    Pros

    The hours are not long and they are flexible with taking time off. The dress code is casual. The company is fairly young.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth. Not always the most structured roles. Direction was not great when first started but they are improving. Can be boring work for a finance professional.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more direction for new employees (it took me 6-12 months before I had any idea of what the role entailed).

    A great company that is being torn up by senior management changes

    Pros

    Smart engineers, competent tech leads, great variety of projects and opportunities, casual and fun atmosphere working on a popular and valuable product.

    Cons

    The McGraw-Hill Financial reorganization has forced out all of our senior management and replaced them with people who have made it clear that they think of technology as a commodity and not one of our core strengths. The day-to-day work and environment for engineers hasn't changed much, but everyone thinks that it's only a matter of time before things get much worse.

    Pros

    It's a young company with a lot of energy.
    The people are very smart and easy to get along with.
    Management seems to really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Very disorganized.
    Everyone needs to be copied on every email all the time (a slight exaggeration but it's very inefficient and causes more work)
    Meetings are overdone and ineffective.
    Can be ego-driven. Some people have issues with self-importance.
    Some people have too much work to do while others seem to have nothing. The work is not evenly distributed.

    Advice to Management

    Management training is required. It would also help to move away from being such a flat organization- it would help define roles more clearly and help hold people accountable. One manager can not effectively manage 50 to 100 people.
    Processes need to be clearly defined. Growth happened so fast now it's really time to take a look at how to streamline things and become more effective.

    Pros

    Great entry-level positions because salary is above-industry rate. Very dynamic working environment and flexibility in work schedules.

    Cons

    Very limited mobility and opportunity for career growth. Once an employee reaches a certain level, there is no way to further improve than to seek employment elsewhere. Problematic software and application.

    Pros

    Competitive packages comparatively.
    Long-term job security as long as met expectations.

    Cons

    Not an MNC or Corporate environment inside.
    Top and middle managers untrained in people management. communication skills, administration and soft skills.
    Lot of traditional methods followed. Not up-to-date with technology in non-business operations.
    Overly Bossy and unprofessional nature of middle management.
    Comparatively poor infrastructure and office administration.
    Uncleanliness of cafeteria utensils. Bad maintenance of washrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency to associates is essential. Over-secrecy of small things hurts employees motivation.
    Nothing wrong in openly and personally communicating with associates on a daily basis. Can be informal when not talking business.
    Should understand that associates deserves equal respect as middle and top managers.
    Globally-accepted management and leadership principles should be inculcated.
    Team mangers need not be overly bossy.
