Former Employee - Specialist in Washington, DC
Former Employee - Specialist in Washington, DC

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

    Former Employee - Paralegal in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great: hardworking, polite, professional.

    Cons

    The work was primarily administrative, and they were still using mostly paper files. I believe they adjusted the title and job description after I left to reflect this though, and they were moving toward digitization as well. Also, there was no way to grow in that position, so it's meant for people who are passing through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover could be decreased in part by creating clear goals at the start of the employees tenure and showing how an employee could grow within the company.
