Only looking to benefit Gay White Men
Health Services (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 29, 2018
Real upper management is all male (90% white) with the exception of the female CEO who acts as a figurehead. She is never involved directly with real staff concerns with the exception of the one time union staff were very close to striking and news coverage got wind of it.

It is lovely place to work if you are if you are LGBT as you can be authentic and don't feel the need to hide your real self. People who are not LGBT are welcomed in the workforce as allies.

The center is only interested in expanding causes beyond gay white men when there are dollars specifically given to them to do so such as grants. If there are no dollars specifically allocated they expect these marginalized populations to seek them out in Hollywood.

Transwomen have a full scope of services however Transmen are greatly ignored both as clients and as staff. For the longest time service were not available to transpeople the way they were for gay white men.

If you are Black the racism will be subtle but it will definitely be there in the form of lack of advancement. I have seen this throughout departments regardless of merit or education level achieved. Promotions are often overlooked for workers who have been there long periods of time and have proven their merit. Programs meant to be directed at gay Black men are handed over to non-Black people to manage even though there are qualified Black staff on board.

Same with trans programming. Trans related programming is only allowed to be directed by trans staff to a point.

The open door policy is a joke and you will be reprimanded if you
  more... attempt to use it.

There is still great work being done at the center but unfortunately the workers most dedicated to serving the actual interest of the public are most often silenced.

You work in the Culture
Certified Medical Assistant (Back Office) (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, CAJune 30, 2018
The experience working at the center, is what you make of it. You learn a lot, you work with the LGBTQ+ community and the work flow/pace can be hectic! Overall not a bad place to work, but like any place of employment, could use some fine tuning.

An unfortunate disaster
Advocate (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 29, 2018
It’s a shame when the largest lgbt org in the country is a disaster to work for. I heard that other departments were better, but the youth and family service dept needs a serious managerial and staff overhaul. Working one-on-one with our most desperate clients is rewarding beyond measure, yet not an ideal or safe work environment overall.
Pros
Resume booster
Cons
Management, culture, departmental divide

The people are great very fast pace. Clients are fun but spoiled. Plenty of opportunities for advancement in the pharmacy or the center itself. Very far commute.

Though I was there for a short period of time I work for a great IT team at the LGBT Center in Hollywoood. Are job was very important. Assisting Health care workers with issues pertaining to Allscripts EHR clinical module from freezing or locking them out the system.I learned that it was important to keep this software working correctly for the many patients they had daily in the center. Every day was a new issue and challenge. I enjoyed the experience and working with my IT team.
