Former Employee - Public Affairs Manager

I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You will wake up every day feeling like you are making a difference. Your colleagues care about the mission of the organization. The organization has reach across the U.S. and the world to tap into. You can work for PP in almost every state across the U.S., as they have a large affiliate network.

Cons

Depending on the size of the affiliate, there may be little room for advancement within your department. In the public affairs and political action departments, the work hours are long and include evenings and weekends along with travel.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Great mission
    - Opportunities to work on both non-profit and advocacy

    Cons

    - Disorganization beyond belief
    - Catty girls club
    - Socialization between employees and their superiors is not professional
    - Shady hiring practices
    - No talking between departments
    - Employees have been in their positions forever with no actual output
    - Wasteful with funds
    - Pathetic IT support
    - Poor treatment and respect of affiliates
    - Too many contractors!! Stop hiring like crazy when you outsource some of the most important work at an expensive fee!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Treat the people who have actual output of work product well
    - Hire efficient people who have a proven output of work and aren't there solely because they care about the mission
    - Just because someone has been in their position forever doesn't mean that they are actually good at it
    - Get organized and departments working with one another
    - Run more like a business in DC and New York offices and less like a non-profit

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
