I worked at Scholastic

Pros

good salary. good benefits. great products. wonderful peers. great office location. great name on your resume. great to do work that will delight kids.

Cons

dysfunctional, mean and manipulative managers at the higher levels in the education department. management decisions bloat and bust budgets. goals of executive and marketing decisions sometimes at odds with needs of children and teachers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shed dysfunctional managers. Be able to tell who is better at managing up than managing down. That way, your company won't be a revolving door anymore.
