Pros

Outstanding professional development, have had some great managers, expectations are clear, results-driven staff, meaningful work, colleagues are smart and dedicated.

Cons

Work/life balance can be challenging, often when settling into a new role. Culture (varies by team) is intense and sometimes a turn-off. Organization is growing and is having a structural identity crisis. Not sure the pay is competitive and raises have been small.

    Culture-oriented, and for those passionate about Education Reform. Not for the faint of heart. Teaching is difficult.
