I worked at Scholastic full-time (more than an 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

    They stand for important contributions to the long -term future of our children. Theyy're a fair and reasonable employer with high, but realistic expectations.

    Cons

    Publishing tends to pay less than other industries because people are in "it" for the business itself.
