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

    Pros

    some of the smartest, kindest women i've ever met work/worked here ; all of the women I met as patients were also remarkable. Fast paced and lots of challenges; I learned a lot; everyone is wholeheartedly committed to patients; runs like a well-oiled machine ...

    Cons

    ... a well-oiled abortion machine? Yikes. Also, not enough resources for patients post-procedure (i.e. counseling/emotional support, not always needed, but can be very isolating and difficult if it is needed and not readily available).

    Advice to Management

    Instead of eliminating the follow-up visit, make it optional so that women who think they might want to follow-up can do so without having to feel as though they are not welcome or shouldn't want to. Ease up on the BOT stuff and the scripts and hold regular, optional support/processing sessions for staff to meet and discuss their experiences, possibly guided by professional clinicians (i.e. mental health). Nobody who works here is unaware or unprepared for the nature of the job, however, that doesn't necessarily make the day to day experience any less challenging; it would be helpful to feel that the organization understands and acknowledges that as a fact, rather than protecting itself politically by distancing itself from anything that could in any way be perceived as validating the 'pro-life' opposition

    Pros

    Incredible mission driven organization
    Salary & benefits for full time staff are pretty good for a non-profit
    Talented, passionate work force

    Constant political attacks create a constant campaign-like feeling to the work

    Advice to Management

    Too many Chiefs no enough Indians, stop running staff of with the authority boost, not all management is like that but be mindful, MOST are not there to help you. You should feel growth even when corrected, and ALOT of the employees don't, thats why the turn over rate is so high.
