Teen Advocate (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: enhanced speaking skills, free lunch
Cons: n/a
A typical day would begin with my fellow teen advocates and I educating teens between the ages of 11-18 about reproductive health. On a regular basis we would go to schools or after-school programs to facilitate workshops on different topics which include the following: Teen Rights, Healthy Relationships, STI's, Abstinence, and much more. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was being able to enlighten teenagers in my age group with information that could have major affects on their reproductive health and their lives. Co-facilitating the workshops with other teen advocates made the job even better because it gave me the experience of working as a team. This job also gave me the skills of being able to manage a large group of people and being open to new people whom I have never met. – less

Disappointing
Patient Care Coordinator/Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Boise, IdahoSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: benefits, open communication, friendly co-workers/work environment
Cons: short breaks, advancement not available as in past, lack of flexibility
My experience spans over a nine year period. In this time things went from great to worse. There was a merge half way through this time and perhaps it was unfortunate timing for me, but being laid off due to attendance even though I "was not a problem employee," in terms of attendance, was unexpected. They tried to let me keep my job, but after four – more... years of holding a now-satellite (once local) position to the department, my belief is they simply wanted to consolidate. My local co-worker was laid off within the month after they let me go. The termination was cold and heart-breaking, after nine years of dedication and hard work, I lost my paid time off and was told my supervisors could not be referrals for me. When once they could be flexible and understanding, especially when a sick pet is involved, over the years they changed to mark each time I left 30 minutes early or arrive 15 minutes late (to attend to my pet,) as an occurrence. And with my supervisor being in Seattle, it was often difficult for me to reach her in a timely manner. Earlier that same year I had applied to two different Clinic Manager positions because I had enough knowledge and experience to do the job. When once that would have been encouraged and one would have been uplifted and mentored, after the merge, because I had no management experience, they refused to promote me. It used to feel like a family, working together to meet the needs of our community. Then transformed into more of a cold, corporate-centric business with the demands of a out-of-state union out-weighing my history and dedication with them.
The best part of my job was feeling like I was working with friends every day, and the sense of satisfaction that came when a client was truly satisfied and received the help they needed. When management was at it's best, I learned something every day, felt loved, supported, and listened to. At it's worse, I felt invisible, disposable, unappreciated and under-utilized. It was often stressful work, and I'm not sure management understand that and the energy it took to do well at the job. I miss my friends/co-workers, I miss the benefits, I miss helping the clients. It's sad to think how things went down when previously I held them in such high regard and defended the organization when outside the work place. I still appreciate the service provided by it, but cannot shake this feeling of disappointment. – less

Poor Management
Nurse (Former Employee), Southern New EnglandAugust 29, 2014
Pros: helping patients
Cons: low wages, poor management, negative work environment
Management is more concerned about making friends than actually managing their staff. Wages are also low, however, they claim to offer competitive pay (which is extremely below the state average of what nurses should make). Also base their decisions on hearsay vs actual proof. Terrible environment to work in.

Sales (Former Employee), San DiegoAugust 23, 2014
Cons: too long to list
Worst environment ever, not an equal opportunity employer which is obvious from the moment you enter the facility and had I checked earlier I would have realized this by simply looking at their Linkdin employee list....the majority of staff are women, that's right, apparently men cannot work at PP corporate headquarters, apparently we men are unable – more... to relate to their culture. Very rude. – less

CLINIC MANAGER/ TITLE X SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKAugust 7, 2014
My responsibilities were to manage the daily operations of clinic. There were four Clinicians and MA's that would change daily and the we focused primarily on reproductive health. I began with this company in their pediatrics department and was promoted into management within three months. This was a great experience, fresh out of school and I had great – more... mentor's that taught me about integrity and how to manage fairly and respectfully. I had great staff and we operated this clinic very successfully for several years. – less

clinic setting helping patients
Clinic Assistant (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNJuly 31, 2014
Pros: loved helping and the education was great
Cons: to far from home the drive was bad
for a while I would go in and open the clinic turn on the computers unlocked medical records and started with getting ready for the day. When patients started coming in I would call them to the back take their vitals made sure they had all their paper work filled out correctly. Then as soon as the patient was ready the nurse practitioner would go in – more... I would put patients info into computer so when NP would be ready to do her work on the computer I would be done. The nurse would exit the patient but I would already be with the next patient . and so on I would also do different lab work and test. – less

Upper Level Management Sucks, Employees are dysfunctional!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), PasadenaJuly 18, 2014
Pros: services offered, patients, facilities are great
Cons: upper management, lazy, loud mouthed employees
As a new manager coming in with the hopes of being an example, seeking growth, change and upholding standards, this is far from what this organization was hoping for. The Sr Director of Operations is more concerned with keeping dysfunctional and inadequate employees happy instead of trying to change the culture in this organization. They believe employees – more... or managers they hire and are suppose to support to change the culture in this place. Employees come in when they want, often late, call in sick and if there is a single employee doing their job and stick out, the rest of the employees gang upon them and bully them. Clinicians are overworked, long wait times for patients, excessive wait times. Its a clique culture. If you don't fit in they will do their best to get rid of you no matter how hard and how long you work. A large turnover rate in clinicians and managers. If you work here, use it for the experience and get a check, get what you need and leave. – less

What I truly appreciate is that my day was anything but typical in this position. I learned to grow and develop professionally, while building lasting relationships with professionals that I provided my services to. A rewarding aspect was my exposure to the many facets of a differential day, from teaching in a classroom, or residential facility to a – more... community event, while having the opportunity of empowering individuals to make healthy and informed decisions regarding their future. I am forever grateful for the trust, relationships developed and the many opportunities that I encountered. – less
