I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial

Pros

McGraw-Hill is a well-established company with decent benefits, and it is fairly well-diversified. It isn't terribly sexy, but it feels good to create a tangible product.

Cons

Gets too much credit for promoting Work/Life balance which is only truly practiced in pockets. Klunky execution of technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take your own advice.

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Modern building above the CW tube station and shopping mall; fantastic people, corporate

    Cons

    - Work life balance is abysmal within specific HR Teams. Often the entire team in Comps work 3 days from home whilst the sole individual is expected to man the desk 5 days in office despite living in the other side of London.

    - salary poor. Came from oil and gas industry to drop half wages and subsequently resigned after 6 months to return back to Oil & Gas.

    - no cohesion and poor team communication. No coaching given for individuals who wish to enhance their learning curve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your performance expectations when sourcing candidates to work for you. Do not expect your ideal candidate will become your "Mini-me" overnight and do not trap them in "Catch 22" performance feedbacks. (Eg, feedback to speed up with work load. Speeding up workload leads to errors leading to a summon)

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Office environment and investment in equipment and software is great. Colleagues are from a wide variety of backgrounds and generally sociable.

    Cons

    Too US centric and not as International as it should be. Recognition for a job well done at times feels like swimming in treacle - hard work and slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up and add more transparency. Prepare for succession and don't view it as a threat.
