    Management can be too political and not make adequate judgements on situations.
    Seems as if management has their own secret society.
    Managers are better at managing their bosses than their employees.

    Unstable / No Clear Employee Growth Track

    Former Employee - Administrative in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Administrative in New York, NY

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    McGraw Hill has high industry respect, socially responsible corporate approaches and great benefits and work/life balance options.

    Cons

    There is no clear employee growth track offered to employees. Many simply stay in their positions for over 5 years with no real room for promotion or growth. Although the company has won Working Mothers awards, there is very little diversity (both gender/racial) in upper management. Extremely slow to change business approaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR Management should be challenged to pursue a clear career track initiatives for upwardly mobile employees, especially for women and people of color.
