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

    Pros

    Planned Parenthood provides amazing benefits and opportunities to its staff. The care Planned Parenthood has for its staff mirrors the way they care about their patients. The slogan "Care. No Matter What" isn't just a tagline but a value present throughout the entire organization. The work culture is stellar and the leadership is transparent about decisions being made.

    Cons

    Stressful - not because of the office environment or management but because of the nature of the work and the landscape of opposition. This stress is recognized by management and benefits and events are held to ease the strain on the team.
    Adapting to the work culture takes a bit of time because the organization is so large.

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

    Pros

    Forward-thinking leadership; staff and employees share passion for PP mission and support each other in accomplishing same. As a nonprofit, pay is not always competitive with private sector but health benefits very good; matching 401K

    Cons

    If you aren't ready to work hard everyday, look elsewhere because you won't make it here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue striving to find timely ways to communicate critical info to all employees

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, open atmosphere with a diverse and committed team. Very good benefits with no waiting time for health benefits at national headquarters.

    Cons

    Stressful working environment because of opposition Planned Parenthood faces, particularly with a Republican-led government. Added stress in light of layoffs that have occurred. Some senior leaders have higher budgets than others and are more accommodating to their staff than other leaders. Job grading system is off kilter and needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to using the skill set of existing employees instead of being quick to enlist consultants who charge three times as much as your employees.

    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..
