    Pros

    Scholastic is a fantastic company in terms of offering great benefits; a friendly, collaborative environment; and a corporate goal that's truly dedicated to promoting literacy, the arts, and a love of children's books. The Soho location is a beautiful facility, complete with a terrace with Adirondack chairs, a "greenhouse" cafeteria, a health and wellness center, and a small gym. The HR division is always eager to help as well. Despite the struggles book publishing is currently facing, the company tries to avoid layoffs by encouraging generous early retirement packages. As the only book publishing company with top female executives, Scholastic is also great when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    The "family business" mentality sometimes runs against the reality that this is a large international corporation. This results in complicated processes that don't always make sense. The smallest efforts to streamline work processes takes a long time to put into effect. And, most problematically, the dedication to employee retention also results in difficulties in advancement.
