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

    Pros

    Great benefits including health insurance, PTO and flexibility.

    Cons

    Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri -Those at the executive level do not understand the day to day operations of those working in the field. Expectations are unrealistic. Those working with volunteers day in and day out are not heard regarding practices of what’s working and not. Any “pause points” had are done by a questionnaire already determined. The proper questions are not asked therefore it’s like a hamster wheel. The...

    Advice to Management

    Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri -Upper management needs to spend a few days (weeks) with those working with the volunteers. Shadow them to really get an understanding of what they are doing Day in and day out. Spend time with everyone working directly with programs, from volunteers, to portions, community outreach and customer service. This way informed and educated decisions can be made for everyone.

    Pros

    Great mission. Flexible.

    Cons

    High turn over with little room for promotion or growth.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise supporting and encouraging council staff more fully. Employees are attracted to the mission but feel that the mission is not always supported. Disconnect between national and regional councils can be overwhelming.

      Pros

      Flexibility, work from home is good. You meet good people around.

      Cons

      Old School Organization. It takes new contractors years to get hired. VPs, PMs, and Managers are too old, don't want to retire because they're making huge salaries doing nothing all day than talk and cover each others b*tt.

      Advice to Management

      Use new technology to make work process easier, hire new talents to make the organization look better and let old employees retire.

      Pros

      The mission and impact on girls is amazing.

      Cons

      There is constant restructuring about every six months, which is discouraging and confusing, as no one understands who is responsible for what duties at the organization and there is a constant revolving door of employees. Positions are either eliminated or remain vacant for six months, and employees are given the departed employee’s work without appropriate compensation. Pay is not comparable to the industry standard,...

      Advice to Management

      Respect and value your employees. Your rate of turnover is a direct result of low pay, piling more work into employees without compensation, and not hiring experienced managers. Instead of hiring more VPs, directors and extra levels of management staff that are not needed, consider paying your employees appropriately and providing career development.
