    Pros

    - Excellent 401K - matches up to 6% - New CEO David Levin is a great improvement, as is Peter Cohen (MHE President) - Decent health benefits - they have a high HSA deductible plan but they do match progressively based on payscale - Great people - the people who work here are in general very smart and very passionate about what they do. - Flexible working environment - managers are very understanding about the need to work from home or telecommute

    Cons

    -"Bromance" culture in the past / now with sales -Lack of diversity in leadership for women and minorities - Stagnation in internal promotion - many times managers look only outwards toward promotion / hiring in order to acquire new talent. Often people have to really make a case for internal promotion even when it's well deserved. -Publishing itself is undergoing a difficult period of transition with digital / used books - difficulty in reaching goals due to market forces

    Advice to Management

    - Don't overlook internal talent when it comes to promotion / hiring. - Diversity!! Executive and Senior Management is dominated by white men. There needs to be real, true expansion to include women and minority groups at the table and not just pay lip service to the idea.

    Pros

    I've been with companies that were in the middle of a signficant transition, and the communication at MHE is top-knotch in comparison to others. If management doesn't know, they say they don't know. If things have changed, they tell you things have changed. I don't feel that there's any smoke and mirrors here. It is a very professional and open environment. The products and services provided by MHE significantly change students' lives--in a positive way. And they have the data to prove it. It's great to work for a company that focuses on the needs of the customer, as opposed to just throwing product at them. I feel they make very sound business decisions here and are open to new ideas.

    Cons

    Finding information is my biggest challenge. There's no central repository, so you have to do some digging to find out who to talk to or who can help with something. But most are very eager to help you figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing, and share more. It's important for employees to know how you measure success and where the company is based on that measurement. Any data that would help us make more successful products is always welcome.

    Pros

    Company is large and allows for great possibilities for growth and transfer. Offers good benefits and 401k. Different areas of company operate separately.

    Cons

    A lot of re organization can lead to layoffs and lack of job security. Usually it's just upper mgnt that's affected.

    Advice to Management

    Know the details of your the work output that comes from your team so you fully understand what is involved in meeting deadlines and expectations.
