    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits including health insurance, PTO and flexibility.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri -Upper management needs to spend a few days (weeks) with those working with the volunteers. Shadow them to really get an understanding of what they are doing Day in and day out. Spend time with everyone working directly with programs, from volunteers, to portions, community outreach and customer service. This way informed and educated decisions can be made for everyone.

      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.
