    Pros

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

    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 worked at Teach for America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    + Talented and passionate people.
    + Everyone is on the same page regarding the mission. Completely selfless leadership.
    + Although everyone works incredibly hard, the work life balance is pretty strong. There are weekends and evenings from time to time but they are manageable.

    Cons

    - TFA is fast paced and high stakes. It can be emotionally exhausting fighting an uphill battle, which the organization is doing by trying to eliminate educational inequity.
