Great potential, but politics gets in the way

I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time

Pros

Benefits are good. Great history and back catalog of products.

Cons

Sales force has entirely too much political capital for what they contribute. Executives are too afraid to kill the cash cows, so the company is dying from 1,000 paper cuts. Director-level managers are better at managing their bosses than their employees. Very bureaucratic organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Disrupt yourself or you'll be gone in a few years anyway.

    Pros

    No clue what they're doing so many folks don't do much.

    Cons

    Lost in the face of technological change in education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the education division, recognizing your upper mgmt is out of its depth. Ah, you did.

    Unstable / No Clear Employee Growth Track

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    McGraw Hill has high industry respect, socially responsible corporate approaches and great benefits and work/life balance options.

    Cons

    There is no clear employee growth track offered to employees. Many simply stay in their positions for over 5 years with no real room for promotion or growth. Although the company has won Working Mothers awards, there is very little diversity (both gender/racial) in upper management. Extremely slow to change business approaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR Management should be challenged to pursue a clear career track initiatives for upwardly mobile employees, especially for women and people of color.
