    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.

    Cons

    No cons. There. Is that five words?

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    There are some very good people working at UAB. They keep the organization functioning in spite of Upper-level management.

    Cons

    On one can make a decision. No leadership at the top, no guidance is given, so no one wants to make a decision. There seem to be a lot of little power struggles within small domains of influence. Crisis management. If you make the wrong person mad or expose issues (security) that make someone else look bad you will be the one that gets fired.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair or Quit

    Pros

    The patients were the best part.

    Cons

    Management made up their own rules and showed favoritism. It felt like high school.


  9. Great for older folks...not so great for younger (unless you're here for the free tuition)!

    Pros

    Great health and tuition benefits. This is really THE reason to work here! But if you have a spouse that has good health and tuition (if you need it) benefits from their job you can probably be happier elsewhere...

    Cons

    Salary - very stingy with raises for the worker bees. Parking - expensive and long waiting list to get into the close decks, but fortunately remote parking has greatly improved over the years. Lots of cliques so difficult to get ahead/promotions without brown nosing. They don't seem to take many chances on folks in their 30's, I've interviewed for transfer positions and almost always see that they ended up hiring someone age 50+; great for them (no age discrimination) but not so great for younger folks looking to make changes in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is wonderful - keep up the good work! But pull aside the "low men on the totem pole" and ask if the people they report to (your lower management) reflect the core values; most often they do not.


  10. Constantly changing policies. Very unsteady management in medical division.

    I worked at UAB Medicine

    Pros

    I was given an opportunity for an in person training sessions.

    Cons

    I did seem to get enough feedback about what they were happy or dislike about my performance. It felt like if you did not perform at %110 from day one, it was like you were the pedestal to be eliminated from that job. Also, the communication from the various departments was hard, since everyone felt like an island and was unwilling to give out the information.
