    Pros

    It’s incredible to be surrounded by a group of people who are equally passionate and driven. Working for GSUSA has exceeded my expectations of what working for a non profit could be like. There are so many projects that you could get involved in that could help take your career to the next level. Additionally, there’s work flexibility and managers encourage you to take your vacation time. If you are driven, self-motivated, and resourceful you’ll succeed here.

    Cons

    As any non profit, there is a lot of work but that also means there is a lot of opportunity to shine and develop a skill you didn’t know you had.

  3. "Loved it!"

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Parking
    Location
    Work/Life Balance
    Green working environment
    Paid Time off

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive for all positions
    absolutely no opportunity for growth development or advancement
    high turnover
    mission and Girl Scout law does not reflect internal culture
    almost non existent diversity at the executive or senior level management despite the diverse demographic within the organization (this is a serious problem)
    Low morale internally

    Advice to Management

    Invest in ALL employees development not just the favorites. Train upper level management and THEN retrain upper level management on being real mentors to their staff. Realize that seniority isn't necessarily a qualification for management. Just because someone is great at self management, doesn't mean they're capable of managing others.
