    I worked at School Specialty full-time

    Pros

    My coworkers were the best. They are highly skilled, smart, and helpful.

    Cons

    Poor financial decisions are being made for the corporation.
    Some divisions are trying to right those decisions but the leadership is weak and their hands are tied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When Lavelle first started, I thought he understood the problem. He didn't act fast enough to fix it. Pick up the pace of cleaning up the mess of the previous CEO or the ship is going to sink. Get rid of products that are ruining your reputation so you have money to spend on the high quality products. Listen to experts in the field rather than those whose egos need to be stroked as they prop up failing products.
