    Pros

    The best thing about SFAF is their staff. They are unique, quirky, intelligent and easy-going. Really never met someone I didn't like when I worked there. Good pay, hours usually flexible, and my boss(s) have always been nice-reasonable.

    Cons

    None really to speak of. There is an ungodly amount of emails you are expected to read, but that's really not a big deal. Altogether it's a great place to work. The location does bare mentioning, this place is in the hood, which for me is no problem, but 6th street can get a bit sketchy at night.

    Advice to Management

    I know it's a huge non-profit but some more contact with the executives would be nice

    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.

    I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Good, hard-working staff who are efficient and focused on maximum impact on community in terms of organizational mission.

    Cons

    A larger nonprofit organization can sometimes have challenges of keeping staff feeling connected to leadership.


  10. How much is the Castro renovation costing?

    I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation

    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?


  11. Good Coworkers but Board likes to squeeze

    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.
