    I worked at Scholastic as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic coworkers who are highly passionate and devoted to creating the best possible products. Awesome benefits, a cafeteria that makes you never want to leave, and a true open-door policy within departments.

    Cons

    There is a good chance, in the words of HR during my exit interview, "Sometimes, people just won't tell you if they don't like how you're working until they decide to fire you." That should say it all.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with subordinates about job performance.
