Very political, lacking strong leadership, non-trusting environment. In one word "Toxic".

I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Most non-management staff members are great. The girls that are served. Depending on the manager there may be some freedom for decisions and actions.

Cons

Very political and buddy-buddy. Male staff members are not made to feel very welcome. Lot's of water cooler gossip.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the right people in the right jobs and trust them to do the job.

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Passionate, hard working staff and long-term volunteer base give credence to the cause. Supportive working enviornment and room for self-direction.

    Cons

    Organizational issues and un-focused management detract from a supportive working environment. Process-driven work practices are sluggish to change; and declining membership without a strong and effective response plan have resulted in high turnover.

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    within each department there is a sense of commoditary

    Cons

    Lost count of how many times p/t staff was let go because "lack program funding" then due to "restructuring of the organization" p/t staff is asked back but to reduced hours and let go again a few months later

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your program budgets in order and hire accordingly...especially with your part-time staff
