    I worked at Scholastic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We made great products for students and teachers. Co-workers were smart and friendly. Learning curve was intense, but I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Employees weren't empowered by management to do their jobs. Management dictated all decision making, but where constantly changing their minds. Unhealthy management style. Expectation to work very long hours

    Advice to Management

    Trust that the brillant people you hired can do their jobs and make decisions.
