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

    Pros

    Professional development/training to fresh out of college students without strong corporate background. A great place to challenge yourself-- you will be thrown into a place with little to no structure and forced to create systems/structure that works for you and your students. Not recommended for everyone.

    Cons

    There may be truth to the claim that TFA expanded too quickly and is now experiencing the pains of having grown too fast without a concrete plan. Also, there is very little diversity despite being a progressive non-profit organization.
