I have been working at Scholastic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I love the building, and it appears that some folks are very satisfied and content. Roof lounge, great cafeteria, doctor's office, gym, etc...

Cons

Technology is a bit outdated. And if you get stuck working with the wrong people, it can be less than ideal. In my case, my manager was not a pleasure to work with, resulting with many unhappy coworkers, including myself.
