I worked at Teach for America as an intern

Pros

Motivated, passionate, friendly staff. Thinks about corps/staff member satisfaction. Work that makes a difference. Reasonable benefits.

Cons

Lots of work... though it's what you make of it, how much you put into it. People here seem to work very hard. Just be mindful you get your rest and you keep yourself balanced.

    Pros

    They are incredibly organized and passionate about what they do. They take efficiency to a whole new level. They are incredibly selective, and take training you to do your job very seriously. Although it is a rigorous two years, they are there to troubleshoot and help you find solutions to many issues in the classroom.

    Cons

    They have been known to sacrifice corps members for the sake of maintaining relationships with establishments. Sacrifice one for the many mindset, I suppose. Sacrifice meaning that the level of support they give you might not be exactly what you need when the relationship with an employer or district is at stake. This was not frequent, but I've seen it happen. If you believe in the cause, though, I suppose you take these instances with the greater good in mind...

    Pros

    Smart people, flexible work arrangements, retirement matching, young people and social crowd. Great place to practice and fine tune your analysis and coaching skills.

    Cons

    Political and management with little experience. Often changing priorities based upon what the most recent HBR article reads. Hit or miss progress made in education.
