      Positive Outlook

      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 have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        GSWO is extremely supportive, collaborative and uplifting place to work. Everyone is very nice, welcoming, and willing to listen. Flex scheduling, free health care, and PTO is awesome. Decent starting pay for a non-profit.

        Cons

        No company vehicles, and you will probably drive a lot. You do get IRS mileage pay back monthly though!
