Informative but not so useful
Expansion Intern (Former Employee) –  Bangalore, IndiaSeptember 30, 2017
The culture of the job was welcoming enough, but the work being done there felt somewhat out of touch with the requirements of Bangalore-area schools. Many teachers and administrators in the area seemed to resent the structure and process that the organisation adhered to.

Excellent place to work for those who have their hearts in the right place. The work in itself is quite challenging, but the overall experience is worth it, especially if you love teaching and enjoy being around children/youth. They make the whole process even more fulfilling.

Lack of training

Fellow (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraMarch 9, 2017
A typical day at work looks like a lot of field work at the school and community. I have learned a lot about the education system in India and about how the low-income schools operate in India. The management at Teach for India is very approachable and promotes open communication. The hardest part of the job is juggling between the responsibilities of Teach for India as a Fellow and the responsibilities of a school as an educator. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get opportunities to interact with and educate 40 little humans and find a lot of purpose in the job that you are doing.

Fellow (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraMarch 5, 2017
TFI is one of the most challenging grounds to show and hone your skills. Apart from the tedious work of planning, teaching, coaching for extracurricular activities, work involves collaboration with all stakeholders. Integrate as much as possible with the kids' lifestyles and work to put them on the path of excellent education.
Pros
See the impact of your work in front of your eyes
Cons
Needs dedication, lone warrior, lot of decisions

Work culture is highly impactful and purpose oriented.
Pros
You feel good about your work.
Cons
Long work hours and impact on health
