My experience at Scholastic was a positive one.

Designer (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThe Scholastic offices in downtown Manhattan, Soho, provided a comfortable work environment.

ConsI personally found it hard to grow within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementI was a part time employee so was unable to take advantage of career advancement opportunities within the company. I would suggest close observation of the talents each of your employees have to offer and using those talents to the full.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
