    Pros

    GSU is a wonderful place to work if you care about the lives of young girls. As an employee of GSU you provide life changing experiences for girls that will make them leaders of tomorrow. GSU not only teach leadership skills, but other educational programs. It is a very rewarding place to work.

    Cons

    The only "con" working at GSU is that you work a lot of evenings and weekends, beside your regular day shift.

    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to be creative, work with fun people and a comfortable office environment. Casual dress code. The volunteers and girls are wonderful, they make each day worth the work. Work place is bright and colorful; compensation is good for non-profit. A 4/10's work week which is great.
    Flex time. Affordable health insurance.
    Upper management was changed; my experience has been positive. Positive, can-do attitude.

    Cons

    Some disorganization from certain departments and people. Good people, just need a little more practice getting things done ahead of time.
    No 401K employer matching.

    Advice to Management

    A bit more organization when it comes to deadlines.

    Pros

    The culture at Girl Scouts, Arizona Cactus-Pine, is wonderfully supportive with a consistent, passionate vision provided by the CEO. The quality of employees and co-workers is excellent, with dedicated, talented people filling the organization. There is also a high level of management commitment to personal and professional development of employees at every level.

    Cons

    The expectation is that each employee be focused and committed to the organization and the mission and do what it takes to complete the task at hand. This results in a high level of energy and time required. Luckily, almost everyone is high-energy and as passionate as the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It's a great, exciting environment!

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, family-like work environment, room for upward movement, training courses provided at no cost & definite learning experience provided for those who are eager to move up the corporate non-profit ladder. It was a great place to work that allowed me to obtain a wealth of information & wear multiple hats - gaining above average experience for the length of time i was employed. Awesome benefits & flexibility. A lot of opportunity to get involved on a volunteer level. Solid mission & values.

    Cons

    Working at a non-profit sometimes doesn't allow you the room to put into play programs or ideas/creativity you would like to due to budgetary constraints.
