    I have been working at Pottstown Hospital full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Now that you are nonprofit, use the surplus money to give out a big raise. Or let the employees participate in profit sharing. Staff could use newer equipment in some areas.

    I have been working at Pottstown Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, For the most part everyone is friendly Sometimes they'll do little thing to try and boost up staff morale.

    Cons

    Always understaffed to the point where it poses potential danger
    Give you 6 days a year for sick but if you call out sick 4 times your written up
    Definitely show favoritism to who they like

    Advice to Management

    Instead of enforcing BS punishment and restricts, you should figure out why no one of substance wants to stay and work for you.

    Pros

    Union hospital. You'll be happy there if you get on the management's good side. If not, you will be as miserable as them.

    Cons

    Unfair management, miserable HR department. They take you fighting for what you believe in/your career as "over stepping boundaries" and "inappropriate". I'll work somewhere that my dedication and hard work are appreciated and valued. Pay for off-site workers is FAR below national standards.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more fair to employees wishing to advance their careers, especially if they aren't union. Just because someone who is not union is looking to advance their career does not mean you should go and offer advancement to union members first. If they didn't take the initiative in the first place, then that's their own fault. HR could also be a lot more pleasant to deal with. Overall, treat employees fairly or you will be losing all the good workers!
