    I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation part-time (More than a year)

    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

    You'll work with the best of the best at an agency that is doing much in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

    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.

    I worked at San Francisco AIDS Foundation full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    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

    I have been working at San Francisco AIDS Foundation full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
