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

I worked at Scholastic full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

May 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 ManagementAdvice

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

Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
