    I worked at Planned Parenthood

    Pros

    Great learning experience, other employees are passionate and really care a lot about what they do

    Cons

    Depending on what you do, you might have to be flexible with your hours, especially doing outreach. Obviously as an intern you don't get paid, but that is expected.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company is well-organized, there are opportunities to move between departments and it's generally a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    It's a huge organization and can be a bit corporate at times. There was an issue with one of the Senior Staff members in my department that was making the entire team unhappy and that staff member was finally let go once the VP who supervised her retired and a new VP was hired.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a team illuminates shared experiences and room for improvement.

    Cons

    I was told each canvasser would receive a pay raise to $18 an hour on election day, only to later find out there weren't funds for such.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Openness with with employees goes a long way. Express expectations and when they are not being met.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love what the organization stands for. Getting to work with them to try to and stop dangerous legislation was a very rewarding experience. Everyone you work with shares the same values so I think it makes for a very productive atmosphere.

    Cons

    I was hired seasonally to work on advocacy. I wish that the organization would invest in someone full-time to do this, even if it is not me, as I feel that having a presence in the community is crucial to the cause. Invest in the employees that are invested in the goals.
