I have been working at Girl Scouts USA as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

They are a great organization, with the values that young girls need in this society. They teach girls to be strong, independent, and self-confident. I highly recommend working for this organization if you can.

Cons

The only downside that I can really think of is that if you work at summer camp, you lose your free time for that summer. You get one day a week off, but it is hard to do anything spectacular in a day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you do
