In at the deep end
Mathematics Teacher (Former Employee) –  Leicester, Leicestershire15 July 2017
Your life will become teaching and teaching will become your life. Not necessarily a bad thing if you are passionate about your teaching career, but you may forget who you are outside of the classroom.
Do not mistake Teach First for a stepping stone into a corporate career; I would only recommend this scheme to people who actually want to go into teaching. Teach First are not supportive of those who choose to leave education afterwards.
Pros
Quickly gain a lot of experience, get paid while getting qualified
Cons
Long hours, very intense, no work-life balance in the first year

Flexible place to work but limited progression
University Recruiter (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London30 April 2019
Great people, culture and vision of organisation but limited progression for more senior jobs. High workload at certain times of the year and often disparity across the organisation.
Pros
Flexible working hours and ability to work from home
Cons
Long hours and heavy workloads at times
