I worked at Scholastic full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

What's not to like about a company that's main mission is to get books to kids. Great place for working moms. Good work/life balance

Cons

Outside of the blockbuster hits like Hunger Games and Harry Potter, the rest of the business model seems to be floundering and they are still feeling their way in the ecommerce space. It's hard to get excited when you are cutting back your budgets every other year.

    I have been working at Scholastic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people. Great benefits. Good family/work balance. One of my most favorite jobs.

    Cons

    Inexpicable behavior on part of upper management. After winning an award for the best performance of the year, increasing my business by 40%, more than double of the next highest performing employee, management decides to send people from the home office to monitor my work process. While there, these people spent all day making dates for drinks after work, etc.....I never did get why this was so. I found a higher paying job with their competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Apparently this is a waste of time.
