    Pros

    Wonderful, passionate, small and collaborative team. Great mission. Opportunity to help patients.

    Cons

    Salaries far below market value of nonprofit workers in SF. Nonprofit workplace, but micromanaged like a fortune 500 company. Dangerous incompetence on the executive level.

    Advice to Management

    New director, hopefully, with better social and business acumen. More modernized processes. Better salaries to keep employees past one year.

    Pros

    Being a non-profit you get to wear many hats and learn to do things that don't necessarily fall under your title.

    Cons

    Management can be blatantly racist or stereotypical at times (once the manager claimed that she would not hire a person of x ethnicity anymore in order to avoid drama).

    Management micromanages your every moves and complains that they shouldn't have to micromanage you at all. Instruction on projects are confusing at times, priorities change in a matter of minutes.

    Pay is not good considering the amount of work one has to shuffle on a weekly basis, but that's the nature of a non-profit.

    Other bad management practice include the executive director taking a 75% of a bonus given to the company by the Board of Directors, and dividing the rest among the 4 remaining employees, considering that the executive director makes more than the 4 employees' combined salaries on a given year.
