    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Scholastic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, the work you do has a positive impact on teachers' and students' lives, decent benefits, decent office. It can be chaotic but it's rarely dull. Always something new to work on.

    Cons

    Some of the senior leadership is great and supportive, others are either ego-driven / neurotic. Raises are regularly very small but there are opportunities for advancement and occasionally small bonuses for employees not on a bonus plan. Working late is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make plans for the business clear to all employees. Focus on the business plan, not personal projects.

    I have been working at Scholastic full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good working conditions and decent benefits.
    Most other associates were friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Way behind in technology. For a company as large as it is they were lacking a lot!
    Managers in my experience were not willing to listen or help associates. Striclty there to put in their time and get paid and make themselves look as good as possible to Sr Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade your technology and take time to hear associates ideas and suggestions.
