Wonderful non-profit.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Teach for America as an intern

ProsMotivated, passionate, friendly staff. Thinks about corps/staff member satisfaction. Work that makes a difference. Reasonable benefits.

ConsLots of work... though it's what you make of it, how much you put into it. People here seem to work very hard. Just be mindful you get your rest and you keep yourself balanced.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
