Great place!
Field Director (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNMay 14, 2019
AFP was a great place to work. There was constant challenge to improve but also allowed for flexibility to chart those paths on your own. I really enjoyed my time there.

Quick-paced but fun
Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 3, 2018
Volunteering for Americans for Prosperity (AFP) was very exciting, especially during the 2016 election cycle.

Making cold-calls took a bit of getting used to, but was a great learning experience in dealing with stress and both pleasant and unpleasant people.

The people who oversaw the volunteers were fun people to be around and let us have space to make the calls.

They compensated us with meals and drinks every time we volunteered and at the end gave myself and several others a free trip (airfare and hotel paid for) to Orlando, Florida for their annual conference in September 2016.

Can be an exciting place to work
Field Director (Current Employee) –  United StatesAugust 3, 2018
If you are young and single this is a great and fun place to work, but if you want to have any semblance of a work-life balance then this isn't for you. Be prepared to constantly be pushed for more, more often than not in ways that don't make sense or that are not realistic to the mission and vision. Very limited opportunities for growth unless you are a high metric performer, so hopefully you live and work in an area where there are high levels of engagement.

Regional Field Manager (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAJuly 31, 2018
The field work, and work outside of the corporate office was invigorating and meaningful. A lot of support from the top. Middle management was very unhelpful.

Regional Field Director (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJuly 7, 2018
As the Regional Field Director i was responsible for volunteer recruitment, retention, and execution of volunteer events. This involved traveling to where the volunteers were and meeting with them. Educating them on the mission of AFP and getting them plugged into the community i was building.

Not as advertised
Field Director (Former Employee) –  United StatesJune 23, 2018
Advertised as a way to impact policy and educate voters, but their definition of educating voters and ACTUALLY educating voters about policy are completely different. Stated focus is on building relationships with volunteers and activists, but actual focus was on the numbers of volunteers one could recruit regularly. State leadership seemed to be more concerned about making the state look good to national leadership (i.e metrics) than about educating activists. Not a lot of autonomy in our state - if idea didn't come from above, it was usually discouraged. That being said, there are many great people working for AFP throughout the country, people that view the work AFP does as critically important instead of a resume-builder.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits.
Cons
Focus on numbers instead of people, laughable bonus structure.

Great place to work if you believe in free-market values.
Grassroots Director (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAMay 15, 2018
This is one of the most effective free-market grassroots organizations in the country. Unfortunately, they have a reputation of having a revolving door, and layoff 30-50% of their staff every two years. It's a good launchpad for your career, but don't get too settled.
Pros
Good pay and great benefits.
Cons
Long hours, very demanding goals, little work-life balance.

Must believe in the mission
Field Director (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 19, 2018
National staff doesn't understand what goes on in the states. There is no work life balance, and they just push negatives and do not build up with what you are doing right. There is only what you are doing wrong. The benefits are good, and you believe you are working towards a bigger/more common goal, but you are treated as a pawn vs. a person. Again, no work life balance.

Field Associate (Former Employee) –  Rogers, ARMarch 12, 2018
I was able to challenge myself. Phone surveys and door to door canvassing was something I never would have seen myself doing, but I wound up loving it! Managing volunteer phone banks was rewarding.

Job for fit people who believe in a great conservative cause. Knock on doors asking questions on local politics. On the fall season we would make phone calls of the same questions.

Field Associate (Former Employee) –  Greenwood Village, CO 80111May 19, 2017
The job allows the employees to work whatever times they need to, as long as they meet the weekly requirements. The employees and managers tend to have a bias towards politics which does not support the companies vision.

Field Associate Representative (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHMay 17, 2017
A great place to work, if you want to work part time, walk a lot and talk to swing voters.
The Day of Action was fun and it was great meeting new people of similar political interests.
