    I have been working at Scholastic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Great benefits. Good family/work balance. One of my most favorite jobs.

    Cons

    Inexpicable behavior on part of upper management. After winning an award for the best performance of the year, increasing my business by 40%, more than double of the next highest performing employee, management decides to send people from the home office to monitor my work process. While there, these people spent all day making dates for drinks after work, etc.....I never did get why this was so. I found a higher paying job with their competitor.

    Advice to Management

    None. Apparently this is a waste of time.

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

    Pros

    Loved the family friendly atmosphere. Was able to have a great work/life balance. Super professional people, NICE people fulfilling a mission.

    Cons

    May layoffs EVERY year. Was hired even though my Manager knew my tenure would probably not be more than two years. :-( The other divisions of Scholastic are bringing down the proverbial ship and thus Scholastic Book Fairs was forced to do really deep layoffs over the last several years. (Publicly traded company)

    Advice to Management

    Management was great in Orlando, unfortunately the layoff orders were coming from higher up in NYC.
