    I worked at Teach First full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My colleagues at Teach First were excellent. They are smart, committed, and fun. Many are Teach First Ambassadors and there is a lot of youthful enthusiasm at this organisation. There is lots of passion for the Teach First mission.

    Cons

    In my experience, there was a regular lack of clarity from the leadership. There was a constant revolving door of employees-- including leadership. I also found their hiring decisions inconsistent-- sometimes there was a consensus that an excellent hire or promotion had been made and other times (more frequent than I would have wished), my colleagues and I were astounded by the appointment of inexperienced individuals who were offered roles beyond their capabilities or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance is a serious issue that the organisation does not seem committed to tackling in a meaningful way.
