Pros

A very good job to find out what you are made of. TFA will test your limits emotionally, intellectually, and physically. This is a commitment that should not be taken lightly.

Cons

Long hours, low pay, and being disconnected from your family. There is no way to predict how your TFA experience will be until you are actually employed by a school.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to model instructional techniques when communicating information to adults.

    Pros

    You work with smart, motivated colleagues. You feel good about the work you are doing and the contributions you are making each day.

    Cons

    There is little to no respect when it comes to priorities outside of work. The expectation is that you work 60+ hours a week and commit your entire life to the cause. They also have a strong pipeline of talent and aren't motivated to develop current employees. Everyone is replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with employees at all levels of the business and find ways to develop and maintain the talent you have.

  2. Awesome
