I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The organization is actively trying to make the ways of work, culture and state of the business better by having the hard conversations. They are incredibly flexible with schedules and the hierarchical structure has been flattened. With the changes, things are getting done faster and more collaboratively. The project based structure allows you to work with different people and change your work regularly.

Cons

The environment, while changing, is slow to progress and the old culture of "mother may I" and no empowerment still exists a bit. With the changes, comes time and while, I believe the organization will be running fantastically in a few years, it's going to take some time to get us there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of your own way and empower your people.
