I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Meaningful work. Fun, dedicated co-workers. Feeling like you make a difference. Lots of opportunities to learn. Good benefits.

Cons

Disconnect between higher-ups and those on the ground regarding how to improve service (read: scheduling). Pay is not livable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I love this job, and appreciate that our contributions are valued in an emotional sense. But it would be great if that could be translated into a financial investment in employees, as far as hourly wage.

    Pros

    Most management is very cool.
    You can do almost whatever you want at your desk.
    Co-workers are a lot of fun.
    You feel good for helping people out all day.

    Cons

    Large divide between people who work in the clinics and think they're better than everyone else and the people in the call center.
    Sometimes you feel like just a number to the upper management.
    Computer use is very very closely monitored, don't ever check your facebook at work :P

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the mostly good work!

    Pros

    There is a well-defined scope of practice dictated by written protocols.
    Good pay/benefits.
    Fairly good orientation for new medical staff.

    Cons

    The management is HORRIBLE!!!!!
    Clinic managers are hardly ever in their office. It is not helpful for managers to be working from home or at off-site business meetings all the time. They should be working on the floor, managing.

    No one cares about your outside life. They will over-schedule as many patients as they need to get their numbers for the week. They don't care if you stay late 1-2 hours every day, or get screamed at because patients are waiting for 3-4 hours out front. You get questioned for staying late to see all the patients and finish your work, but if you don't stay until every single patient is seen then you get yelled at.

    Your opinion doesn't matter. You get the impression it might when you have long business meetings and management appears to be taking notes on your suggestions, but nothing ever changes. They do not come up with logical solutions to problems. And if you suggest one, they will come up with a different one just so they can use their own ideas.

    They waste so much money on administrative traveling, director lunches, unnecessary commuting, yet they're quick to fire employees to make budget cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are killing the very planned parenthood mission you pretend to stand for.
    All employees should be treated with respect. If you rewarded your good employees you wouldn't have such high turnover.
    It's sad they will never get it!!! And the patients and hard-working employees are the ones at suffer.
