High Workflow, low appreciation and compensation
Program Director (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 8, 2016
The BSA has multiple opportunities as a national organization to grow and develop. Unfortunately, a specific culture and generation of volunteers with the decision making power is highly resident to change.
This causes a dead zone in common business practices such as brand management, marketing, development, program content, and quality of service provided.
As a work environment, hours are long, expectations are high and appreciation and compensation are low even for a Non-Profit entity.
I would recommend the BSA profession to a fresh college graduate looking for networking and fundraising experience, but would not recommend they stay for more than five years.
