    I worked at Teach for America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The vibe is definitely hardworking - leaning towards type A - but still cool and collected, so it makes for a trusting environment. It's also work you can feel good about, has a strong feedback system, diverse, very very flexible working conditions at National HQ and supportive management. It's the gold standard for nonprofits, but be prepared to work long and hard.

    Cons

    You might end up making less than similar positions in corporate America.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the sheer amount of flexibility made some teams feel disconnected from each other.
