    Pros

    The people make this organization a great place to work. Everyone is passionate about trying to provide the best products for teachers and students.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings, some with no real strategy or tangible outcomes. Switching gears to become a learning science company is a long, difficult process. Some employees are on board, some are not. This makes it difficult to stay on track and move forward.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of staffing in some areas is really detrimental to the creation of good pedagogical content. Employees are burning out.

    Pros

    Wonderful offices, great organization, attention to details, casual environment.

    Cons

    Technology is a crap and everybody wants to keep it as it is. Working with crappy technologies allow people to keep the pace very low and relaxed. No agile practices.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the changes, you have a great opportunity to make McGraw Hill the best company in the world... don't waste it!

    Pros

    Decent pay when compared to industry averages
    Good health benefits with decent healthy living programs to help earn extra money for HSA.

    Cons

    HR department might as well be non-existent. They don't take reports seriously. They just hope that you will stop contacting them with the reports instead of doing something about it.

    Different rules for employees with the same title in the same department. They will let one work from home and require the other to use PTO if they have a personal need to work from home for a day. However, if the office is closed due to weather or some other issue they expect the employees to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly. If there is an expectation that employees will work from home when the office is closed on a business day; allow them to work from home when they have the need.

    Get an HR department that will actually do something other than ignore reports from employees in hopes that they will just go away.

    Pros

    Company is headed in the right direction, great senior leadership team. Inspiring culture, staff are in it for the right reasons: to help students. Revenue and profits still important, but leadership understands those will come with successful solutions.

    Cons

    Balance of decision-making may have swung too far from business and into hands of technology teams. Separate offices with mostly technology staff need a mix of business staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, asking hard questions, looking more deeply into learning sciences and data to help improve learning and teaching.

    Lack of career development and performance feedback is a concern. Your expected to pickup fast with very little training and the workload can be stressful at times.

    Develop you employees and give more face to face feedback. Also keep workloads reasonable and create more efficient work processes.
