    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to get to work with the girls, it can be a great job. There are some terrific co-workers.

    Cons

    There is an exceptionally high turnover rate. Huge division between higher level positions and lower level positions. There is a perception that lower level positions are not taken seriously by management and are seen as very replaceable. High demands, low salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. They have some amazing ideas, and are on the ground, they know what's up. They could streamline processes and help you connect with the girls, thus increasing membership numbers.

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

    Pros

    Your coworkers are passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    After trusting this organization to taking a chance on me, my experience working with the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri council ended terribly. After deciding to let me go after only working there for a year, I wasted the first year of my career to now have to start from ground zero. A month before my wedding, they decided, was a great time to make budget cuts and I was a part of that list after recently promoting me. I wouldn’t trust this organization again- the reality with this non-profit fits its stereotype that your job is truly only safe when business is good. And when it isn’t, no ones jobs there are safe either, despite the economy.

    Advice to Management

    When letting someone go, maybe wait longer than 20 minutes to send out an all-staff email and spell their names correctly. Horribly distasteful.

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA part-time

    Pros

    Loved working with the volunteers and girls.

    Cons

    Not being told you no longer have a job. Came back after Christmas holiday and I didn't have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to employees.
