    Pros

    Infinite opportunities for real go getters.

    Cons

    Update technology to enhance communication. Staff still using pagers.

    Advice to Management

    Work a half day with your employees every week.

    Pros

    Reputable organization, good organizational culture, employee recognition (verbal praise/small tokens of appreciation)

    Cons

    If you are in a lower level position, raises are minimal. Your best bet for growth is to just apply for another position entirely. Was told during the interview process that I would be benefitted; after being hired it became a "maybe". In the end it never happened.

    Advice to Management

    A 1% increase in hourly wages is not something worth getting an employee who is expecting a real raise excited about...especially when this employee has worked very hard for your company.

    I worked at UAB Medicine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    UAB offers a great environment to work in. I worked at the Kirklin Clinic specifically. Everyone worked together and was always looking for a better way to communicate with each other. The insurance options are great as well as the tuition reimbursement program. They really encourage their employees to always work to better their education. There were free training classes offered to employees as well. Along the employee health and wellness program that included free yoga classes and 12 free mental health visits a year.

    Cons

    Parking is an ordeal. Most places offer commuter lots and a (fast) bus system to take you to work, some other departments have parking decks where you can get a monthly pass for a discounted rate.

    Pros

    Team work. Family. I worked nearly my entire 20 years in either the Emergency Department or PACU or Pre-Op. Loved the team work in those areas.

    No cons. There. Is that five words?

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at UAB Medicine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The staff work hard together. Nurses caring and knowledgeable. World class medical center. Very interesting patient mix with opportunities to continue learning.

    Cons

    Poor Management at the top. Has set themselves against staff who work for them. Make snap judgments when it comes to staff instead of listening first to all points of view. Often expectations are unclear. Communication is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume your staff are lazy and not doing their jobs. Try working with us once in a while. For the most part your staff are caring and hard working under sometimes impossible situations.
