    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with. Was given the chance to travel to different locations. Good office environment.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing going around. Lost a lot of good coworkers. IT department seems lost. No direction just trying to get by.

    Pros

    The company is transforming itself from a text book publisher to an integrated solutions provider for financial markets, capital markets and commodities markets. It is exciting and challenging to be here - lots of innovation - hiring smart people. A nice work life balance. Managers tend to care about team members.

    Cons

    Processes are sometimes time-consuming and frustrating. The company has outsourced back office and the vendors sometimes are of little help - takes a long time/ frustration to get the answers.

    Pros

    Worked in the publications division for about 26 years, saw McGraw-Hill become MHFI. With the last McGraw in retirement, the company rebranded itself and jettisoned the publications in favor of being a pure financial ratings service. Medical plan excellent, salary bumps were modest but steady, 401K match better than most, charitable contributions good.

    Cons

    Sole-deadening place (See Styron's brief but deadly skewering of the place in Sophie's Choice). Depressing to see the dismantlement, piece by piece, of what was once a robust, respected assemblage of trade and business publications.

    Advice to Management

    You have responsibilities to three groups: your customers, your shareholders and your employees. Always keep them balanced. MHFI seems to be following the example of too many corporations, taking care of the folks in the C suite at the expense of the grunts on the shop floor.

    Pros

    Depending on management and drive there is room for growth. The company tries to keep employees engaged through Employee Resource Groups and Volunteer experiences.

    Cons

    Pay appeared to be below industry avg. Work/life balance seemed to be at discretion of individual managers. So if your manager didn't believe in W/L Balance, you didn't really benefit.
