One of the few companies remaining with a strong reputation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsBenefits are still good is this day and age. Pay is excellent.

ConsManagement of the company is changing and the company is shifting from a diverse company to, as the new title indicates, a "financial" environment which limits its portfolio and takes away from its charm.

No place to move up and little opportunity to prove your worth, very conservative

Technology (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time for more than a year

ProsSalary OK, depending on which business unit but you will never see a bonus. Co-workers are intelligent, creative and capable; however those that are really good at their job leave for better opportunities. Benefits are good.

ConsWhile S&P maybe innovative the rest of MH Financial is not, maybe because there is little budget for new technology and innovation outside of the S&P brand. Too much movement of personnel for better opportunities somewhere else, why stay when there is no place to move up to? Two weeks vacation and that is the rule for 7 years!

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to keep the capable people, let them know they are valued. Provide opportunities for employees, don't just depend on the same people and assign them to every project; invest in technology and don't continually 'make-do' and work around the old technology. Make a decision to be innovative and find the budget for it. Move into this century with a better vacation package for your employees, it provide a better work/life balance.
