I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You feel good about what you're doing (if you're not doing it for the money).
You get a nice education award at the end (except it's taxed as are your stipend checks so make sure to understand how to spend it if you want to avoid owing at the end of the year.)

Cons

I was a member of AmeriCorps state through a very disorganized non-profit. The service itself was good but dealing with the organization that I signed up through was pretty bad. Make sure to check out who you're going to be doing the service through before you sign up because it could make or break your year. Looks like the bigger names (City Year, etc.) have a better management system.

    Pros

    Great way to break into a career field. Flexible schedule (usually) and jobs available in many different areas.

    Low pay, often treated poorly due to AmeriCorps status. Also I did not receive much support from supervisors.
