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

Pros

Payed Positions at very start. Great professional development to assist along the way and awesome networking events for whatever field you choose to stay in.

Cons

Work life balance can be a bit overwhelming. Teach For America is more of a contracter therefore, your dealing with this agency along with school /district rules.
