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

Pros

Planned Parenthood is doing some of the most important work in the country. Politically, it's an outstandingly positive force. The community of employees is incredibly close, warm, and supportive. Also, you often get free condoms/materials depending on your department.

Cons

I can't think of much except that occasionally, you'll get a negative response when you tell someone you work at PP.

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of interesting people, by way of your patients. Some of very trying, but many will touch your heart. If you believe in the mission, you feel good about helping.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, mean-spirited coworkers and supervisors. Favoritism is rampant. The people who stay do so because they are unqualified to work anywhere else and the make the same amount of money. The patient load is incredibly high. Long hours some weeks, short hours others. Little to no career mobility. Vast disconnect between management & PR versus the assistants, nurses and doctors who actually do the work. One of the most depressing places I have ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Affordable healthcare, please. It's disheartening to make $13/hour, pay over $100/mo for health insurance, and have it cover very little. Career mobility.

    There is no management "team". PPMM is run solely by the CEO who allows no dissenting opinions.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very committed, long-term, on the ground staff who go above and beyond to fulfill the mission of making every family a healthy family. The benefit the organization provides to the community is outstanding and undisputed.

    Cons

    The org is chronically understaffed, there is horrific staff moral, and bad seeds are allowed to remain. (Some of whom sit on management team.) If you have a family, and you are trying to work your way up, regardless of how much you produce, don't expect it to be flexible without punitive action. HR cannot address concerns even with proof of a hostile workplace; everything stops with the CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your management team reflective of where the organization needs to be in 10 years--Promote a competent staffer under 50 (of which there are many) and groom them for leadership and succession. Ensure the Board sees the accurate financial picture and address the discrepancies between the organization's mission to its clients and ensure it includes staff.
