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

    Pros

    Best coworkers you could ever ask for, understanding immediate management, very good health benefits, union represented position, never a boring day!

    Cons

    Pay is less than other employers for the same position. I have had a few really negative experiences with the HR department regarding wages.

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You learn on the job. you do not need to have gone to school for MA. You will learn so many skills. You learn front office, back office, billing, counseling and much more. It is a great place to work.

    Cons

    You learn a lot so there for you do a lot. They want us to see so many patients and do so much in a fast amount of time. They add more and more but don't take anything away.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put so much on employees. They get burnt out.

  3. "Does wonderful work for patients but doesn't always do right by employees"

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were great, I was encouraged to have a good work/life balance, my coworkers were some of the most passionate people I have ever met.

    Cons

    Low wages for health center workers meant a lot of turnover, and was shameful for a company that purported to promote fair wages. "Open door" policy for upper management was a sham.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your health center workers.

    Pros

    Compelling mission, well-respected brand, smart coworkers

    Cons

    The organization is going through major changes and just recently layed off 30 people and eliminated 30 more open positions. Staff morale is very low, even before the layoffs. More layoffs are expected. The hours are long and the work is stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Less talk, more action, especially when it comes to caring for your employees. More attention to diversity and inclusion. The lack of cohesion on the senior leadership team has a negative impact on the whole organization.

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time

    Pros

    A lot of onsite training, a lot of opportunity for growth, plenty of learning. The clinicians genuinely care and the assistants take the time to counsel the patients.

    Cons

    My particular branch required working every other weekend, and the manager was a little disorganized, which led to short staffing, over staffing and other mismanagement. Other centers I have floated to were wonderful

    Advice to Management

    Be better at taking feedback from your subordinates.

    Perceptions of people opposed to this organization are not based in reality so you find yourself having to educate people on what the organization really does.

    We're in this together. Never forget that!
