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

    Pros

    TFA is a great organization. The salaries are outrageous. The time off is ridiculous. The amount of time and effort they put into developing each employee is amazing. "Most" people that work there are very nice folks. Everyone has at least a BA degree, they are huge on education. It's a great place to work if you value professional development, and life-work balance, some positions allow you to work from home

    Cons

    Everyone is underpaid. As they are a non-profit. Most of the folks in management have no prior work experience at all. This limits their capacity to manage fairly. Management sometimes acts like a cult, meaning if you don't fit because x, y, or z, they'll find a way to make you quit. Rarely they fire anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please expose your most valuable talent to real corporate life experience. Management has a very limited vision on how to handle employees that are not your typical "star" employees.

    I worked at Teach for America

    Pros

    You get your students loans deferred and 10,000 educational credit. You can get connections if you are outgoing about it.

    Cons

    If you consider yourself diverse for any reason, Teach for America is not the place to be. Although they claim diversity as a core value, they do not practice that. Don't take my word for it apply, get in, and see how frustrated you get with the constant ignorance from other CMs up to upper level staff.
