Patient Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – November 11, 2017
Planned Parenthood is a place I am proud to work at, but it is far from perfect. The office is often overly busy, and sometimes it feels like we need a few more staff members, but overall PP is a great place to work
Reproductive Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Southeastern, PA – June 19, 2017
we see a total of 90 to 100 patients a day its very high paced learn can learn a lot working here. Everyone get along we all help each other out through out the day because sometimes it can get stressful.
Medical assistant clinical trainer (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 14, 2017
I am a Medical Assistant Clinical Trainier. I love what I do as a MAC. I have class room training and on site training with new employees. the management here is great. my typical day is to checking my emails and completing any tasks that may need to be done. I also update training plan outline.
Reproductive health information is important, but often tainted by politics
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 13, 2017
It is very important to teach people about their reproductive organs and about STI prevention, however I often felt as if my fellow volunteers would not stop competing over who could be the most progressive. I love information but dislike when people insert their blatantly identitarian politics over it.
I don't regret my time volunteering with Planned Parenthood and remember it with pride, however I would not choose to volunteer here again.
Huge turnover due to workplace culture which does not value individuals. Lack of effective management leading to chaotic and dysfunctional environment. No transparency in decisions, no consultation with staff regarding changes that affect the clinic, including hiring decisions and schedules.
Amazing, committed staff. A sense of mission and genuinely being needed by patients.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Vista, CA – June 7, 2017
I can only speak from my own experience. Started off thinking I had a great job. Soon as I realized it wasn't when I saw how pety and caty the staff was and how they tried to make me feel like I did something to them or wasn't involved in the team. I guess people will always try to put you down before they ever have anything nice to say about you. Group of girls did nothing but gossip and talk about the people that go there thinking that the medical personnel is going to be professional, of course nobody ever says anything or they will lose their jobs. If you think your business is private, it's not. I personally don't agree with abortions but I didn't let it affect my job or pass judgment on these women and sometimes young girls. Poorly managed, if you try to say anything your best keeping it to yourself. Best advice to anyone trying to get a job is to smile and be fake, and pretend to like everyone you work with.
Reproductive Health Assistant (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – June 7, 2017
I loved my time here. They truly care about their employees and the employees care about the work they do. It was easily the most rewarding professional job I have ever had, both personally and professionally.
Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Kearny Mesa, CA – May 31, 2017
Working for this non profit organization was an amazing experience. Being there for the mission was what makes each and every one of us want to wake up and go to work. However, it seems like the management communication is very poor. I heard numerous complaint of employees not satisfied with their job position or okay with the center managers and it seemed that HR never seemed to do anything about it. They rather have their employees quit than address any issues or solve any problems. They also seem to favorite their top directors at the administration building that they forget about the actual clinics themselves. Overall, my experience there was great, but it is very disappointing that they seem to care more about the salaries of the directors then the actual employees caring for the community and its patients.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – May 22, 2017
Working at Planned Parenthood is an honor. The culture of the clinic was very positive and everyone supported you. The work was very gratifying and offered many opportunities for learning something new.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 14, 2017
HR was a joke and never even answered phone calls from clinic. Clinic supervisors didn't care about patients or their staff. Their pay is nothing and no where near most medical positions salary. HIPAA and OSHA problems, have you lie when getting audited. No training only 3 days at business office to sit at a desk and most MA's never get fully trained here. Ridiculous. I love planned parenthood but the Arizona one makes them all look bad.
