regime at Hogwarts. I would not call these two characters pure evil, nor would I say that Umbridge was worse than Filch, but they are the common, everyday workers who look for ways to rise up in society. They are a very human evil while Voldemort is an inhuman evil. I don't think Umbridge can be compared to Voldemort in terms of "evil" because Umbridge is still human, while Voldemort is not.
