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

Pros

Great location, great work-life balance, high quality products, some really smart people

Cons

Digital is very fragmented across the company. No real heavy hitters in this area. The digital work is uneven. Some is very good, some of it is terribly designed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shake things up by getting some real digital visionaries and then make your division leaders actually listen to them.

    Pros

    Overall, a very engaging and accommodating work environment highlighted by many fun, intelligent employees and the sense of purpose in supporting child literacy. Benefits and perks are both good as well.

    Cons

    Occasionally deal with corporate politics that can interfere with workflow. Compensation falls on the lower end of the industry median.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Often times find upper management to be out of touch with the status of the different business groups. For certain projects, the corporate messaging and direction felt misaligned and disjointed, and ultimately the criticism trickles down to those doing the day-to-day leg work which isn't always appropriate.
