Pros

Excellent working atmosphere, people really care about what they're doing and pay is decent for a non-profit.

Cons

HQ in an unpleasant part of the City but the area is due to improve. Unfortunately, then, the main body of clients (not who you think) will be moving to another rundown area and SFAF will probably follow them there.

Advice to Management

You really do need IT and you need more than to keep the lights on. Instead of allocating the bare minimum, you can improve ability to comply with City and State contracts by investing in adequate IT structure and staff.

    Pros

    Amazing services, wonderful and intelligent staff, cutting edge AIDS research on the ground level, great benefits, and decent salary for a nonprofit.

    Cons

    Sometimes overwhelming, little ability to move up, very political, little comradely between departments, and the bathroom can be awful.

    Advice to Management

    Develop ways to make staff feel important and hear by upper management. Develop feedback loops. Stay mission and client driven.

  2. Great programs, but watch your back

    Pros

    Terrific programs and some truly dedicated people in the program area. Nice work environment and benefits for a non-profit.

    Cons

    The place is incredibly political. Over 70% employee turnover in the development department in less than two years kind of says it all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending millions of dollars on a building you don't even own in the Castro and start listening to the program staff. They understand client needs better than senior management does and a shiny new building is not at the top of the list.
