    I worked at Scholastic (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly peer
    - Relaxed work load
    - Good rate
    - Huge office space

    Cons

    - I worked at the Danbury, CT portion which is the internet publication wing. Thus, there is visibly less collaboration with the actual NY based IT team.
    - Codebase very messy and at least 7-8 years old.
    - Tech stack is back dated and so are the people who are managing them
    - Upper management does not have any programming exposure
    - Semi corporate, semi startup culture which has made environment even tougher to gasp
