Pros

The formal work/life balance programs, in-house medical facility, paid time off, 3-mo paid maternity leave, stock options for employees, discounts on Scholastic store items, corporate building meeting spaces have great facilities, SoHo cafeteria is nice and the food is good and decently priced, most people are friendly and cooperative. And the pay is competitive and fair.

Cons

Management in some divisions is dysfunctional. Executives are intrusive, untrusting, and can be verbally abusive to staff and higher-level managers. There is a recurrent decision to cut project development timelines to meet demands from customers that are stoked by the sales teams, who make promises the company can't meet based on bad or hasty information given to sales. Inter-departmental cooperation is often blocked by untrusting managers.

Advice to Management

Communication about new programs and policies is good, but internal communication about responsibilities roles and changes to processes is not good.

    Pros

    If you are into a fast-paced environment with room for growth, Scholastic is your place. It is an innovative company with good product.

    Cons

    People work extremely hard at Scholastic and overall are treated fairly however, there is leadership within the organization that mistreats those who work very hard in order to cover themselves if needed. I'm sure it happens everywhere.
