communications (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – April 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.
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.
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
