    Pros

    I worked for the Southern New England affiliate. It's a great working environment with committed, dedicated employees. Leadership is really committed to continuous improvement and ensuring that both patients and employees are happy. They are also very respectful of work/life balance and encourage employees to take and enjoy their evenings and weekends. Plenty of opportunities to grow and advance. Would strongly recommend.

    Cons

    While decent for a nonprofit of its size, the pay could be a little better. Otherwise no significant complaints -- really a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing -- this is a great nonprofit to work for. I enjoyed my time there and hope the organization continues to thrive.

    Pros

    The company does really good work. It has full benefits, and they do match for 401K contributions, and they do have a huge holiday party at the end of the year for Orange County and San Bernadino offices only.

    But PP is broken into affiliates, so each one will be vastly different.

    Cons

    Office politics. Pay is not to scale.
