    Pros

    none except for the people that I made friends with and worked with closely

    Cons

    the hospital administrators and the lower level management teams have a serious issue with forgetting that they are not in junior high school anymore and literally will bully you till you quit or until they make a bogus report to the nursing board about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get entirely new management,as far as lower middle management, you should require adequate in easily proven proof before a nurse manager is allowed to make you complain to the Nursing Board regarding your license.that was all that had to be done and I never would have had one made against mine. 16 years with no problems until I work for these people.

    I have been working at UAB Medicine full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at UAB Medicine full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
