    Pros

    -Great mission, awesome co workers. Lots of opportunity to take on different projects

    Cons

    -not for profit management style, not organized. Lacking long term direction, priorities shift constantly so support from senior management is always weak.

    I worked at AIDS Healthcare Foundation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    When I started I thought "what a great cause". The staff are generally friendly, there is assigned parking, on-site healthcare, dental care, pharmacy, healthcare benefits, 401k instantly vested.

    Cons

    Sharing the office with the AIDS clinic, sharing the bathrooms with AIDS-positive patients. Getting hired away from a better paying job then fired after 3 months a few days before Thanksgiving: No reason given, no negative feedback at all. Job responsibilities greatly exceed the scope of the job title. In the tiny office I worked in, they went through three temps during the 3 months I was there. They got offers, jumped ship. I demonstrated loyalty, got fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They could have simply offered me a temporary position in the first place. I would not have accepted, but I would have had respect for the company and I would still be employed at my old job. How does a company with the word "compassionate" in its corporate motto headhunt a person from a better paying job, tell them over and over that they are doing great then fire them just a few weeks later (right when benefits are kicking in) for no (stated) reason, no warning, no feedback a few days before Thanksgiving?

    Pros

    I got to help a lot of people as an HIV Counselor. It's very gratifying to make a difference everyday.

    Cons

    The company overall is very dysfunctional. The mission statement claims to "value employees" and that's simply not true. They kick people to the curb in a heartbeat, turnover is huge across the board. Employees walk on eggshells and morale is very low. It's all about the money and keeping AHF in the spotlight. They bully other agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to take a look in the mirror and re-think how they treat people that work for them.
    You don't value the employees, morale is very low, turnover is huge. This company started with compassion and love for people and now that's no longer true. It's just a big Michael Weinstein ego trip.

    Pros

    People are very nice only headed in different directions to make a bigger difference in their goals.

    Cons

    The lack of communication is tremendous. I think Senior Management should start being truthful with the wonderful CEO that they have and stop being scared to say what needs to be said. He only wants the best for all the patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring and connecting. Make sure you are all on the same plate. COMMUNICATE
    Appreciate people that are truly trying to make a difference in working hard and stop thinking I like this person so therefore they are doing a good job.

    Pros

    The company goals were noble and fantastic. It's a shame the staff doesn't really care about organization.

    Cons

    The entire company is very political. They do not give a new person a break. It was either sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wipe out your staff and start over.

    Pros

    Great cause, that is why most people find themselves self-motivated.

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Very limited career growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with the employees and make an effort to get feedback from teams who are led by not-so-great managers.
    President's vision & mission does not trickle down all the way due to immense internal politics.
