Pros

It's hard. Everyday is different. Intellectually stimulating. Nice to be part of similarly aged group of people committed to the same cause. It's nice to know that you're making a difference in people's lives.

Cons

It's hard. It's exhausting. You bring work home a lot. Sometime you may feel unappreciated and on your own.
