Field Director II (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 1, 2019
Love AFP, the heart of this company is about helping people remove barriers so they can have happier lives. Unfortunately, the media likes to demonize this organization and doesn't adequately represent. AFP is about helping people and servant leadership through building relationships with people and changing policy legislatively to help people be more free to prosper. The people you meet who work there are dedicated people who want to make a positive difference in the world. Passionate organization and passionate culture.
Senior Field Director (Former Employee) – DeLand, FL – August 5, 2019
I was so excited to have this job, the long hours and demands did not bother me at all and for the most part my co-workers from across the country were some of the best people I have ever met. I learned quickly that the culture preached is not lived, management does not approve of new comers being over achievers meaning those who do not meet goals are those who are promoted and the teams that bust their behinds are often demoted or laid off and black balled in the industry. If you want to work someplace with great benefits and pay then this is it, a huge amount of donor money is wasted in this organization
Regional Field Director (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 27, 2019
Toxic management at State level with threats of firing at every single meeting, conference, training. Good work was rarely recognized and poor performing field directors who cheated on their work were retained instead of being fired crushing the morale of the remaining field team. As other positions opened, they were given to management personal choice instead of interviewing employees and giving them a chance to advance. “Failing up” was the pattern as the least performing employees were steadily moved to higher positions.
Training, marketable skills development
Toxic management style, threats, no job security, no recognition for good work
