    Pros

    Great learning experience, other employees are passionate and really care a lot about what they do

    Cons

    Depending on what you do, you might have to be flexible with your hours, especially doing outreach. Obviously as an intern you don't get paid, but that is expected.

    Planned Parenthood is a good place to work if you are passionate about family planning and reproductive health care.

    Pros

    The company is well-organized, there are opportunities to move between departments and it's generally a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    It's a huge organization and can be a bit corporate at times. There was an issue with one of the Senior Staff members in my department that was making the entire team unhappy and that staff member was finally let go once the VP who supervised her retired and a new VP was hired.

  3. Good mission and work environment

    Pros

    Amazing mission, passionate people, benefits

    Cons

    Culture of fear, trickle down management, non-competitive pay, treat employees as a liability rather than asset

    Advice to Management

    Actually practice an Open Door policy, as advertised, not use openness as an opportunity to put an X on someone's back. Offer competitive pay, especially for RHAs.
