RN, BSN (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – January 5, 2019
My typical day is on the phone all day long with patients. I work 8 hours a day, have weekends and holidays off, benefits are excellent, the health insurance cost is extremely reasonable, I have a good manager who tries to be fair across the board. The most enjoyable part of my job is the hours, vacation and sick time off. There is unlimited opportunities growth and promotions, they pay for you to go back to school and further your education as well as your kids. Best nursing job I have ever had. I plan to retire here at UAB.
Education assistance for employee and family, vacation, sick time
IT Technician (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 30, 2018
I worked as a technician for UAB for a short-time...It would be a decent place if the HSIS department management was more caring for the employees even the small entry-level guys. They don't care about working with the new guys, they care too much about the veteran technicians over getting the new technicians up to speed. If you did something wrong, they won't bother giving you advice on how to do your job better the way they want you to...they'll terminate you without warning.
Invites to parties...What else is there to say!
Underpaid, Poor management, and everything else about the culture of UAB
I retired from UAB but the salary was'nt give fairly

ADMISSSIONS COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 20, 2018
I had the best co-workers and manager you could ask for. Unfortunately, and by no choice of my manager, the department I worked for decided they wanted to start working weekends and that was not something I could do and we did not have to option of not working on the weekends.
Unique position that definitely set me up for success. I believe it made me a much more lucrative candidate.
Operating Room Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 5, 2018
UAB Neurosurgery at Greystone is like a second family for me. The office dynamic was better than anyone could ask for. It set me apart from other APPs by training me to read and interpret all imaging so that I could run the first Neurosurgery Specialty Clinic on my own. My patients were solely mine, establiahed and long term follow ups.
Compatible co workers, volume daily of patients, efficiency
Electronics constantly glitching or running too slow
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 3, 2018
I think UAB is a good place to work. I have learned so much working there. It pretty much depends on the unit, management or leadership ability to address problems, communication and co-workers. The culture/teamwork on some of the units are great, but not on all.
Educational Assistance and some co-workers
Management and co-workers depending on the unit & pay
Environmental Services/Unit Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – October 28, 2018
