    Pros

    Good working environment. Very large company with great growth opportunities. Very diverse. One of the greatest hospital and university in the state.

    Cons

    Parking is too expensive and there is limited parking for employees. Benefits are very expensive and health premiums increase yearly. Salaries are lower than other companies in the industry. Raises are rarely given due to budget cuts. This company is large enough to budget for at least a cost of living increase for their employees since raises are not given annually.

    Advice to Management

    As for management, there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians. They are over compensated. This company is too large not to allow their employees to conduct annual reviews on their managers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Alabama at Birmingham (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    I was contacted a few days after I completed my application. I interviewed with two people. It only took about 30 minutes. I was asked for a list of references and told there would be a second interview. I never really got a second interview. I was contacted to arrange a time to speak on the phone. I was then told I would be contacted again soon. I never heard anything back. I later received an automatic email saying another candidate was selected.
