    Current Employee - Program Specialist in Bettendorf, IA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free reign of your position and opportunity for creativity Work hours are semi-flexible Great mission

    Cons

    Limited direction but high expectations Very limited work/life balance Many nights, weekends, and unpaid overtime Large disconnect between upper management and lower management Much resistance from leaders due to high turn over and constant state of change. Constant work environment of urgency Little to no opportunity for professional growth and advancement

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is not a position but a state of mind. When you have councils fairly small number of employees, large decisions should be discussed and decided on as a whole. This would empower those who have to carry out your decisions to have pride in completing them.

      I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The work/life flexibility is great at GSUSA. Work from home/telecommuting really helps. Mission to help girls is inspiring and overall a great group of friendly people that I enjoy working with.

      Cons

      Organization can be confusing and hard to understand the responsibilities/tasks of each department. Have been here over a year and I'm still unclear of certain positions/departments and what they are doing exactly.
