    I worked at TNTP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    smart, passionate people at all levels, and a strong HR-focused culture with good communication

    Cons

    Expectation of 60 hour work weeks, often more. The operations teams (IT, Finance) were run by C-level incompetents, so the teams were always a pain to work with despite some very good people in them, and it was frequently unavoidable to have to deal with their lack of top-level leadership. It seemed that the CEO, despite being such a smart and caring person, lacked a mind for choosing operational leaders.

    Advice to Management

    hire a COO to fix all the ops problems

    Pros

    Some very intelligent people work here and you will likely find at least a couple of people you wiill learn something new from.

    Cons

    The focus and goals of management seemed to shift on a monthly basis. The strict focus on ideas and future planning left little room for management to communicate basic guidelines. All employees have to work a 50 hour work week at a minimum. Yet they claim that they want employees to have a "work life balance".
