    I have been working at Planned Parenthood

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities and so many departments -- plus a network of affiliates across the country -- that there are great opportunities for job growth.

    Cons

    Working for Planned Parenthood is not for the meek since there are so many people who mis-represent the organization's mission and work.

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Passionate leadership, competitive salary, fulfilling work. Company provides tons of paid time off, and recognizes young talent. Company is progressive and very politically correct. High moral values, a very great place that will accept you for who you are. Strong women run the show at Planned Parenthood!

    Cons

    It is a non-profit, so pay is not exactly the highest! You have to really go above and beyond to get a raise, and jobs can be at risk due to budget cuts.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a job where you won't just be another employee but more of a valuable team member this is the place to be. I have never worked for an organization with so dedication to you as a person. They teach you so much and involve you with everything. I have meet and spoke with the CEO, COO, Etc. so many times. What organization/company can you say you worked for and get to know the CEO or other higher position individual and say that you have meet them on several occasions? Very few right. PPPSGV is an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    The pay suckssssssssss. It's sad but true. The only downfall for such an amazing organization.

    Pros

    Team members who share similar beliefs and values, great hours

    Cons

    For me, dealing with the stigma has been the biggest issue. Trying to figure out who I should tell and keeping myself safe is a balance I'm still working on. Also, regular protestors are annoying.
