    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Boston, MA

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education (more than a year)

    Pros

    Macbook Pro, Apple Cinema display, competetive salary, decent Health Insurance (its getting worse every year but can't say other companies are any different). They seem to have plenty of cash flow.

    Cons

    If you don't feel like reading my tirade I'll tell you one thing - as an engineer expect to be constantly overruled by people who don't know a thing about technology or how to manage it. So. Politics, politics, politics. Good luck running an engineering group if you've always got to feel like the smartest guy in the room and consider any feedback "insubordinate" when it doesn't match your plan to sideline a respected manager and suck everybody into the world of bickering and politics that mires down the rest of the company. If you're a developer expect to waste 75% of your time being toyed with by infighting managers and going to their soul-destroying meetings, 20% of your time doing work that they will throw away when they fight over how to do things again, later, and 5% of your time hanging out in the kitchen trying to regain your sanity over some wonderful free snacks. Another problem, although not as serious as the fact that the folks directly managing engineering seem to harbor jealousy and resentment of their own engineers: ratio of various "Project Managers" (they have at least 3 flavors) to actual work-producing engineers is literally insane (3 to 1?). Somebody in the PMO structure has a lot of power to hire. In summary: the Boston engineering group is headed up by some people with serious ego issues and I assume the goal is just to put lipstick on the pig and sell the company in a couple years because 9-5 face time and your ability to fall in line is valued 100x more than getting anything actually done and done right. Also, in a 15 year career at many different companies I have never been so baldly lied to about so many things ranging from office space decisions to important product decisions. Farcicle at best, really stressful in reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a real, concrete end goal. Work with your engineers to write out a sensible plan to the satisfaction of your project managers. Do not overrule your engineers when you don't have the technical knowledge to reasonably do so (which is pretty much all the time, that's why you hired expensive engineers in the first place). Once you've got a sensible plan get out of their way and let them deliver regardless of their working style (in the office, in Starbucks, at home, whatever). Treat them with courtesy and respect lest they move on in a job market that is currently quite favorable to Software Engineers in Boston. That's it! Not rocket science; just leave your ego at the door.
