I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Opportunities to learn, grow and work hard. Good benefits and commission structure.

Cons

Lots of change management happened in the 7 years I was there. Some positions were filled by people would were in over their heads, while others with better skills were overlooked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sales field needed to be more regularly evaluated and upgraded, retrained.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education full-time for more than 8 years

    * great employees
    * employee programs

    Cons

    * managers are power driven and don't listen
    * expectation of work 20 hours a day
    * internal processes are not established and no one seems to know what to do

    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.

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

    Pros

    Professional is home of McGraw's legacy brand. Fair wages and vacation benefits. Still populated by [a shrinking core of] book lovers. Offices are in a nice part of town. Some product and editorial people are stellar. Long-timers remember the "good old days," and work tirelessly to recreate MHP's past successes. The Professional Group's President's aide-de-camp is old and probably will retire soon, hopefully leaving somebody less "committed" to take attendance.

    Cons

    Run like a Soviet prison gulag--snitches, weasels, and toadies rule. Workers are pitted one against the other, in turn creating an environment in which individuals care only about their own job or product silo. Slow to adopt to demand for digital content. Agonizingly long product development cycle. No commitment to project management--or to adopting processes that address systemic weaknesses. Meeting-heavy work culture. Managers are not expected or encouraged to communicate with their teams, except when MH Professional is in crisis mode--which seems to be always. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership should update their resumes or consider taking the money and running.
