    I have been working at International Planned Parenthood Federation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My colleagues continue to be the only pro to working here.

    Cons

    The CEO and upper management have lost touch with reality. The environment is toxic and everyone is worried about their future. It seems that our jobs are at the whim of the CEO. We all feel that we are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise the Board to take a good hard look at who they placed at the head of the Organization. There was a time when we were seen as the best in the federation and now our reputation is in shambles. Its disheartening.

    I worked at International Planned Parenthood Federation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. People are passionate about their work.
    2. Flexible schedule with good reason.
    3. Depending in your area, the people are very kind.
    4. Benefits are superb.
    5. Great place to learn and start a career.
    6. A lot of vacation time.

    Cons

    1. The pay is very very low. Supposedly there is "no money in the budget" yet front office management get promotions to themselves and hire more people to their benefit.
    2. The directors are great people but manage their budgets horribly.
    3. The turn over in the accounting department is super high, looks like their people realize their high worth then move on to better companies , their management hires the right people but cannot keep them happy to stay.
    4. Career advancement is very rare unless you have a close relationship to your supervisor.
    5. Yearly annual reviews are just filed, no review is actually considered.
    6. A slow disconnect is happening between departments ever since the Trump election.

    Advice to Management

    Don't say one thing on the job description when you hire people and having it be something completely different. The mission of the company is great but pay more attention in catering those who work ALOT instead of catering to other directors success. Also, pay more attention to the little guy doing the grunt work.

    I have been working at International Planned Parenthood Federation full-time

    Pros

    Having worked with many other NGO's I can attest to the fact that this Organization does care for its staff. i have worked at the UN were they treat their people with disdain and do not care about their well being. Here they actually care to ask you how you are feeling and what they can do to make your situation better.

    Cons

    There is a handful of toxic people here who do not like the fact that things started to improve in 2014 when there was change at the senior management level. They felt threatened and are now trying to cause disruptions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Toxic few and continue doing what your doing. There is a new leader in place with the pulse of a New Generation. Don't let the grumblings of a few stop you from the goal line.
