    Pros

    You will get to take on projects at Room to Read that you would never dream of at larger, more traditional non-profits.

    Cons

    Room to Read is for the passionate and ambitious so if you are not looking for continuous challenges to solve it can be stressful.

    I have been working at Room to Read

    Pros

    Fantastic colleagues, great travel opportunities, if you love this work there aren't many places like it in San Francisco. High standards for quality of work, work ethic.

    Cons

    Very little mentorship (b/c there are very few truly senior people on staff), limited career growth. Can be very demanding depending on your team/position. You're expected to perform at 100% all the time.
