Frequent layoffs :-(

Prefer Not to Say - VERY Identifying Title (Former Employee) Orlando, FL (US)

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Many decisions come from upper management (and no, of course they don't know how to do your job!) Even though I'm a full-time employee… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
