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.
