    "Less salary"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Teach for America

    Pros

    Good working culture and good management support to complete assigned tasks on time. Good infrastructure provided so that working becomes easier. Company has got a very good campus.

    Cons

    Less salary. Company was in huge financial debt which mainly happened due to the acquisition of German wind maker RE power. Company was not able to provide the salary on time and incentives was not given for many years.
