2. I learned a lot about the system.
3. Management is management.

Teacher (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 20, 2018
If working for the transfer schools, it is highly stressful. Students have low attendance and the policies to practice seem very counterproductive. Admin is not on the same page as to which direction they would like staff to be on.

Great opportunity to learn and earn an MSE while you are working. They do offer lots of support, especially with job placement and seem concerned with retaining teachers. Its not TFA or the Fellows

Highly intelligent, creative and passionate professionals
Human Resources (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 31, 2017
The organization is filled with some of the brightest minds who care deeply about making a real impact on education equity. There is a strong culture of inquiry and innovation; listening to schools and moving quickly to address their needs with creative solutions. Organization has undergone rapid growth in past 5 years and leadership team has shifted significantly in past year as some highly tenured leaders moved on to lead other organizations; almost everyone on current leadership team was promoted from within...they are very open to staff feedback and supporting career development. Hours can be long at times as there is always so much happening...
Pros
opportunity to make real difference in public education, work with people who will challenge you & help you grow professionally, generous benefits package & highly competitive compensation
Cons
sometimes can move too quickly
