    Pros

    People come to work for the scouts because of what they believe to be good about scouting. They've had great experiences in their childhood from scouting. But, when they come to work at the organization, they find a different place.

    Cons

    Leadership is nonexistent. Top manager believes in encouraging conflict because it "brings out the best" in people. There is very little trust within the organization. It is a mentality of survival. Strategic planning is not understood. Asking questions intimidates and is discouraged. Ideas for improvement are arbitrarily shot down.
    Are we having any fun, yet?

    Pros

    Helping kids, families, and young adults grow and learn great American values lost in a time of violence and video games

    Cons

    Organization restructures every 5-10 years. Mergers typically don't go smoothly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more clarity on the direction, and 5 year plan, of the organization.
