    Pros

    Very organized and efficient for a non-profit organization. In general people seemed to enjoy working at Teach For America, and they have a strong mission.

    Cons

    The organization might be too hierarchical for some interested in working for a non-profit.

    Pros

    With one region: experience was great, felt valued and got developed. Took on stretch projects and felt pushed. Got great coaching and management.

    Cons

    Lack of structure. Manager quality varies TREMENDOUSLY. Most managers inexperienced or ineffective. TFA changes "strategies" every quarter and none of them seemed particularly effective. TFA is now obsessed with "leadership" and "stories" more than they care about results anymore. This was frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get clear on what your CORPS MEMBER classroom level goals are- corps members are still largely ineffective.
    2. Better management training for ALL managers, particularly brand new ones.
