Great place to work with great benefits. BUT pay could be better
Information Systems Specialist I (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALAugust 12, 2015
UAB is a great place to advance your career in Information Technology and Information Systems. They have a very broad selection of different hardware and software models and the projects are very intensive. Yet, for the job you preform you could go into the private sector and make about 30,000-40,000 more a year for the same job. You will be paid well but not as well if you weren't considered a state employee. Job stability,security, and flexibility is stellar. Benefits are VERY good as well. Low insurance rates, the ability to go to college all the way up to a Doctorate for free, and your spouse and child can go for 50% off. The only issue I have is the pay.

Fired for having cancer
CLINICAL TRIALS SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALAugust 8, 2015
Pros: It paid the bills for a while. The cafeteria has some of the best desserts in Birmingham
Cons: parking, mandatory high retirement contribution, very uncaring management
I worked in the Cancer Center, was diagnosed with cancer, and got fired because I was, "taking too many doctor's appointments." 10% of your salary is taken out of each check for the mandatory state retirement plan (not the case for hospital employees - only University employees have to pay that). Currently, UAB is broke. I would never work there again. Thankfully, I'm in remission.

Biggest Composites Manufacture and Testing Center
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALJune 25, 2015
The best part of working experiences in the Materials Processing and Application Development Center is to gain a lot of hands on experience in composite processing and application development.
The fun part is that you have the chance to transfer the lab-scale achievements to industry-scale profitable commercial products.The challenge part is that you should have the talent to find the balance point between performance and cost. Since the engineer's job is to solve the practical problems, you need figure out the best economic solutions for the customers.
