    I worked at Teach for America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    *very intentional and values-driven organization
    *competitive compensation for non-profit organization
    * strong benefits package
    * hardworking, dedicated, fun co-workers
    * great alumni and staff network and opportunity to learn from very talented, caring people with experiences in a variety of for-profits and non-profits
    * flexible work hours (long hours, but can work remotely for many national team roles)
    * opportunities for professional development and taking on big jobs early in one's career

    Cons

    * long work hours - everyone is dedicated to their work and many are young team members without families so sometimes tricky to find balance or you feel like you don't want to say no (although organization is committed to providing tools and resources that support this)
    * going through organizational transition between regional and national teams so staff experience and strength of your manager / professional development may differ based on specific team
    * if you are on the national team, may operate in a very virtual way, include several communication loops and checkpoints with a variety of stakeholders before rolling out big projects, and/or have lots of national travel (this could be a pro or con depending on what you are looking for and your work style but good to know)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I respect the transparency and intentionality with which the most senior staff members operate. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on staff, and would love to return to staff again if I find an aligned opportunity. As I indicated in my exit interview, I think it would be worthwhile to dedicate more organizational resources to the staff experience and more consistently retaining and developing staff members who have been on the team for a while, particularly given organizational shifts
