    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.

    I worked at Scholastic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual, fun environment, friendly people, 35 hours a week, in house cafe & roof deck. It is a great place to have a nice work / life balance. Few people take any work home.

    Cons

    Clueless senior management with no vision for digital strategy, Structure stuck in the past, Glacial pace of change, Uninformed employees. Almost no room for growth and no professional development. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people work the same job for 20 years, hire better staff, hire top-notch digital strategy and branding thought leader. Could be a great media company, but there'd have to be a major shakeup with new hires, and ousting of complacent staff.
