    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.

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

    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.

    Former Employee - Nurse Practitioner

    I worked at Planned Parenthood

    Pros

    As an NP, a chance to work with underserved populations, a sense o service. The reason I stayed for 30 + years. My patients were so grateful for the care I gave them.

    Cons

    Upper Clinical management is toxic! They have no respect for NPs as professionals. They routinely deny lunch breaks. They tell NPs to do things we know are unethical and investigate us if we don't. It's why, with a heavy heart I resigned in October.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to maintain your family planning services, start treating your clinic staff better! Read your own mission statement! Treat the women who work for you with the Care No Matter What philosophy.
