    I have been working at Pottstown Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The work environment is very professional. The benefits are above average and everyone believes in putting the patient first. Many of the problematic staff were terminated when tower took over. The 403b has many decent options. Generous time off.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Turnover is bad because of the pay.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pottstown Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I can only speak for the department in which I work (acute psych), but my director is extremely flexible with time off and he believes in me getting the job done (isn't a micro-manager). Compared to other companies, the benefits are good in regards to compensation, 403B, etc.

    Cons

    Since Tower Health has taken over Pottstown, our medical coverage has changed and it seems as if we are paying MORE and MORE out of pocket. Our time off has also dwindled and Tower Health is trying their best to cover it up! In terms of the acute psychiatric unit, the cons are extensive. The pace is EXTREMELY fast, the physicians are not team oriented and do not take the front line staff's reports into consideration, some disciplines are favored over others, supervision is not present on the unit, which allows for a hostile environment from senior staff or more assertive/strong personalitied staff to strong arm the others. The culture is toxic! Management does nothing to investigate the situation.

    The treat the patients very well, especially the nursing staff. The direct patient care RN's are very friendly with the patients and extremely competent.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best. Many policies on benefits are not clear. Work done online is very confusing; lots of different passwords and usernames to remember. Computers are also slow as a turtle.
