    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good coworkers, flexible schedule, great mission

    Cons

    Work environment is toxic. Top leadership team are more concerned with looking cool than having an actual strategy. Goals are rarely met. Treat employees as expendable.

    Advice to Management

    The failures are on you.

      I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 4 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 2 years

      Pros

      Pros are it’s a good place to work while you look for something better. Sometimes there are treats in the break room.

      Cons

      Lack of management. Everyone has a huge lofty title, but lack the experience and credentials to hold said titles so everyone walks around with a sense of arrogance and entitlement. Troop leaders outright deny little girls that want to join their troop if they don’t live in their cutesy neighborhoods (ie, discrimination...the very thing this organization supposedly goes against). The organization operates like a little...

      Advice to Management

      Actually TRAIN your management team so that they are better equipped to train their employees. Make sure rules are enforced straight across the board to ALL members (employees and scout leaders/volunteers alike. And make sure you’re putting as much effort into actually placing girls in troops as you do into recruiting them. There has to be more to recruitment than just hitting a goal. These are girls, not numbers.
