    I worked at NYC Teaching Fellows full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Quick route into teaching if you don't mind being told what to do with no choices.

    Cons

    Badly managed, inefficient. They tell you it's a free Masters but it isn't. You will have to pay at least 13,000 for the Masters and all the certification tests and you are shackled to their restrictions about where you can and can't work.

    I have been working at NYC Teaching Fellows for more than a year

    Pros

    Free grad school, you'll make friends, a community of former fellows who often hire other fellows.

    Cons

    Coursework is not at all applicable to the job, PST is just to weed out those who don't want to be teachers, the first summer is basically pointless because you'll find out that everything they told you is either a lie or not applicable for the job, sketchy liaisons within the universities, no support after the first few months.
