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

    Former Employee - Specialist in Burr Ridge, IL

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

    Pros

    Work / life balance, decent pay.

    Cons

    Constant, directionless change. There is no time to perfect a plan of action before moving on to the next failed idea. Too driven to be "first" rather than deliver a stable, quality product. Forecasts for sales and usage less accurate than a TV weatherman, leading to repeated crashes due to server issues. Politics more valued than knowledge capital, forcing those who could improve service out the door, while rewarding "yes" men who lack any sense of the products offered or the service required to support them. HR (now outsourced mostly) turns a blind eye to multiple violations by management, rewarding them rather than addressing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding HR violators and sycophants, and actually listen to rank and file employees. End the culture of cronyism, and return to a meritocracy.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - There are some very dedicated, smart and hard-working people. These are the ones that keep the company going.
    - Flexible work environment, especially if you have an understanding manager.
    - Good benefits.
    - Some senior management changes are giving people more hope.

    Cons

    - There has been a lot of chaos due to company reorganization, outsourcing, sale, and numerous management changes.
    - Constant cost-cutting has caused many to work to exhaustion on a continual basis. Unfortunately this is the norm and not the exception.
    - Management does not appreciate the contributions or institutional knowledge of their staff, even those who have been with the company for 15 or more years.
    - Lack of clear communication about the constant changes leaves employees demoralized and in the dark. Good employees leave as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and treat them better. Communicate your goals and changes to them often and in a clear manner. Cut out the poisonous behavior and reward the good efforts of your staff.
