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

Pros

It's hard. Everyday is different. Intellectually stimulating. Nice to be part of similarly aged group of people committed to the same cause. It's nice to know that you're making a difference in people's lives.

Cons

It's hard. It's exhausting. You bring work home a lot. Sometime you may feel unappreciated and on your own.

    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.


  2. "Fantastic, Life Changing Development"
