    I worked at Girl Scouts USA part-time

    Pros

    Company provides guidance for lessons plans, but leaders have the creative ability to tailor their meetings to fit within the larger GS goals

    Friendly co-workers with the same goals that you have-- to instill confidence in girls in a fun and warm environment

    Field trips!

    Cons

    Under-trained, inexperienced, or unintelligible managers -- often the managers don't posses some of the qualities they are trying to teach the girls!

    Some internal disorganization between managers and workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Girl Scout leaders should be intelligent, creative, and motivated. Attitudes and perceptions trickle down, so hire appropriately!
