    Pros

    This org still recruits amazing people to work there, but mostly based on the reputation and great work done by former administrators. Somehow, great work continues to be done by dedicated line staff that bring awesome results.

    Cons

    Politically volatile environment led by disconnected and obtuse leaders that do not appreciate or cultivate the amazing individuals that work on the front lines with clients or provide the infrastructure to keep the organization successful.

    Advice to Management

    The management's culture of self-congratulations for achievements made on the backs of non-management staff is a real shame. A little respect for those doing the actual work - and those that built the organization - would go a long way.


  3. 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.

    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.


  6. How much is the Castro renovation costing?

    Pros

    Great advocate for AIDS services. Dedicated staffing and does serve clients with true need. Incredible fundraising events.

    Cons

    Does not serve that many people overall. Has more money than most other organizations but doesn't do enough. What is going on with the Castro St renovation?


  7. Great customer service position, wonderful folks to work with

    Pros

    loved the 9-5 and time off for weekends and late evenings - flexible schedule was a big perk. Creating an experience for folks that was life changing is something that was awesome.

    Cons

    It's just too bad that SFAF is moving in the direction of moving towards the Castro and leaving the folks who need access to them most behind in the tenderloin. All the management within ALC has changed since I worked there, so i'd say ask to shadow for a day and see what you like.

    Advice to Management

    Great for work life balance Team spirit strong comrodary enjoyable folks to work with well taken care of

    Pros

    Great starting salary. Great line staff to work with. Agency has honorable mission statement.

    Cons

    Line staff has not had a raise in at least seven years while the board granted the CEO a $40, 000 increase plus bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for line staff with at least a cost of living increase. Loyalty needs to be rewarded. Line staff fulfill the contracts.
