I worked at Scholastic full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The vision and mission is socially good.

Cons

Limited opportunities for growth, unclear career paths.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire and promote from within, people can see that and appreciate it. Instead, in certain departments like the one I worked in, people were always hired from outside for the more senior positions.

    I have been working at Scholastic full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hours and paid holidays are nice. Benefits are good. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Territories and projects are not fairly divided or distributed. When you start to make commission, they will find a reason to take it away. They make you take vacation days when you are sick. Sometimes you don't know your sales goals until the very end of the month. Supervisors talk loudly amongst themselves all day, very loudly which is very distracting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management classes would be helpful.

    Former Employee - Senior Director

    I worked at Scholastic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    When Scholastic was a growing company, there was tremendous opportunity. The culture is difficult, but if you worked for a good boss, there was much opportunity to grow. For working moms, the work/ life balance is great.

    Cons

    Scholastic needs better upper management with vision and the talent to operate more efficiently. Also, upper managers in the revenue groups do not always work well together. This conflict travels downward through the corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scholastic could be a great company if collaboration was valued and rewarded.
