    I worked at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fabulous co-workers, great training, and a real sense of community. I would gladly work here again. I learned how to work well under pressure and less than ideal circumstances (making decisions with very ill people in front of you).

    Cons

    No major cons. As working in any hospital you may come in contact with germs more often but that's to be expected.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Pottstown, PA
    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Pottstown, PA

    I worked at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Non-nurses were very friendly and great to work with (support staff, unit clerks, housekeeping, etc). Doctors were very knowledgeable and approachable.

    Cons

    I worked as a nurse and the nurses are VERY clicky. If you're not part of the "in" crowd, you're quickly ostracized. After my orientation, I did NOT have any kind of mentor, and when I asked questions, I was made to feel dumb. So I stopped asking questions and my shift supervisor would simply critique me and talk at me instead of encourage me or help me. It was very demeaning. I was told to resign or be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurses need to learn to work together. It should be about patient care, not a competition to see who's popular.
