    I have been working at College Track

    Pros

    The work environment leaves a lot of room for innovation and creativity. The people are just as passionate about working with high school youth as much as the next person. Most importantly, there is ethic and moral value that gets passed along to today's young people.

    Cons

    The company is growing to past in scale. There is a lack of infrastructure to meet the size of the organization. With growth, the direct service employees are not being compensated or appreciated for the long hours and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build the plane before you fly it. Look out for those who helped you build it.

    Pros

    Great mission. Incredible students. You get to work with smart, talented people. I have learned so much from my colleagues and my manager. There's a work hard, play hard culture. Rare to find an org with such genuine, committed and fun people. Best org I've worked for to date.

    Cons

    Scaling too quickly and there's growing pains. Systems and processes can be a lot more efficient. Very fast paced culture - which could be good or bad depending on your personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and focus on building infrastructure. Prioritize quality over scale. Relationships and trust among students and staff are the secret sauce

    I worked at College Track full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The students are great and the program's mission is good.

    Cons

    TFA program alum were given preference in all positions simply because the CEO is an alum himself. Poor overall management. Site staff were treated like peasants during fundraising events. Salaries are not very good considering that you have to work until 8 or 9pm on weekdays, and a lot of Saturdays.
