      Abusive Work Environment

      Pros

      The greatest benefit gained from working at PPGP was the connections and relationships I made with front line staff. The organizers, educators, and clinic staff are by far the most dedicated, hard working, bright, empathetic, caring, self aware, and powerful leaders I've ever had the privilege of working alongside. Other than that, through trial by fire, I was grateful to eventually learn that PPGP is NOT an organization that should be representative of what true reproductive justice advocacy should look like.

      Cons

      Inequitable pay structures; the CEO made a quarter of a million dollars while front line staff often made nearly poverty level wages. Classism was often upheld by promoting folks into leadership with little to no leadership experience but with advanced academic backgrounds. Leadership often employed bullying and emotional manipulation/abuse. The only gender and race diversity that exists is among front line staff who are coincidentally paid the least. The organization as a whole continuously failed to further the community engagement and allyship that is essential to reproductive justice activism. Overall, this organization taught me what a repro organization does NOT look like.

      Complex/sad feelings about my time there

      Jun 7, 2021 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Everyone there cared so much about the work. I made lifelong friendships and valuable professional relationships. It was a good stepping stone into my later career as it looks great on your resume and you'll learn SO much. The office location is convenient to commute to and from and also has many great options accessible for after work errand running/socializing activities.

      Cons

      The management style was brutal. There was union busting, covert sexism/racism, and very little work/life balance. It's the kind of org that knows their social standing and abuses it. Job security is not as great as it once was and resignation turnover is high. You learn to do a lot on your own, which is great, but aren't always compensated for your level of contribution.
