Pros – Flexibility. A schedule of community rallies, team meetings, and calls lists offering flexibility.
Cons – Less than user-friendly process for new hires.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Many fine people work hard to bring fiscal accountability to government and awareness to the public. The ambitious are rewarded with bigger opportunities.
Cons – The catty nature of politics combined with hidden agendas and alliances at the highest levels may make smart employees question the reason they are wasting their time and talent with this organization. In many ways, the standard operating procedures are recipes for frustration and failure.
Advice to Senior Management – Allow specialization to occur when employees show prowess in an area. It is possible to have so many spinning plates that no breakthroughs ever occur and deliverables remain underwhelming. The focused leader with production talent gets frustrated working in this environment.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – AFP has the edge in grassroots organizing for now, which makes it a fast-paced, exciting place to work. If you're in the right department or chapter, work can be fun. Lots of new younger staff makes for a very casual workplace.
Cons – As is common in DC, entry level staff overworked and underpaid for as long as they can stand it-promotions aren't common and turnover is high. Disconnect is natural between state and national staff, but could stand to be improved. Some favoritism with senior staff means that most will never be promoted- most junior level staff leave rather than see their careers stagnate.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't be afraid to give more responsibility to talented younger staff, especially in Events and Communications-they're in the trenches and have great ideas for growth. Don't silo knowledge. Put more people on the ground in the states!
