The absolute WORST place I've ever worked
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 19, 2018
My predecessor spoke openly about how awful this place is. And boy was I wrong for doubting! Cut-throat people hungry for power. Everybody racing each other to the middle, People throwing each other under the bus for LITERALLY no reason. Backstabbing and inept people left and right. Not enough diversity at the top. Never trust an organization whose CEO makes half a million a year, while there are girls crying in the break room that they can't afford to buy diapers for their children on their salaries. Shameful! Also, why is the Center's logo currently being used by multiple company's across the world? Either it was ripped off (not likely) or the head of marketing bought it from one of those logo generators. So funny...
Pros
good salary, your work helps LGBTQ community
Cons
shady people, lack of diversity in most roles, power hungry environment

poor pay and culture of harassment
Advocate (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, CAMay 29, 2017
Management was a wreck, our director had been working​ there for about two decades and had no enthusiasm for the work, would disappear half the day on a regular basis. Was indecisive and neurotic, even paranoid at times and prone to outbursts of anger.

Senior Management was not as bad, but paid themselves handsomely while staff was paid horribly and benefits were not that great. Couldn't even afford to live in close proximity to work.

It was a good experience for a short time, but not a place to stay long term. There were a lot of white folks with serious victim mentality​ yet were pretty racist. The hypocrisy gets old. Also issues of inappropriate behavior were common and HR was useless. Retaliation against employees for complaints was not unusual.
Pros
Get to do some good work helping others.
Cons
Some managent and staff had serious psychological problems. Poor pay, no advancement.

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.

Good place to work if you want to be involved in the LGBT community, making a difference in others lives. Compensation could be better since this is the worlds largest LGBT non-profit org.

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.
