    Pros

    I had a great experience at UAB. It is a magnet hospital, so I felt like things were automatically done the right way. Plenty of residents and doctors nearby willing and ready to help. All the supplies and technology are at hand so that you can readily and easily take care of your patient. The last unit I worked on came by and asked me every month what was working and not working for me and any people I would like to recognize. I thought that was great. There are also many departments within UAB for a wide variety of job choices. Lower pay than some hospitals.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive. Sometimes they require you to be on committees, etc which is hard for people like me who simply want to work hard and go home. I felt pressured to be involved as if there were consequences if I didn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Try to take more time to listen to the people actually working on the floor day to day on how to improve the hospital. Often I felt the people in the office were making the decisions without understanding the implications they caused on the floors.

    Pros

    A level 1 trauma center on the bleeding edge of Medicine. A true grind house for the newly minted doctors, nurses, and other healthcare staff. You will never see this level trauma or learn more about healthcare anywhere else. Hard work is recognized as well as your level of expertise. tight nit crews who are open and inviting.

    Cons

    Management who is out of the loop; popping in to excerpt their authority without a complete grasp of the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement is not required with the level of professional people in this environment.

    Low pay for the amount of work done. Recruitment takes a long time as one tends to get frustrated while waiting. Good thing is at least they send an email notifying you that the position has been filled

    Pros

    UAB is a great hospital and highly respected. My experience here is undeniably irreplaceable. Lots of opportunity to become involved with the politics of the hospital. Several nursing programs within the hospital such as the Nursing Congress, Professional Nursing Development Program and BSN Residency Program. The ability to sign up to work on different units through self scheduling. Scheduling is very flexible. Tuition reimbursement!

    Cons

    UAB requires nurses to have BSNs which is a good thing but they dont pay well enough. They should at least pay the difference in comparison to ADNs. Parking is the pits!
