    Pros

    UAB is a large company that seems to attract national attention in its many endeavorers. Everyone in the state of Alabama is familiar with UAB and there is a variety of positions available.

    Cons

    While it is good to work for a large company, it also has its down sides. You are just a number when it comes to top management. Though, I never had any issues with this.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    good benefits health & retirement plan (TIAA/CREF 403(b) program on an matched tax sheltered basis up to 5%)
    low living cost compared to others
    possibility of internal promotion to a research assistant professor seems higher than others
    friendly & courteous Southerners

    Cons

    location location location
    It seems a little sluggish in how things are run here but possibly because it's the South?
    Low salary (seems alot of labs here pay below NIH miniumun)-but discontent with postdoc salary is pretty prevalant everywhere

    Advice to Management

    I have seen much improvement in the career enhancement opportunities for postdoctoral fellows over the years (e.g., seminar series) but I also think there should be more opportunities for meetings/compentative awards and I wish meetings like "Industry Round Table" which introduced different job opportunities were more active.
