A good company to work for at one time but management has changed it for the worse

Pros

Great entry level work, resume builder, benefits, telecommuting.

Cons

The company is too political, and to get ahead, you must kiss up to your manager and/or management. Lou Eccleston and his Thomson cronies have not brought any value or market driven products to the marketplace. As a result, he has taken the easy route by making a name for himself by reorganizing and most importantly, cutting costs. Reducing staff, salaries, & compensation is the standard which has made for a very unhappy, insecure workforce that is fearful of losing their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

McGraw Hill needs to change management and create a culture that values and rewards it's employees from the bottom up. The company needs to make a real investment in market research in order to better understand the needs and wants of customers in order to bring real, market driven products instead of forcing unwanted products to customers.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Pays well enough.

    Cons

    Lou Eccleston, CEO, and Bob Coppola, CTO, in particular, are clueless to what really is going on within the company, and proven by their actions (or lack thereof), have no idea how to run a technology company.
    Resources are spread too thin and product development has essentially ceased to exist.
    Political nature of a large and old company makes it extremely inefficient to do almost anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring current or former Thomson employees. That company is a mess and we will just end up their same dismal position if we do not change our ways

    Pros

    Company has a ton of assets. They just need to put them together, and get organized to take things to the next level.

    Cons

    The game of fluffing the story up to make it sound better than it is goes up the chain so there is no focus on real problems. Too much spin. There also seems to be an affinity for hiring people that are under-achieving ivy league kids. Top of the pack get real jobs, and this company is clearly meant to succeed in a blue collar financial services way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house if someone is doing a poor job. Entitlement, and seniority should be cut off at inception.
