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

Pros

driven people, talented staff. some of the brightest colleagues I've ever worked with were at TFA. everyone is deeply committed to and passionate about the organization's mission and goals.

Cons

talent and results are often recognized, not always rewarded with promotions or raises. decisions occasionally felt like they were made in a top-down fashion rather than in a collaborative one.

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

    Pros

    Offers a great jumpstart to college students looking to gain incredible professional and life experience. After the corps TFA offers plenty of paths to advance in education as a teacher or administrator; or at the company as an employee; or through graduate school programs and other professional opportunities.

    Cons

    REALLY HARD to be first-year teacher in an urban environment...not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Consider focusing solely on grooming career teachers as the organization matures.


  2. "A transformational Experience that is based on the individual not the organization"
