Approves of CEO

I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

High turnover in senior management with some bad hires they had to terminate. The CEO is great and the mission is worth supporting.

Cons

Very political atmosphere. There was a lot of gossip, especially on the management team. Too high a reliance on contractors and it takes a long time to get hired.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard to find - the mission.

    Cons

    Be careful as you're researching whether or not to join this organization. There are 73 comments here and growing - from some you would think it is the best place to work, from others not so much. That's because these comments are from varying levels of employee and lump all affiliates and the federation as one organization - it isn't - not by a very long shot. Working in a leadership position at an Affiliate depends on the quality of leadership at the affiliate - which is a mixed bag at best. The National Office is another story with little to no responsible financial management (waste is staggering), in fighting, back stabbing, utter confusion at the "executive" level (and that includes Cecile Richards-culture trickles from her office). Incredibly negative culture - no rhyme or reason - horrific stories too numerous to mention. Just recognize the positive comments here are from interns and admin staff OR from a former employee who was lucky enough to work for an Affiliate with principled management at the top - mid-management at the National office is stressed unhappy and frightened - Sr. Management leaving in droves and the 4 C-levels continue rolling along blindly. It's a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Replace C-Levels, get business people on the Board who are not dazzled by Cecile (who is dazzling and a great Face for the organization but a thoroughly overwhelmed administrator) and are willing to ask the very tough questions desperately needing to be asked (starting with "what's with the executive/management attrition? It's a revolving door!")

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

    Pros

    None. I was very excited to join this organization coming from another sector and to be close to home. I quickly realized that The CFO as well as the President of the company were completely unethical and incompetent. I was let go only after 4.5 weeks and was not given a chance to fully understand the companies systems, programs. Please be aware of accepting any Director or Controller roles within this organization since you may regret it. The person before me lasted only 2 months and was let go as well!!

    Cons

    - Horrible and disgusting management. I'm referring to the Senior Management.

    Advice to Management

    Someone should replace them and hire stable ethical people.
