The Money give is acceptable but it’s my great. Teacher growth is also a focus.
No time given back and they expect to control you time when you are on the clock.

There are no pros at all
I am a former employee of this organization. This organization is horrible. The three months I spent here were the worst times of my life. I have never seen people more disrespectful and unsupportive than at Achievement First. When I applied to work here, I was promised that I would teach social studies, but they ended up putting me in another subject, which I lacked knowledge in, so I struggled to teach it. They blamed it on my inability to adapt, but it was them who put me in a subject that I lacked knowledge in. I would also like to add on that I was forced to work overtime everyday, as in staying in the building until 10 pm. On average, I would cone to work at 6:30 am and stay until 7pm, but on certain days, I would stay until 10pm. In the middle of my employment here, they were saying that I was uncommitted. What did they expect? I was put in a subject I had zero interest in, and they have the audacity to say that I'm "UnCoMiTTEd". Eventually, I was terminated. By the then, my physical and mental health took a huge toll, but I was also very happy the nightmare ended. Personally, I think being smoked and yelled at by RDCs (abbreviation for Recruit Division Commanders) for 10 weeks was far more enjoyable than working here. And to put a cherry on top, the health insurance is terrible.3
