    I worked at Teach for America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility in non-teaching positions, highly educated and motivated colleagues.

    Cons

    The organization fundamentally works against the teaching profession by pressuring the best teachers to leave the classroom and work in their office; the organization takes new, barely minted teachers and asked them to be the authority on teaching for even newer and more clueless teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all staff have taught, make sure all people who serve as advisors to teachers have more than just two years of teaching experience
