    Pros

    Really friendly team, attentive manager, super cool location in SoHo, interesting work.

    Cons

    People kept to themselves, not much opportunity for advancement (though this is probably characteristic of most publishing firms).

    Advice to Management

    Engage younger staff -- as a childrens' book publisher, they're an important perspective.


  2. A good experience to get one's feet wet in business operations.

    I worked at Scholastic as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship gave the opportunity to get insight into financial operations and the process behind publishing. Coworkers and mentors were very helpful and provided assistance when needed. Served as a good starting point while business was my main interest.

    Cons

    Work consisted of primarily data entry or going through invoices and other sorts of paperwork. Few opportunities to work with other coworkers or for work that broke up the monotony.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for interns to get involved so that the work itself feels more rewarding. This being said, it was only an internship, so the extent that this could be improved may not be large.
