Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

It has noble intentions and seeks to use data more than other educational organizations.

Cons

It is hypocritical and spends more money on fancy fundraisers than sorely needed resources in the schools.

Advice to Management

Ask corps members what problems they face on a day-to-day basis. Stop favoring corps members just because they come from a certain background or because they are the most vocal person in the room. Acknowledge and support quiet leaders.
