In financial trouble

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at School Specialty

ProsSome divisions are better than others

ConsSome business units were so poorly managed that their sales have drastically fallen over the past two years. Since these units represented more than 40% of total revenue, all units are paying the price, even if they are doing well independently.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpin-off/sell the most profitable parts of the company, so that they don't go down with the rest of the troubled parts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
