    I have been working at Teach for America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are intelligent, passionate and incredibly hard-working. Lots of autonomy and opportunities to innovate with little oversight from management.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of work-life balance. It's very common for people in my role to work 70-100 hours per week during our busy season, with no overtime pay.
