    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 2 years

    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!

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time

    Pros

    Time off. It could be a step in the direction for a new company if you need something to add to your resume

    Cons

    The women that work in my office were mean girls to the core. Management had no idea what they were doing because turn over was so high. Staff is not treated with respect. You can say that most people that worked here did not go by "the girl scout law". There was zero opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Redo all of your policy. Look into what your staff are doing. Have some respect fo your employees.

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

    Pros

    Great group of hard-working women who genuinely care about the GSUSA Program! Parameters and mission had been in flux, but new leadership should get them back on track.

    Cons

    Limited resources regarding fund development and grant writing proposals. Need to find better ways to fund the program besides from the families, many of whom are impoverished.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on point. Find better grant writing and fund development personnel. Value your volunteers; without them, the Program will fail!

    Former Employee - Equestrian Specialist 
    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    They tried to make it a welcoming environment, provided decent training.

    Cons

    Communication was poor, counselors got very little time to themselves. The camp management was not well equipped to care for their horses, the knowledge just wasn't there. Overall, would not recommend working as an equine specialist there.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more honesty and communication, and frankly, respect for employees. Summer staff spend almost their entire days with these girls, and while some management cared, any complaints were treated as if we were whining needlessly.

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA for more than a year

    Pros

    Free cookies during the promo season!

    Cons

    There are a lot of cliques. If your not considered “in” you will get laid off. I was a full time employee for 8 months, but I saw so many changes and layoffs done out of spite. For instance an employee was let go on a Friday and they apologized at brought them back that Monday!

    Advice to Management

    Provide more upward mobility for employees

    Pros

    Fun working with kids Opportunities to be creative with/in work Check-ins/progress checks were helpful Mileage reimbursement Opportunity to work with children/communities across Maricopa County

    Low Pay Nepotism Preached Girl Scout Promise/Law, but when practiced, it is largely symbolic

    Advice to Management

    Pair program locations with staff that work nearby to reduce time in traffic Train everyone consistently Keep everyone on the same page with developments/changes in organization
