    Pros

    The company does really good work. It has full benefits, and they do match for 401K contributions, and they do have a huge holiday party at the end of the year for Orange County and San Bernadino offices only.

    But PP is broken into affiliates, so each one will be vastly different.

    Cons

    Office politics. Pay is not to scale.

    The staff at the health centers provide excellent care with passion and compassion. The education department offers fantastic parent ed programs and a great school curriculum. the advocacy staff know their stuff.

    Cons

    Because the organization is small, there are not a lot of promotional opportunities on the administrative staff.
