Former Employee - District Executive in Allentown, PA
Former Employee - District Executive in Allentown, PA

I worked at Boy Scouts of America full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Making a difference, ok training, great volunteers

Cons

too political, 1970's style managers - Corporate Culture is way of date. Pay is way too low for the zillions of hours that you will work. Be Prepared.....to not have much of life and to work for a micro-manager that talks a good talk. Anyone that stays with the org for too long is to be considered inept and broken

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be Prepared....to be in the business of becoming much smaller

    Former Contractor - Dining Hall Staff/Steward

    I worked at Boy Scouts of America as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    We got to meet kids from all over the country and socialize with them. On our time off we could enjoy everything the camp had to offer.

    Cons

    We were often over worked and under paid. They started overcrowding the camp and didn't hire enough staff to run the camp efficiently. the majority of the summer we worked 16hr shifts with maybe an hour off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the staff better or hire more help.
