Pros

Senior Leaders are great and effectively lead their teams which translates to high numbers and a growing council. The work week is M-Th, 8a- 5:30p and closed the week of Christmas through the New Year.

Cons

The CEO has very little people skills which transfers to the team causing low moral at times. It seems. Not all positions have the opportunity to see the mission at work, making it had to stand behind it. Some departments work 60 hours a week sometime w/o comp time or pay. Because this is a newly merged council and is considered to be a small council, the pay isn't great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior leaders should stand up for thier team more and address issues with the CEO directly, not ignore them. Doing so will make a more cohesive team and improve productivity which will be of great benefit to the council as a whole.

    Pros

    Well-known company. Always get a "ooh wow" when you say you work at Girl Scouts. The mission of building leadership characteristics in girls is great.

    Cons

    No one seemed very happy to be there. The office isn't lively at all. I always felt a disconnect between the company's mission and what actually takes place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember why Girl Scouts was started!

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
