    I have been working at Teach for America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are intelligent, passionate and incredibly hard-working. Lots of autonomy and opportunities to innovate with little oversight from management.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of work-life balance. It's very common for people in my role to work 70-100 hours per week during our busy season, with no overtime pay.

    The people working for TFA are very intelligent. Its nice to work with other people in a team when you trust their intelligence and critical thinking abilities.

    Cons

    Some jobs have crazy hours
    Working with TFA kind of invades your life. It can be hard to separate home/social life and work life, luckily the people you are working with are pretty great.
