    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great company serving a great need in promoting literacy around the globe. Awesome location in SoHo which is a fun and vibrant spot. Great work/life balance and good support from middle management; although it's mixed so it really depends who your immediate supervisor is.

    Cons

    This company is more siloed than many government organizations which is just shocking considering they are a publicly traded company. Ripe for a takeover by any well-run organization, especially with the publishing industry in the midst of another disruptive technology impacting the bottom line.

    Senior management has structured a company that regularly competes with itself. Many projects and services in today's climate cut across multiple departments/groups and the top-heavy hierarchical org structure creates for amazing turf wars that ultimately hurt stock owners. The amount of in-fighting is widespread and intense.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should read one of Jack Welch's management books - any one of them. OR, better yet, scrap all the high paid executive consultants who can't implement real change because of the human tendency for self-preservation (need to eat and pay rent), and bring on Welch himself because he doesn't care if you take his advice or not.

    Pros

    If you are into a fast-paced environment with room for growth, Scholastic is your place. It is an innovative company with good product.

    Cons

    People work extremely hard at Scholastic and overall are treated fairly however, there is leadership within the organization that mistreats those who work very hard in order to cover themselves if needed. I'm sure it happens everywhere.
