Suggestions for improvement

  • I would work on the time off policies to ensure it matches sister institutions in the state. Feelings of disparity can arise due to these differences. I would also like to see them work on communications with faculty and staff members with proactive versus reactive communications.

What I like about the company

This is a place which cares about providing its employees with the opportunity to improve and grow. A rapidly growing institution where you have the unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor in many areas and make an impact.

What I dislike about the company

This enterprise is so large that at times communication streams can become muddled.

  • There needs to be more employees to do the job we are supposed to do. We also need help moving ahead and bringing administration to the level it needs to be.

What I like about the company

The flexible hours for myself and coworkers is a great. We are pursuing having some work from home time as well. The institution has a vast amount of health and wellness opportunities for employees. We have access to seminars on health, eating right, exercise, mental health, etc. That is one of the best things about UAB is everything they offer.

What I dislike about the company

I believe the institution should not encourage or even allow employees to work so many hours. I understand salaried employees don't always get just 40 hours a week. However, working 60+ hours every week should not be allowed.

  • Bonuses, free parking! More vacation time. Annual raises and additional weeks of parental paid leave.

What I like about the company

One positive to working there is that there is stability. You don’t have to worry about the institution closing.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the political side. Staff aren’t as important as the faculty and physicians. We are treated like second class citizens in some aspects.
