    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Knowing that the work you do ultimately will provide a young man or women opportunities that they otherwise most likely would never have a chance to experience is very satisfying. Being able to work with adult volunteers and other community leaders who are passionate about the service they provide to help the programs of Scouting provide a great sense of pride in the work you do.

    Cons

    Frequent evening and weekend work assignments coupled with the normal need to relocate when promotional opportunity occurs, every 3-4 years can lead to a high level of stress for self and family.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the employee performance measuring system and provide employee with annual continuing education opportunities. Implement a formal comp time program to help offset the long hours normally incurred.
