    I have been working at Teach For All

    Pros

    This organization is full of incredibly bright, dedicated, talented people. I feel lucky to work with such people, and have learned a lot from so many of them. The work is also really satisfying. The opportunity to travel internationally and work with organizations in these locations is really quite special. The staff are also generally empowered to lead their projects in a fairly autonomous way, which is good if you like working in that way.

    Cons

    There can be some very demanding periods of time, depending on the roles. Career growth is difficult, because many of the jobs are so specific - there's not really a clear path from one job to the next level up in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing to improve the organization.

    Pros

    Great group of people, very committed to the mission of educational equity all across the world, great opportunity to glimpse a wide array of contexts

    Cons

    Unclear organizational strategy, general sense of disconnect and siloed work teams, continuous environment of stress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourself more available to all levels of the organization, be very clear about how each member of the org is playing a role in carrying out org strategy

    I have been working at Teach For All as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very passionate about the mission and their jobs; everyone's very friendly and a pleasure to be around

    Cons

    Employees are spread a bit thin and are put in a lot of unnecesarily high-stress situations; a lot of micro-managing going on from the uppermost levels
