I have been working at Scholastic full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Most of the people are wonderful. There can be great opportunity to make a contribution if you are willing to put in the effort.

Cons

Unfortunately, because of lack of cohesive vision, lots of folks have become complacent (because they gave up trying or because it's allowed). You can make a difference, but often you have to figure out how to do that yourself - there is not a lot of training or support with the systems etc.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally easygoing, friendly for the most part. Respect for family and hours when needed, adaptable with time so long as workload is achieved.

    Cons

    Issues with respect to databases, technologies are subpar, in terms of assessing operations needs. Creates additional work and at times communicative issues among teams. Many temps staffed that are not hired on for long term, created instability in teams and higher turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Long term planning of resources is key, needs should be assessed for beyond the short term.
