Pros

One of the best reasons to work at Planned Parenthood would have to be the flexibility given to employees to maintain work / life balance. The leadership of the organization can empathize with its employees needing to take time to address personal matters by adjusting your schedule accordingly.

Cons

There is a lack of coaching to assist those in junior level positions to move upward through the organization. Many employees have been there for a number of years, which may prohibit the continuation of one moving up the responsibility ladder.

Advice to Management

Leadership should provide more career development opportunities to those who are not middle management. Perhaps this could be done on a quarterly basis.

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

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

    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.
