Exciting fulfilling work but disappointing management throughout.

I worked at Planned Parenthood

Pros

Very nice people
Good working hours and benefits
Extraordinarily rewarding mission and goals
Diverse issues
Good amount of responsibility even at more junior levels

Cons

Upper level mismanagement -- except for CEO -- is surprising
Favoritism in promotions
Irrational hiring and firing, which means that attrition and turnover is demoralizing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The dysfunction flows from the office of the COO downward. If there is change in that office, there is great hope.

    Pros

    This was a good learning experience for me. My next job came really fast, which was very helpful for me. I got to learn a lot about areas where I could improve things so I could take this with me. People were committed to the mission, which made it a nice place to work. I liked the projects I was given, they were really important. I got to update all the employee files, which was a big project that I finished myself.

    Cons

    My group made a lot of mistakes and didn't learn from them which made it hard for us to improve. We made decisions based on friendships and didn't follow rules. This made a lot of people really mad. There seemed to be a lot of dishonesty. Breaking the rules seemed to happen all the time, even if they were new rules. Some people seemed to make up rules. Lots of really good people left while I was there and we were told not to discuss the reasons why and weren't allowed to tell managers to help them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my group, I wish they would have been more honest with people, because the company is really good. People love the mission and most of them love their jobs, and our group could do so much more to make it a good place where people feel supported. I hope they are able to fix some of the challenges soon before things get worse.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great opportunities to advance, You can say at the end of the day that you really helped someone in need.

    Cons

    As with any large organization the little people are the ones that work the hardest and actually know how things are run. But the decisions about how things are run and done come from behind an office door, and from manager that never really step foot in a clinic.
