    Pros

    Colleagues are authentic and positive. You never feel like someone is looking over your shoulder. Not a "got you" culture in any way. The curriculum is sensational and can change the world!

    Cons

    You only get paid when you work and only when full-time staff can't take on the assignment. It makes the position less than part-time. This is NOT an ideal position if you require a consistent income to make due.
