    I worked at Scholastic

    Pros

    Great mission- who can't get behind teaching kids to read!?! Great product! Awesome Foundation for the Arts! Smart people.

    Cons

    Senior management lacks progressive thinking. Monolithic and slow. Very top down management style. Old school "personnel department" HR function.

    I worked at Scholastic full-time (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.
