    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Extraordinary opportunity to work for an important mission - right to reproductive health care with other people who care as passionately for the mission.

    Cons

  2. "great organization/mission"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Medical Assistant in Ypsilanti, MI

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time

    Pros

    Meaningful work providing high quality care to individuals largely coming from marginalized communities who have limited, if any, access to basic high quality health care. Those you work along side do this work because they are passionate about it and care for the mission and others.

    Cons

    The environment can be chaotic due to outside political factors and typical challenges of a non-profit like staffing levels and compensation.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It’s great to know that I’ve contributed to keeping health care access available. The mission of the organization is something that I think everyone agrees is important.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance and lack of recognition for employees that deliver big work. Management and division leaders are disconnected to staff and don’t listen or make decisions inclusively. They claim to value diversity but not all people get treated the same.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood

    Pros

    Abortion access. Women’s health care centered.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. TOXIC. Women supporting women? Hardly. The women working in our clinic are miserable, petty, gossiping, back stabbing, two faced little children. Everyone reports everyone for everything and is constantly trying to get someone else fired. Training is a disorganized dumpster fire. I’m watching new employees struggle way too hard because nobody cares about them. We’re severely understaffed. Why? Because new employees don’t stay! If you manage to actually get trained? You are LUCKY. Not paying clinic workers a living wage. Scheduling is all over the place. The right hand never knows what the left hand is doing. Can’t remember the last time I legitimately got my 30 minute lunch break. I have learned I have to turn the other cheek when I’m hearing employees make fun of patients. MAKE FUN OF PATIENTS. Because if I say anything, and I have, then I get ganged up on. I become the bad guy. And backlash starts. I have never been so unhappy at job in all my life... and it’s not worth it for $13 an hour.

    I have been working at Planned Parenthood full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Family oriented. Fun staff, love helping patients learn about the reproductive health care.

    Cons

    Lots of patients, little time for breaks, no extra incentive to see more patients.

    I worked at Planned Parenthood full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Planned Parenthood helps the uninsured get access to reproductive health care. Clients get services for family planning, female gynecological and male exams, STD testing, pregnancy testing on a sliding fee scale on which majority of patients don't pay for their services. What I like about planned parenthood is that their providers give each patient the best care possible and answer all question they have and when they leave all their questions have been answered and treat all their complains with compassionate care.

    Cons

    can get very busy at times and patients get frustrated at times also no appointments available for walk in exams
