Field Director (Former Employee) – United States – June 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.
Decent pay and benefits.
Focus on numbers instead of people, laughable bonus structure.
