Worst professional experience of my career

Specialist (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time for less than a 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 Senior Management- 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Friendly culture but did not add much to my learning experience

Intern (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Planned Parenthood as an intern for less than a year


Pros: Friendly staff and management, flexible schedules, standardized, decent training for employees, very liberal but respectful, supervisors don't micro-manage. My supervisors… Cons: A bit disorganized, but it's a non-profit so this should be a given. Also some supervisors aren't as hands on as I'd like, and was… Advice to Senior Management: Give more time to your interns but keep the autonomy Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Good people, dry work

Paralegal (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time for more than a 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… Advice to Senior Management: Turnover could be decreased in part by creating clear goals at the start… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
