Pros

Some very intelligent people work here and you will likely find at least a couple of people you wiill learn something new from.

Cons

The focus and goals of management seemed to shift on a monthly basis. The strict focus on ideas and future planning left little room for management to communicate basic guidelines. All employees have to work a 50 hour work week at a minimum. Yet they claim that they want employees to have a "work life balance".

    Pros

    TNTP is the most prestigious organization in the country working to ensure that poor and minority students get access to the most effective teachers. This organization is innovative and smart. TNTPers take tremendous pride in their work. They are a collegial group. Even top leadership is open and accessible and generous with their. This is an organization focused on human capital and they practice what they preach!

    Cons

    TNTP is not for everyone. People work on rigorous time lines and anywhere from a minimum of 50 hours to around 80 hours a week. You also work on multiple projects at a time and if you thought you were good in your previous role ... you will get to TNTP and know just how much better you can and need to get! TNTP is a place where people work hard and are continually pushed to get better.

    I have been working at TNTP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, incredibly smart people, everyone wants to do the right thing for their staff and the students we serve.

    Cons

    Culture of perfectionism and sometimes challenging business environment can mean a lot of hard work without seeing the impact you'd like to see.
