    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial

    Pros

    Great employees focused on success. Good benefits, especially for working moms. Strong bonus program depending on position.

    Cons

    Biggest complaint was difficulty of getting in to management without outside sales experience. Some unrealistic expectations regarding working outside of normal office hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remain open-minded in terms of acquiring talent from within. While competitive acquistions are good sometimes, there is much to be said for keeping people happy internally as well.

    Interesting company, with a history and culture that works both for and against its success.

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial

    Pros

    The company culture has been described by many as 'collegiate' and I believe that's accurate. All levels of staff are generally respectful, and it's unlikely you will see blatant displays of ego and power that is common in most financial services organizations. My personal impression is having a 'McGraw' at the helm contributes to more long term, forward thinking and decision making.

    Cons

    That desire to analyze and discuss can block decisive action. Communications between groups, and up or down management chains is very poor. Corporate IT is dominated by personal relationships and loyalty is valued more than honesty and contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to encourage more behaviors in the trenches that promote organizational change and progress.
