No opinion of CEO

I worked at Teach for America part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It is a reliable organization with expected employee respect/benefits, and the people are invested in a great movement. It is also rewarding work as it is a service organization.

Cons

This could be a pro or a con depending on the person, but the workplace is a culture where most people work very, very hard and stress themselves out.

    I have been working at Teach for America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience. i would highly recommend TFA to any recent college grad who is looking to advance his or her career opportunities while having a positive impact

    Cons

    Can be intense and stressful. The experience is definitely a walk in the park, but I don't think that is a reason to shy away from it.

    I have been working at Teach for America full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
