The programs of SFAF are doing absolutely amazing work and you feel the reward from that daily. The people and volunteers are compassionate and easy to work with. It was a very relaxed work environment. Pay is competitive for a non-profit depending on the role.
Politics and usual. The upper management doesn't listen to the advice of the programs that actually provide the services to clients. This is how the health center ended up being rebranded as "Strut", which no one who works there wanted.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at San Francisco AIDS Foundation (San Francisco, CA).
Well don't believe anything they say. They strung me along for 9 months and lied to me profusely in the interview process. And then retracted offers made in interviews and phone conversations after complaining of rampant sexual harassment and racial discrimination. They told me because it wasn't written down there's no proof. Stay away from this organization by all means necessary. It's literally the worst place I've ever worked and I have significant international work experience.
