    I have been working at Scholastic full-time


    The work/ life balance is great. I've never thought that I was chained to my desk or some project was so important that I couldn't leave at a reasonable hour. The culture is alright. While there aren't any programs where employees really get to interact inter-departmentally, there are some great people here.

    The gym and health center in the basement are also nice perks that most companies don't retain these days.


    The upper management and some of the middle management is pretty awful. They are ushering the company in to the digital age when most of them have no concept of how to even use digital advancements much less successfully move an entire company in to a digital marketplace. The amount of money that they spend on creating new programs and systems that end up being scrapped completely is absurd. Millions and millions of dollars over the years, down the drain.

    The work force isn't properly utilized. They attract young, smart individuals to work here and then limit their potential causing most to leave for opportunities where they are allowed to be more creative and use their intelligence to advance their career. I've heard many times over the years that the only way you get more money and a better title out of Scholastic is to leave and then come back. You aren't going to find it in the yearly 2% "merit" increases. Scholastic is definitely a place for people who like to settle and have little interest in moving up or earning more money (unless you happen to be the only one left that they can promote).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the top of the pile. Scholastic will become an irrelevant force in the publishing world if you continue to think that dinosaurs of the company can manage a digital reality and lead us in to whatever the new publishing landscape holds.
