Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management is in a place to really affect change and should seek out the opinions of successful individual contributors. Many times the manager is contacted but for the most part we are successful in spite of the constant need of reports, documentation, and job justification.

    Great Products. Toxic Culture.

    Pros

    We have the best technology products on the market. The competition doesn’t offer anything remotely close to LearnSmart.

    Cons

    The culture has grown so toxic. Leadership talks about a new kind of company, but it’s all fear-driven. There is so much backbiting among managers. The turnover is terrible. We’re all being run into the ground. Some territories are on their third rep in two years. No surprise: Reps are thrown into the field with barebones training. Management doesn’t want to hear excuses, but they don’t want to be held accountable either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit patting yourselves on the back. You’re living off the wise investments of the previous regime. Stop behaving like the Mad Men era never ended. You’re going to get us sued. Quit threatening to replace sales reps with laid off Cengage reps. That’s not how to motivate people! If you’re going to slash our budgets and send us emails on being frugal, stop flying the whole management team to Vegas on the company dime. Get your arms around Connect. We can’t keep crashing or repeatedly having codes that don't work.

    Former Employee - Designer in Columbus, OH

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time for 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.
