    Great colleagues, but a muddy process.

    I have been working at Boy Scouts of America

    Pros

    Colleagues are fun, energetic and dedicated. The mission of helping turn boys into leaders and productive citizens I find worthy and more rewarding than working for profit.

    Cons

    At times management can be balky when presented with logical reasons for compensation changes. Mixed messages between performance reviews and salary increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more nimble and take more risks with the program. Scouting doesn't need to be cool, it needs to be hot!

    I worked at Boy Scouts of America

    Pros

    Respect from community, nice benefits, enjoyable environment. Enjoyed working with volunteers and kids. Excellent training if you can get it in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    Long and irregular hours, high expectations with little rewards, managers who yell at employees and lie to them. Way too much emphasis on fund-raising and not enough on the kids themselves. The most common way to move up is to move around. Very hard to live in one city and advance with the scouts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying your execs so much and start paying your district execs what they are worth.
