    Pros

    Helping kids, families, and young adults grow and learn great American values lost in a time of violence and video games

    Provide more clarity on the direction, and 5 year plan, of the organization.

    I have been working at Boy Scouts of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good job experience if short term. Quick sand for long term, will mire you down and suck the life out of you. Good perks for executive staff.
    Fantastic use of marketing to "sell the image" of wholesomeness.

    Cons

    Very sexist towards females within corporate environment. Hourly employees expected to put in overtime in exchange for comp time, no paid overtime. Salaried employees expect to work A LOT of hours. Corporate environment "Good Old Boys' Club". Direct quote from a top executive "Better to ask forgiveness than permission." The last in regard to copyright infringements.

    Advice to Management

    None. They do a great job keeping their real image under cover.
