I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education (More than 3 years)
The people and culture here are great! We are developing products to improve education which has the power to change the world, what isn't great about that? Standard benefits (medical, dental, etc.) are good, but the other benefits make it a great place to work. These include a generous company match to employee made donations to non-profits; flexible work hours; on-site programs that promote personal growth; on-site fitness room and me-time rooms (as I call them) for nursing moms or whatever you might need; generous adoption program; discounts on textbooks for our kids; and many more! The company has a strong presence in our Dubuque, IA community and often donates money to employee causes and events (city art program and Toastmasters convention, etc.). Management encourages employees to volunteer in the community and often-times allows us to do it during company time. The new CEO and Presidents are great, their vision for the future matches with that of the employees. There is a great sense of pride and dedication among most of the employees which pushes everyone to put out the best product possible. I'm very happy and proud to be a McGraw-Hill employee!
It is a big company! And the cons about McGraw-Hill are basically those of ANY big company. In an effort to reduce costs and save money, staff has been reduced to bare bones and many positions have been outsourced. People are oftentimes afraid to take time off because of how much work will be waiting when they return. Too many overtime hours are spent just trying to keep up. There is often a feeling of fear over whether your job will be next, especially around Christmas time which is when the company likes to lay people off. In the past there has not been a feeling of appreciation from upper management, however they have recently acknowledged this error and are making good efforts to reverse that image.
Advice to Management
Be more of a presence to your "everyday" employees. Walk around and talk to people and thank them for their hard work. It's a small effort that can reap big rewards.
