No Work/Life balance at all
Teacher (Former Employee) –  New JerseyJanuary 27, 2016
Expected to work at all times. Weekends were not really weekends.You are always on call and there is always something that needs to be "submitted". Often spoken to in a passive aggressive, condescending, and disrespectful manner. Concerns are dismissed and used against you. You're told to take the disrespect and look at it as "feedback". Overall, an exhausting and unhappy place to work. If a personal life is important to you, this is not the place to work.

at Uncommon schools, teachers are changing history – from the way they look each scholar in the eye with respect when shaking hands in the morning to the way they approach lesson planning with deep rigor and genuine joy in mind.

Not for Everyone...
Lead Teacher (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJJune 21, 2013
Gives you what you need to be in administration.

No work life/balance. Mainly cater to TFA. You may hate teaching after working there and move on to another career.
