    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time

    Pros

    -Decent pay
    -Passionate team
    -Mission driven work

    Cons

    -Call Center management is lacking. No standardized training for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Implement trauma informed care at the clinics themselves. It is easy to see that staff is on the edge of burn out, and it is frequently taken out on call center staff and patients.

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

    Pros

    During my years here I’ve always felt like my input and options mattered. The organization focuses on work culture and it’s mission! I’ve grown within the organization and have found amazing mentors here.

    Cons

    Currently political climate makes the everyday fight for access to care hard. It definitely takes a toll.
    Some days we work really long hours.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Advice to Management

    Take good care of HCAs. Listen to concerns and offer support (this was especially needed after Colorado Springs attack)

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

    Pros

    Great mission, passionate people, passionate supporters

    Cons

    Lots of turnover, management doesn't know how to support staff, easy burnout, no work-life balance, claims to be trauma informed but management doesn't treat staff with same respect they treat their patients with, lack of communication, lots of office cliques. I was also the only other educator in the entire affiliate, and the CEO couldn't remember my name or my face to save her life.

    Advice to Management

    Need better communication, have a better mentor program to help new employees.

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, meaningful and fulfilling work, collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    Raises for employees when clearly in the budget for both c3 and c4 affiliate organizations. Evaluate employees based on not only the quality of their work but their qualifications for the job they already have.
