I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This is a great company to work for and raise a family. The hours are flexible and the benefits are great. The work was rewarding knowing we were striving to create top notch educational materials. My supervisors were excellent. They assigned and trusted me to get the work done.

Cons

The pay wasn't amazing and raises were very small. The company is struggling a bit to transition and balance print materials with the new internet age.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower the various departments to make decisions and be experts in their areas of expertise. The arduous approval processes up the chain can really slow the company down. This kind of responsibility also makes employees vested in their jobs and take real ownership.

    Great benefits, if you don't get laid off first.

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

    Pros

    McGraw-Hill has great benefits- you get decent insurance right away, and some vacation days right away. There is good work life balance. I liked the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    There was an annual to semi-annual layoff event, but they generally give you a free lunch or ice cream after. There is not much room for advancement.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers were good folks and the benefits package for working at McGraw-Hill was impressive. Work/life balance was respected.

    Cons

    Management seemed to lack vision and was often very secretive. Processes are antiquated, slow and overly complex. This is not an agile company but a cumbersome machine. Also, professional development for employees was sorely lacking despite a lot of talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more youthful, adaptive and develop your talent and resources accordingly or get stuck in the past.
