    I worked at Achievement First full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing, dedicated, intelligent peers who are both passionate about education and extremely productive to work with.

    A very results-oriented and data-driven culture. They work with the end in mind, and produce more high-quality results in a month than most organizations do in a year.

    Cons

    An intense work load and a an occasional focus on effort and productivity with less focus on the big picture and strategic use of time and resources.

    I worked at Achievement First full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of support from coach and leadership team overall. Very friendly staff. There is opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Low retention rate for teachers. Poor balance between work and personal life. Not enough flexibility for teachers to be creative in their craft. Things are constantly changing, usually at the teacher's expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The network needs to provide teachers with more flexibility to be creative and do what works for their personal teaching style and classroom. Teachers also need more prep time throughout the day. The students need to be children and have more unstructured play time.
