I worked at Teach for America part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It is a reliable organization with expected employee respect/benefits, and the people are invested in a great movement. It is also rewarding work as it is a service organization.

Cons

This could be a pro or a con depending on the person, but the workplace is a culture where most people work very, very hard and stress themselves out.

    Pros

    Great experience. i would highly recommend TFA to any recent college grad who is looking to advance his or her career opportunities while having a positive impact

    Cons

    Can be intense and stressful. The experience is definitely a walk in the park, but I don't think that is a reason to shy away from it.
