    Pros

    Passionate staff, incredible mission. Really fun work environment with people who are willing to truly help you expand your experience and grow towards your career goals.

    Cons

    The pay was low, particularly for New York City, but that's expected in nonprofit - and it was worth it for the resume boost and great experience.

    Advice to Management

    I would have enjoyed more opportunities to mingle with other departments and see the work done all over. Really enjoyed the staff fundraisers for affiliates - it was really great to be reminded that everyone really does care about the health care happening at our health centers.

    Pros

    I worked for the Southern New England affiliate. It's a great working environment with committed, dedicated employees. Leadership is really committed to continuous improvement and ensuring that both patients and employees are happy. They are also very respectful of work/life balance and encourage employees to take and enjoy their evenings and weekends. Plenty of opportunities to grow and advance. Would strongly recommend.

    Cons

    While decent for a nonprofit of its size, the pay could be a little better. Otherwise no significant complaints -- really a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing -- this is a great nonprofit to work for. I enjoyed my time there and hope the organization continues to thrive.

    Pros

    Everyone made me feel as if I was a colleague! I was asked to help with assignments and task that helped me broaden my skill set and straighten my knowledge in my field. I truly learned how to perform in an organization affectively.

    Cons

    The only down fall was how busty everyone can be at times. Although it is a great place to work, many people have many jobs which makes their time limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advocate for womens health!!!

    Pros

    Great place to work with other people who are passionate about the cause. Traditional nonprofit environment, from what I could tell.

    Cons

    Like many nonprofits, the organization often faced economic troubles that were stressful for staff. Overall you know what you're getting into, and the people who work there really care about the people they serve.

    Advice to Management

    Nonprofit work isn't for everyone, but those who are willing to give so much for so little should be appreciated. Overall, this is the case at Planned Parenthood.
