    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Offers Opportunity to develop broad set of skill set if desired; interesting opportunities to work across different business units (S&P Dow Jones Indices, S&P Capital IQ, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, Platts, JD Power)

    Cons

    Too many recent restructerings of the business/sales model with little long-term advantages at S&P Capital IQ because changes get undone in cycles
    S&P Capital IQ is a strong data player, but has little strength in analytical risk expertise

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    too many brands and the trajectory of the strategy changes as much as the management layer. Upward mobility is almost impossible in anything but the sales groups. management style is not condusive to innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable those closest to the customer to innovate

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial

    Pros

    There was a good work/life balance because I knew that I would be out of the office after 5pm.

    Cons

    Nobody seems to care too much about helping each other. I didn't get the sense that the employees really understood how the company fit into the financial landscape and it didn't seem like the company was committed to excellence.
