University of Alabama At Birmingham experience report

  • 16.Jun 2018
  • Employee

UAB is a good company with good benefits. It is considered the best young university in the USA.

4.33

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would streamline the hiring process. I would eliminate the diversity group. I would find a way to provide low-cost parking.

What I like about the company

We conduct life saving medical research. My bosses give me the flexibility I need to conduct business. My staff is a great group of hard working folks. Our work is challenging. It is nice to work at a large urban university campus.

What I dislike about the company

We have a department of diversity: this embarrasses me. It is sad that a major university feels the need to set up a department devoted to telling it's staff to be nice to each other. Also, the bureaucratic system is very slow when it comes to replacing open jobs. Parking is a nightmare in the whole area.
