Pros

If you are into a fast-paced environment with room for growth, Scholastic is your place. It is an innovative company with good product.

Cons

People work extremely hard at Scholastic and overall are treated fairly however, there is leadership within the organization that mistreats those who work very hard in order to cover themselves if needed. I'm sure it happens everywhere.

    I worked at Scholastic

    Pros

    Good benefits
     Great learning experience if paired with right senior
    Exposure to multiple departments
    great access to communicate with managers and executives

    Cons

    pay
    no growth
    manger was personal assistant the year before I join (no finance experience)
    Because manager had no experience forced to work late, 8:30 - 8/9 during close (thought this was the norm until I left)
    received senior analyst responsibilities as a financial analyst but not compensated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is completely politics. Managers hold their positions because of their relationship with the executives, not based on education or experience

    I have been working at Scholastic

    Pros

    good products. good location in an interesting neighborhood rather than in midtown. good brand name for your resume.

    Cons

    no support or mentoring. very little contact with manager, even during first month. IT technology is old, not even close to cutting edge. company divisions are very siloed. no one seems to "own" anything and getting decision made is like going in circles.
