Mediocre place to work. Really Depends on what department you're employed in.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) (Current Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, ALOctober 4, 2017
As a graduate student working as a graduate teaching assistant for the University of Alabama, there aren't very many perks. Graduate teaching assistants are usually overworked and do not receive great benefits. There is no vacation allowance, as it all depends on the department you're a teaching assistant in. Overall, it isn't the greatest school to work at as a graduate assistant. However, that could be attributed to the fact that graduate students are generally treated as servants no matter what university they are at.

Poor coordination between departments.
Full-time Teaching Instructor (Former Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, ALSeptember 28, 2017
If you are fine maintaining the status quo great, don't try and do anything new. Most of the people mean well, but administration at all levels leaves a lot to be desired.

Summary
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, ALSeptember 11, 2017
Not a bad school to work for. Faculty are helpful. Students aren't bad. Adjunct pay is adjunct pay. Tough to balance with a full-time job. Relocated or would have kept teaching.

UAB is a good place to work.
Information Systems Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALAugust 28, 2017
UAB is a good place to work. Being the largest employer, there is some variability in how you are treated--pressure, micro-managing, and hectic schedule.
Being the largest employer, they pick and choose their candidates, based on the best experience for the absolute lowest cost. They will sacrifice quality for cost. My advice on taking a job there is to negotiate the best salary you can get, up front. The most you will see in raises are COLAs, unless you are consistently exceptional at what you do, and they really don't want to lose you.
My 25 years with UAB was spent with good bosses, however, and was overall a pleasant place to work. I was reclassified to a higher grade and title twice, and did quite well for myself. I left because I could retire from the Teacher's Retirement System, and still pursue other opportunities.

The GA positions at UA are incredible- I get tuition and a monthly stipend, plus work experience! I would recommend any graduate program at UA especially if you find a GA position.
