    Pros

    Management was willing to do more than just direct us to help the community, they also cared for us as individuals and took into account personal matters before we did anything. Open lines of communication at most times of the day allowed more than just a simple employer/employee trust to be built.

    Cons

    The Houston team is small and still growing so there was a handful of times that time out in the Mobile Testing Unit (van) was cut short in order to accommodate the free clinic that is run twice a week.

    Advice to Management

    Continue looking for caring individuals from all walks of life, and possibly look into having staff counseling services available readily for new HIV Testers/Counselors or a regular check-in with management.

    Pros

    If you want a job where you feel like your everyday mundane tasks make a huge difference for your clients as well as the world, then this is the place to work. Staff at all levels are very passionate about providing care, ending stigma, and ending the HIV epidemic. The CEO is a visionary and a dogged advocate for the mission. Though a non-profit, AHF has a very lucrative social enterprise in its pharmacies and thus is a very stable employer and avoids mission drift. It is not grant dependent and so staff can count on keeping their focus and keeping their jobs. They are growing rapidly so there is plenty of opportunity for career growth for the most qualified and resilient.

    Cons

    This organization has grown rapidly in the last 10 years and has not had the foresight to implement standardized operating procedures. The training is deplorable. They recruit entry level staff for the cost savings but expect them to be “nimble” and perform tasks that are realistically only found in personnel with more experience and/or education. They dont adequately staff their operations and so employees get burned out and overwhelmed quickly. And with no raise structure and sub-par salaries, recruitment and retention of qualified staff is challenging. There is plenty of money to alleviate this problem, but it’s not invested in the healthcare centers that provide the primary care of its patients.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more on your staff. Train them. Offer them raises and clear career growth paths. This is your only fault but it’s critical. Your staff loves this work and they love what this organization accomplishes, but they have to make a living.

    Pros

    Dr. Portnoy is an amazing doctor and extremely funny! He takes time with each client and makes them feel good about themselves and shows that laughter is a great medicine! He is extremely knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Management and co workers care more about their status than fact. The HIV team falsifies numbers, Mobile testing doesn’t work more than 3 hours a day on the mobile unit, and could care less about the client. Testing goals are approximately 600 per month. There is no time to find out why people are putting themselves at risk. The team is misinformed an out the use of universal precautions and are putting their clients and staff at risk for blood related infections. Also, each client tested is a commission payment to the tester. So, each client tested isn’t even treated like a number, they are treated like another chunk added to the monthly paycheck. Staff is not properly trained. And management sees these problems, but does nothing to rectify the issues. I do not recommend sending clients here for care.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to separate themselves from being friends with everyone and be a manager. Implement repercussions for falsified information. Make staff run their proper shifts and be aware that mobile unit staff is drinking on the job, showing up late, and leaving early (sometimes as little as two tests before shutting down). AHF puts on a great face to the public, but has many problems internally. Instead of ignoring these problems, they need to be rectified. I currently do not have faith in the current management to successfully succeed in this matter. Staff members are jumping ship regularly and quickly. This should be a red flag. The management duties need to be restructured. The staff duties need to have safeties in place to ensure that management isn’t being lied to. To the direct manager of the Houston office, you are being used by your staff. They are making you look incompetent. These are no longer growing pains. It’s negligence or incompetence at this point. Get further training, train your staff properly, make sure they continue use the precautions regularly for the safety of the clients and the staff.

    Pros

    Caring, hard working people. Many patients are truly thankful for what is done for them.

    Cons

    Original providers and licensed nurses have left. AHF could not keep staff at this location. HR does not care and they blame it on the employees. This is a very toxic place to be. Patients are aware of what's going on!

    Advice to Management

    SAD!
