    Straining work, little managerial support, have separate expectations with local district.

    I have been working at Teach for America full-time

    Pros

    - Positive outlook and relentless dedication by staffers and organization to further their mission
    - Always people available to give support or help if requested
    - Very reflective organization that values feedback and improvement at almost every level

    Cons

    - Expectations seem daunting at first
    - Not great a communication
    - Training will not fully prepare you for teaching, but nothing really could

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be genuinely reflective and react to how corps members are feeling and doing - also, continue to try and connect the work of corps members so that the feeling of a movement can become more palpable
