    403b matching; PTO allowances; flexible schedule are amazing benefits offered by Teach For America. The recent switch in insurance has been difficult, but now includes vision and dental.

    The insurance is inexpensive and they match 403(b) contributions.

    No perks really. Sub=par compared to business world. About average in the gov/social sector.

    Health insurance covers whole family with incredible plan-levels at very minimal employee-contribution, which is incredible for families. PTO is incredibly generous - approx 4 weeks per year (which includes the week between Christmas and New Years) plus school holidays, which then increases to 5 weeks after 3 years of service. Primary caregiver leave is 8 weeks, then short term disability make kick in for another four weeks at 60% pay. Retirement plan is a 403b match plan, which matches your contributions up to 5% of your pre-tax salary.

    Benefits are very good and very inexpensive, they keep costs down. Good match on 401k, easy commuting benefits.

    When you contract it becomes legally, it is good things & the worst thing is a man bound in limits.

    Provided through School rather than TFA directly, can be confusing to navigate since peers are all at different schools

    The benefits package is definitely one of the perks that keeps me working in TFA.
