I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation full-time (More than 3 years)

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.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, dedicated staff, Leadership continues to work hard under unhealthy and unwarranted criticism.

    Cons

    Programs staff are clueless as to how to work with anybody outside of their department and completely disrespectful of anybody who works here that offers other skills to the Foundation. It's their way or no way, and their way isn't professional or even reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, regardless of what you hear Leadership is actually respectful and listens to staff. Thank you for not just bowing down to everything the Programs department thinks should be done. If they don't like working in a professional environment, they should leave and stop pushing their personal agenda on everybody else, it's tiring and old.

    I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation full-time

    Pros

    - you meet interesting and passionate people

    That's as far as it goes.

    Cons

    - no room or even opportunity to grow
    - hiring is full of nepotism, covert bias, even though they scream "let's diversify"
    - management is disinterested in helping their subs grow; unsupportive;
    - no proper training nor direction as a new hire; thus you stumble through your job appearing unfit to others
    - management hires who they want, not who's actually qualified, regardless of the loops they place in the hiring process (it's only to look as if they provide equal opportunity)

    Advice to Management

    You waste a person's time and your money, when you have no interest in helping develop the people that come to work for the foundation. Don't scream "diversity" when you are inclined to be the total opposite. If you're a person of color, there's a lower possibility of advancing.
