"Great people but not overworked and unhappy"

I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time

Pros

Impressive, smart and savvy group of people running and working at all ranks of the company. Everyone believes in what they do. The work you're doing there is for the greater good. So many of the clients you're indirectly impacting go to PP for their check ups. It's a great cause and mission.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations. Constant pressure (partly from external factors). People just aren't happy there. People leave constantly. Work-life balance is nearly impossible.

Advice to Management

Invest more in keeping people. Turnover rates are really high, and that has never been addressed. It was never clear if management was concerned by this. I'm guessing not.

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Important work with an unconventional structure, decent pay and hours, diverse employee-base. The potential to be a great place to work is there.

    Cons

    Total lack of accountability within upper-management, the exclusive use of negative-reinforcement when disciplining, terrible organization. It varies greatly from affiliate to affiliate, but at my affiliate there is a lack of valuation for employees which leads to terrible morale and high turn-over which is attributed to both people being fired for petty/political reasons and people quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a better environment, focus more on organization, and use positive reinforcement. The only way you will improve the work environment and your precious "productivity" is by building solid teams who have the motivation to make the improvements that are dictated, not presented. Your employees do not respect you, at all.
