    Girl Scouts USA (2006) Internship to Permanent Employment

    Recruitment, Marketing & Communications Director (Former Employee) Modesto, CA

    ProsFriendly atmosphere, family-like work environment, room for upward movement, training courses provided at no cost & definite learning experience provided for those who are eager to move up the corporate non-profit ladder. It was a great place to work that allowed me to obtain a wealth of information & wear multiple hats - gaining above average experience for the length of time i was employed. Awesome benefits & flexibility. A lot of opportunity to get involved on a volunteer level. Solid mission & values.

    ConsWorking at a non-profit sometimes doesn't allow you the room to put into play programs or ideas/creativity you would like to due to budgetary constraints.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I got to meet a lot of people in the community and attend a lot of community events

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should offer more internships to college students, it would be a great advantage to both sides.

    Wonderful, supportive, mission-driven organization

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe culture at Girl Scouts, Arizona Cactus-Pine, is wonderfully supportive with a consistent, passionate vision provided by the CEO. The quality of employees and co-workers is excellent, with dedicated, talented people filling the organization. There is also a high level of management commitment to personal and professional development of employees at every level.

    ConsThe expectation is that each employee be focused and committed to the organization and the mission and do what it takes to complete the task at hand. This results in a high level of energy and time required. Luckily, almost everyone is high-energy and as passionate as the CEO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! It's a great, exciting environment!
