    I have been working at Teach For India full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Lots of rigorous work that translates into complex job roles leading to high professional growth.
    2. Work flexibility - the focus is on getting work done whether you get it done in office or your couch!
    3. Your work colleagues will be some of the smartest and most diverse group you will meet.
    4. The overarching focus is always on cooperation and collaboration rather than competition - builds a healthy work culture!
    5. If you show ownership and initiative you will always be rewarded!

    Cons

    Like all workplaces, TFI does have some cons :

    1. Definitely need more solid systems and structures in place especially related to HR/Finance/Admin policies!
    2. There is a tendency to spend more time in planning/strategizing on how to do things rather than focusing equally on quality execution.
    3. This is not a place for the faint-hearted - if you want to do well here - you have to work hard, show initiative and be willing to go above and beyond your job role and not necessarily be someone's favourite :)

    Advice to Management

    1. Balance out the thinking vs doing!
    2. Be open to taking some audacious and bold risks to take the org to new heights!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Teach For India (Mumbai) in March 2013.

    Interview

    First telephonice, then HR, then mgt interview. Telephonic was basic test on communication skills. HR was more about the organisation fit. Mgt interiview was with hiring manager to assess fit with team. Finally wrapped up with a tel call with hr on salary and paperwork.
