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

    Pros

    The insight and skills you gain through TFA are so incredibly valuable, whether one decides to stay in education or not. Not to mention, it is an incredibly eye-opening experience that will challenge you in every way possible.

    Cons

    Working to close the education gap is a vocation and not just a job. Prepare to dedicate your life to your classroom while working in the corps.

    I worked at Teach for America part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Intensive professional development for aspiring school leaders.
    Quality of colleagues and systems for exchanging best practices.

    Cons

    Tendency to scapegoat organizational shortcomings on individual staff members.
    Poor compensation for time and effort -- overtime pay was misleading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many established circles with an already cliquish organization.
    Less emphasis on making everything seem "rigorous" and "elite" when it's only surface-level and leads to inefficient outcomes for all.
