    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, especially the amount of vacation time you can earn. Steady work. Overtime is always available. On Site evening college classes are available for those wishing to earn a supervisor or management certificate. Tutition rembursement for college courses if you are working towards a degree. Friendly enviroment. Open door policies. Great HR representives...which I consider a plus. Employee retention is high!

    Cons

    Not enough full time employees. At times you feel like you are doing the work of 3 people. Training and coaching seasonal associates to learn a job you have been doing and still learning everyday for years can be frustrating since they are only there a few months out of the year. Depending on your location or business unit, there maybe only a few opportunities for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Additional full time resources would make a world of difference.

    McGraw-Hill leaves employees stuck in neutral.

    Pros

    The people who work there are fantastic. I really enjoy the work. The company offers decent to very good benefits for health care. You get three weeks vacation after your second anniversary with the company. The company offers nice discounts and activities through an internal employee organization. Fridays are casual, and telecommuting one day a week is permitted during slow periods.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. Add in the ridiculous amount of overtime required because of lack of planning for deadlines, and the pay is even worse. Additionally, the normal raise for average performance (and over 90% of the employees are rated average due to the rules) is usually less than inflation. There is no cost-of-living raise. There are very limited opportunities to advance in your career, and most of the employees work on a contract basis, so there is a lot of stress when contracts are due to be renewed. You have almost no say in what you work on, and employees are frequently shifted between managers with little notice or reason. Your manager may never actually supervise you, but will be responsible for reviewing you and recommending your raises.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more people. There is no reason to keep good employees in entry-level positions. You lose a lot of institutional knowledge and good employees because of the lack of opportunity. Stop talking about the benefits other sections or divisions are getting when they are not applied across the board to everyone. Improve the organizational structure so that the person who supervises you is always the person responsible for reviews. Don't expect casual Fridays to improve morale when you are laying off our coworkers and friends.
