I have been working at Scholastic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Scholastic is a lovely place to work. Some plusses: -Nice, respectful people. -Great office location in SoHo NYC! -Good cheap food in the cafeteria (it's also nice to sit up there) -Flexible work options (you can work from home whenever you want) -VERY casual (I wear t-shirt and jeans every day) -No set "hours" - most people roll into the office around 930 or 10. -Benefits are very good (we even have PET INSURANCE!!!) -Global reputation.

Cons

Highly bureaucratic. Many decisions come from upper management (and no, of course they don't know how to do your job!) Even though I'm a full-time employee I was still given an end-date in my contract. Ineffective management. Inappropriate time given to projects. LOTS of work. Expect to take work home over the weekends during crunch times. Many pointless meetings that eat away at your day and lower productivity. Low pay (but, after all, this is publishing!)

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees.
