No opinion of CEO

I worked at Planned Parenthood part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Learn to deal with people. Patience is exercised. Workers are nice.

Cons

8 hour shift standing outside. The office is hard to get to.

Advice to Management

Give more reasonable work days. You say part time but to do that you have to literally dedicate every weekend and can't work half days and that is hard to do. Not only that your office is in a bad neighborhood and is hard to get to if you don't have a car.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High turnover in senior management with some bad hires they had to terminate. The CEO is great and the mission is worth supporting.

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere. There was a lot of gossip, especially on the management team. Too high a reliance on contractors and it takes a long time to get hired.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard to find - the mission.

    Cons

    Be careful as you're researching whether or not to join this organization. There are 73 comments here and growing - from some you would think it is the best place to work, from others not so much. That's because these comments are from varying levels of employee and lump all affiliates and the federation as one organization - it isn't - not by a very long shot. Working in a leadership position at an Affiliate depends on the quality of leadership at the affiliate - which is a mixed bag at best. The National Office is another story with little to no responsible financial management (waste is staggering), in fighting, back stabbing, utter confusion at the "executive" level (and that includes Cecile Richards-culture trickles from her office). Incredibly negative culture - no rhyme or reason - horrific stories too numerous to mention. Just recognize the positive comments here are from interns and admin staff OR from a former employee who was lucky enough to work for an Affiliate with principled management at the top - mid-management at the National office is stressed unhappy and frightened - Sr. Management leaving in droves and the 4 C-levels continue rolling along blindly. It's a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Replace C-Levels, get business people on the Board who are not dazzled by Cecile (who is dazzling and a great Face for the organization but a thoroughly overwhelmed administrator) and are willing to ask the very tough questions desperately needing to be asked (starting with "what's with the executive/management attrition? It's a revolving door!")
