I worked at Teach for America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Real world experience in management, self control, pushing yourself to your limits, incredible rewards in helping under achieving schools turn around their classrooms.

Cons

You are pretty much on your own in a poorly managed school. If you don't want to be their, or aren't a self started, it will show.

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

    Pros

    Good way to jumpstart a career in education. Motivated and passionate people working toward an important cause. Full benefits/salary as a teacher.

    Cons

    TFA should provide greater training for its corps members both before they start teaching and while they are in their placement school. There is more of an emphasis on recruitment and not nearly enough on professional development or investment in the teachers.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
