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

    Pros

    I learned things about state laws, grants, inspections (CLIA, Pharmacy, Health Department, PPFA, etc.) which was great for my career. I learned about how safe abortion services are, how much they're needed and I got to work with some amazing doctors and nurses. I learned so much about birth control and effective use and best of all, being able to help SO MANY PEOPLE! :)

    Cons

    Fast paced, understaffed at times, security concerns with crazies in this world (although I felt safe at work- PP did a great job with that).

    Advice to Management

    If there is a lot of turn around, there is an upper management issue- look there. See what you can do to keep entry level employees happy and wanting to stay and work hard.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time

    Pros

    I worked at one of the affiliates as administrative staff. It was full of passionate people who cared about PP's mission. I learned a lot in my role.

    Cons

    Management was not great, but they were trying to improve. There were also a lot of backwards and dated practices that people were resistant to change.

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

    Pros

    You learn more about the female anatomy, birth control. As a full time employee you receive health insurance.

    Cons

    The company doesn't care about its employees as much as it does it patients. Patients act rude to the employees and the company doesn't dismiss the patient but allows for negative behavior to continue

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees good, respect and encourage them to grow.
