To manage a user profile, you must have *SECADM special authority and *USE and *OBJMGT authorities to the profile. When you create a user yourself, you will be the owner and, by default, will have *ALL authority to the profile. When someone else has created the profiles, the authority you will have to the profile will come from *PUBLIC, which, by default, is *EXCLUDE. To see the other profiles, someone will have to either change the ownership over to you or grant you *USE and *OBJMGT authorities to each profile.
