I have been working at Teach for America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people are intelligent, passionate and incredibly hard-working. Lots of autonomy and opportunities to innovate with little oversight from management.

Cons

Extreme lack of work-life balance. It's very common for people in my role to work 70-100 hours per week during our busy season, with no overtime pay.

    Be more understanding of what the CM's are going through and strive to put them before your other duties.
