Pros

Solid benefits package, ample time off, hands-off management, good opportunities for education and job growth.

Cons

Declining bonus pool, headline risk, abysmal employee morale, and public "ball dropping."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick to the basics, and stop handcuffing the analytic process with administrative tasks.

    Pros

    2. Everyone is pretty friendly
    3. Hours are really good compared to the industry
    4. McGraw-Hill, the parent company has a great benefits package

    Cons

    1. The management structure is very top down and highly political
    2. Employees can entrench themselves within the company and skate by their whole careers
    3. Bottom of the ladder as far as innovation is concerned
    4. Outdated technology and almost 10 years behind the curve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Old regime cannot compete with competition nor in today's market. The entire organization as a whole needs an overhaul from management down to process and technical rigor.
