    I have been working at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center 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.

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, vacation, self scheduling. Working 3 days a week allows me to have the life I want. Vacation and sick time accrual is fair. Self scheduling allows for time off when you need it without having to take vacation. Helping people everyday can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Compensation could be a bit better. Raises are not based on performance, just cost of living. Lunch breaks are very rare and you are constantly trying to find 5 minutes to eat or take a bathroom break.

    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.

    Pros

    Diversity and many opportunities are present, as there are numerous positions all related to effective and critical health care procedures.

    Cons

    Some opportunities for advancement are only considered based on seniority. This may be a disadvantage for Nursing students/entry-level hospital employees.

    Advice to Management

    To effectively monitor all aspects of the fiscal budget to avoid any unforeseen events, as well as prevent staffing cuts and annual operational hurdles.
