    I worked at University of Alabama at Birmingham full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are unbeatable in Alabama; compensation seems a little lower than private-sector due to the better benefits (among certain positions). Competent leadership

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough mid-level workers, so senior management can sometimes be disconnected from employee morale and other employee concerns. Overall positive work experience until an inexperienced administrator took on department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing more orientation and ongoing systems training to users of EMR/EHR, Medical Billing Systems, and Insurance would help patients and help employees do their jobs better.
