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.

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.

Fun Making a Difference
Field Associate (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAApril 17, 2018
This is a great college job or an excellent way to get your foot in the door to the political scene. You go around to randomly-selected houses in a neighborhood to get people to answer opinion questions about trending issues. You often work with volunteers or fellow employees.
Pros
Gain experience and networking connections while often working on your own
Cons
The organization is donation-funded, so they cut drastically if donations go down or if they've overspent during an election year.

Great culture, values the big picture
communications (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAApril 10, 2017
AFP is a really principled organization that cares about its employees and stays dedicated to its free-market foundation.

Across all departments, there is a good work/life balance and managers who are flexible and genuinely want you to do well and enjoy your job. Co-workers are very helpful and friendly and provide a really fun, comfortable work environment while still getting a lot of impressive work done.

It's very fast paced, given how quickly policy battles develop and there's a lot of DC-related turnover. However, there is also an abundance of free food and regular opportunities to learn in your knowledge of the organization, work skills and conservative principles.
Pros
great work culture, sticks to their principles
Cons
high turnover

Great place, no free time
Regional Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VANovember 15, 2016
If you are a type A personality or just have a fierce desire to let your passion to fight for freedom flow, AFP is a great place to work. If you are a lazy bum who shows up for a paycheck (of which there are very few), then not so much. This organization is really only for the best.

AFP is a truly great place to work.
Administrative Assistant - Operations (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VANovember 7, 2016
AFP is a truly great place to work. Culture is really important to the organization. They strike the perfect work/life balance. It is a younger staffed organization so the potential to move up is high if you work hard and prove yourself.
