I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Most non-management staff members are great. The girls that are served. Depending on the manager there may be some freedom for decisions and actions.

Cons

Very political and buddy-buddy. Male staff members are not made to feel very welcome. Lot's of water cooler gossip.

Advice to Management

Put the right people in the right jobs and trust them to do the job.

    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary for a nonprofit and excellent benefits; very flexible schedule; fun and relaxed office environment; great way to make connections in the community and network with other nonprofits; a good first job out of college

    Cons

    Lots of evening and weekend work; goals are unattainable; not a good job for anyone with a family because there is no work/life balance; no clear expectations but very intense pressure to meet goals; very little training; managers are unreliable

    Be more present and professional in the office

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Passionate, hard working staff and long-term volunteer base give credence to the cause. Supportive working enviornment and room for self-direction.

    Cons

    Organizational issues and un-focused management detract from a supportive working environment. Process-driven work practices are sluggish to change; and declining membership without a strong and effective response plan have resulted in high turnover.
