    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Lot's of good benefits and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Not sure the right people are in place in middle management to take the movement to the next level. The current philosophy is to simply promote from within, thereby bringing up the same mindset as what has been in Scouting for the last century.

    Advice to Management

    If Scouting does not find a way to become relevant to the youth of today, then I'm not sure if Scouting will be around for another century. Some of the latest Merit Badges, such as robotics, welding, and the other new ones, are a great start. But, it's time to work to be relevant to the youth of today and I'm not sure middle management is in place to lead that. Need new ideas and fresh thoughts...not the same old thing. Also, listen to the youth in the program and take to heart what they are saying.


  2. "Great career path---for a select few."
