    I worked at Girl Scouts USA for more than 4 years

    Pros

    They have good benefits and you get to meet some really nice volunteer.

    Cons

    I worked for this organization for a number of years; I've watch the CEO, CFO and the HR department treat the employees like slaves and belittle employees in front of other employees. The will making people choose between own children and the organization. I’ve heard the CEO, CFO say negative things about some of the employees and has even lied them. If you have a complaint you can’t go to the HR because they will dismiss...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA

    Pros

    Average sick day and vacation acquisition, but Girl Scouts offered a nice selection of paid holidays. Low level employees were usually extremely helpful, knowledgeable and kind. Girl Scouts invested in decent office equipment and technical improvements. Offices were usually nice, clean and well appointed.

    Cons

    Girl Scouts had extremely high staff turnover, not only in entry-level positions, but even at the VP level and above. Senior management seemed more concerned with vanity (constantly giving themselves new titles, for instance) and about petty image issues rather than the organization's financial troubles. Sr. management do not promote from within. Pay was horrible, benefits were cut, and employees were encouraged to vote...

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should make a sincere and concerted effort to change corporate culture to stem the hemorrhaging of employees. Employees should have a reasonable expectation that salaries and benefits will remain consistent for a year. Senior management should recruit and listen to younger employees, as much of the program focus seems dated.

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA

    Pros

    The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles offers good benefits, a decent starting salary, hardly any overtime, and most of the people there are very nice.

    Cons

    Boring office work, bad management. They hired me knowing that I needed extra training in certain skills, then dismissed me within three weeks for not having those skills, without giving me the training that they promised me.

    Advice to Management

    Do not make promises to new hires if you are not willing to keep them. It shows a lack of decency and integrity. If you promise to train them then do so, don't expect them to know what they need to know if you do follow through on your promise to train them.
