    Pros

    Great organization that cares about staff and patients.

    Cons

    Cannot advance unless you are good friends with managers or sleeping with managers.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop rotating managers that clearly don't know how to do their job and that everyone hates. How does one person go from being Health center manager to Manager of Clinical systems to HR in a one year span? Obvious nepotism going on here..

    None, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Everyone is confused and committing errors.

    Pros

    Planned Parenthood is an amazing organization to work for considering that I am fresh out of college (1 year officially in May) and they offered an amazing position with tons of experience and an amazing starting wage!

    Cons

    As in all big companies, higher-ups don't really know who you are and that's always a pitfall in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees! If you invest in us, we invest in you!
