Former Employee – worked at Teach for America
Pros – Good benefits, flexible schedule, good time off.
Cons – Lack of accountability from senior management (i.e. no consequences if one does not hit goals), Lack of a vision for the organization beyond recruitment of teachers, Lack of professionalism demonstrated by senior leadership. As a corps member, the job was great (which is what you read on these reviews); however, working for the organization did not advance professional growth as other jobs have in Ed Reform non profits.
Advice to Senior Management – Be clear about your expectations, hold teachers and staff members accountable for goals, set a meaningful vision, cut down on the number of roles in the organization - there are too many layers in the organization, and build teacher retention as a priority so our kids can keep good teachers longer.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
