Great experience, but too political and low pay.

    Pros

    Extremely rewarding.
    Coworkers become a family.

    Cons

    Very political, a lot of brown nosing will get you places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective about camp administration. They have weeded out some great people who genuinely cared and replaced them with low-quality employees

    Pros

    Ok for an entry level job. Good benefits. Gives you a true look at the harsh realities of the real world.

    Cons

    They don’t care for your personal time. Long and ridiculous hours, including working on Sundays. Yes, Sundays. Poor opportunities for advancement. Awful upper management. Only care about raising money to pay bills. Could care less about the values of the program itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to inspire your staff by showing that you actually care about the Scouting rather than just the numbers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
