Administration (Current Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – January 31, 2018
I love working for Desert AIDS Project. It is great job security with a great benefit package. It is a friendly atmosphere that is consistently growing. Any job can be challenging at times, but overall this is a great place to work with many perks. If you come to work to gossip then this should not be the place for you. D.A.P. does so much for the patients and clients we serve and the people that work there are like a 2nd family.

In the short time I worked here, I found the atmosphere and collaboration better than any other place I've ever worked. It's a place I looked forward to going to every day. I would heartily recommend it for employment.
Community Health Educator (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – May 30, 2017
It was a very high stress environment. It was always changing, but changing for the wrong reasons. The culture was not positive, and it was negatively impacting the departments surrounding. The reason I stayed so long was because I loved what I did, not who I did it for.
Health clinic staff (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – September 2, 2016
If you work in another department other the the medical side it could be a pretty good job. But if you work on the medical side the manager is a joke, she doesn't know if she's coming or going. The bad thing is there is no one you can really talk to because it seems management sticks together and little guys get stepped on. I couldn't get out fast enough. My experience was bad but may have just been the department I was in.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – April 4, 2016
DAP is a great place to work overall, job security however is contingent upon the department. Some areas simply have higher turnover than others. The clinic, which they call the heart of the 30 year old organization only has a couple off employees that have been there longer than 3 years boasting 5 medical directors in as many years. Other departments have employees with decades long tenures.
Great benefits, better than average pay, camaraderie with co-workers and clients.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – January 7, 2015
Even though the Desert AIDS Project appears to be a very compassionate place that is known for huge fund-raisers and awards banquets, and thrives to stay on top of the HIV/AIDS problems that face many of our population, it's weakness is in the upper management team. There have been many problems with the inconsistent variety of upper management employees hired to achieve and maintain Quality Assurance.
Great place to work and get involved with the community at large.
Lower quality of healthcare in the past, and relentless Chief Program Officers in the past
