    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I walked laps around the building to escape the toxic environment.

    Cons

    Upon hiring, no one assigned me one task. Ok, I think I was assigned one task to lick envelopes--- college-educated, good-paying position. I was shocked by the lack of structure, the lack of guidance, and on top of it---everyone was eating fried chicken and donuts just chatting away like we were all at a very large person buffet. I was disgusted every day working here. Didn't last long.
