    Pros

    We are driving change in education to improve student performance with innovative products including adaptive learning and analytics. Open leadership team, opportunities for career growth, and fun, talented, smart people.

    Cons

    With change and innovation comes the need for agility. Still some work to achieve this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees, and continue to communicate clear goals. Help build bridge with global markets.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    McGraw-Hill is a company that is at the head of the industry. It's constantly developing new and innovative products for students and instructors. The company hires well-educated, smart, and hard-working employees so it's great to work with my colleagues.

    Cons

    It's difficult to get a decent increase in salary unless you transfer to another department or leave the company and come back.

    Former Employee - Event Planner/Entertainment Coordinator in New York, NY

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I only got hired as an event planner for one event so cannot say. Would love to do more for them!

    Cons

    Exec that I worked for didn't take the time to explore working on future events together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have liked some follow up with the person that hired me so that I could have continued working with the company again and again as I do with some other companies. The person that hired me was too busy with her other chores to be interested in that. I put 2010 as last time worked there but actually it was much longer time ago.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has the resources and reputation of a well-established company, but with the fresh outlook of a start-up. In late 2013, for the first time during my employment, I can see virtually every employee buzzing about new ideas and opportunities, and I am seeing positive movement in all areas of the company.

    Cons

    Personal career path is somewhat uncertain, as new roles and responsibilities are being established.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with frequent and meaningful communication to employees.
