    I worked at Planned Parenthood for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No one does what PP does. If you care passionately about reproductive justice and women's rights, then this is a great place for you to learn skills in patient education, basic clinic management, health services, and public policy.

    This review is for the Federation in NYC.

    - good benefits, although the health insurance is expensive, which is ridiculous, because if they would negotiate for all the employees instead of just the National Office they could get decent rates.
    - good work/life balance, as a rule, unless something huge is going on (e.g. defunding fight)
    - people who are very dedicated to women's health. You will meet some amazing people.

    Cons

    - There is much variablility across the system. When looking for reviews, make sure you are learning about your LOCAL PP, not the Federation (National Office), unless you are looking to get a job at the Federation in NYC, DC, or Miami.
    - Unless you went to a specific school and live within NYC, they don't consider you for higher level promotions. Public Affairs runs on people who can't wait to leave to go to law school and that's always where their head is.
    - Communication is terrible.
    - Poor diversity
    - Cattiness and office politics tend to get out of hand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PP needs to have a better way of identifying people with management potential. There is a lot of generational tension between people who have been there forever and newer, younger employees. No one wants to lose the knowledge of people who have worked their way up, but it's demoralizing that there's nowhere to go for younger, ambitious people.
