    I have been working at Teach for America full-time (more than an year)

    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.
