    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 have been working at Scholastic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. A health-care clinic and a small gym on the premises are nice perks, as is the lovely roof-deck "Greenhouse" cafeteria. Most of the people who actually produce the educational materials really care about what they do and the kids they're doing it for.

    Cons

    Communication is extremely poor. One hand doesn't seem to know what the other is doing. Reviews, if done at all, are via an online program rather than face to face. Morale is low, because positive feedback is rare while negative feedback is commonplace.

    Advice to Management

    Give more support (in time, materials, budget, positive feedback, training) to the people who actually produce your materials, and less to the middle managers just looking to perpetuate their own bonuses and perks.
