Cons

The pay was pretty much non existant

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You guys rocked, always encouraging the best out of us.

    I worked at Boy Scouts of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Scouting is a fantastic program that brings families together and helps youth develop their skills and interest. Executives get good exposure to many different aspects of society and opportunities to develop many skills. Some councils are better than others.

    Cons

    Complete disregard for work-life balance and executive's personal development. Fraudulent pursuit of goals (especially membership) are often encouraged by management. 60-80 hours per week at very low pay are the norm. Group-think mentality keeps getting the organization in trouble. Lacks innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect executives like partners rather than slaves.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
