    I worked at School Specialty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, good selection of educational products for the k-12 market sector.

    Cons

    Financially a total mess. Just filled for chapter 11 and stock is at an all time low of 27 cents--- Sales management isnt empowered by corporate level managers to make any distinguishable and important changes to help sales force actually make more sales. No vision. No plan of "attack", Abysimal sales and product training of field sales staff for new hires. Just a disorganized place to be in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come on School Specialty-- get your act together. CEO Lavelle who has been in this role about a year just filed for chapter 11. Is that what any CEO would call "doing an impressive job?"
