    I worked at Boy Scouts of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work close with to days youth and tomorrows leaders. The Boy Scout Program as a whole is a wonderful asset to today's youth. Good benefits, though this has declined over the past several years.

    Cons

    The company has drifted away from what being a Boy Scout is all about. Employees are required to work long hours with no regard to their family's. The "Good Old Boys's Club" is alive and well in this organization. Ever constant changes in policy and inconstant direction and communication from the top down, leaves it's work force forever wondering exactly what it is they are supposed to be doing. BSA shows one face to the public and a completely different face to it's work force. There is a reason it's called "Going to the Dark Side" when you become a professional Scouter. Just like all big business these days, it's not about the program it's about the dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for your employees and understand that they have family's too. It's wonderful to give support to our Volunteer's but when our family's suffer for it... it's hard to truly love your job.
