    I worked at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time

    Pros

    The level of passion from fellow teachers is great. Students are often eager to learn. Good food catered.

    Cons

    It's their way or the highway. And good luck striking a work-life balance. Very demanding with little time baked in the day to prep. Student treatment needs to be revisited. Needs more racial diversity-- how could you not realize the problems with banning headscarves (to name just one example)?

    Advice to Management

    Teachers are spread way too thin between duties and lesson planning. The training felt less like a preparation for teaching, and more like a time to align teachers on their way of doing things. By the end of it, I was not confident in my ability to write a lesson. Restructure certain hierarchies-- content and classroom management ought not be separate.

    Supremely qualified, effective and nurturing upper-management. I'm constantly inspired by the talent and dedication of the people at this organization. Everyone puts their hearts and souls into helping SA students and schools.

    Cons

    The unfair negative press about these excellent schools can be disheartening.
