Overall a nice place to work but the management style needs serious review.

Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Saint Charles, IL

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

Pros

The hours and paid holidays are nice. Benefits are good. Nice co-workers.

Cons

Territories and projects are not fairly divided or distributed. When you start to make commission, they will find a reason to take it away. They make you take vacation days when you are sick. Sometimes you don't know your sales goals until the very end of the month. Supervisors talk loudly amongst themselves all day, very loudly which is very distracting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management classes would be helpful.

    Pros

    The vision and mission is socially good.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth, unclear career paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and promote from within, people can see that and appreciate it. Instead, in certain departments like the one I worked in, people were always hired from outside for the more senior positions.
