    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A supportive working environment. All of the employee are willing to help each other. All special occasions are celebrated: birthdays, baby showers, wedding showers. SUPER flexible work schedule. Good for people with kids. They are closed over winter break for over two weeks WITH PAY. Team environment. Many of the employees are friends outside of work. Encouragement to go to community events and opportunity for continuing...

    Cons

    Flexibility, but sometimes work a lot of "off hours," since have to go to troop and service unit meetings. But, not all positions are required to do this, they let you know when you apply. Technology: sometimes it's hard to connect computer remotely when out in community but that was getting better around the time I left.

    Advice to Management

    None: I was happy with management.

        I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Great mission, impactful for many girls in Utah

        Cons

        The salaries are not ideal, but that’s not a surprise ( it is a non profit) The surprise was the incredibly toxic environment. The top management constantly asked for input on improving the culture but always came to the conclusion that there was nothing they could do to make anyone happier. Employees wanted autonomy both in terms of their work (ie. no micromanaging, which was everywhere!) and flexible work schedules....
