    Pros

    Respect and kindness to those who believe in a better way to accomplish projects. The management team holds peer reviews and allows many to lead and to try. Failure is learned and not punished. Innovation is encouraged and items are tested.

    Cons

    Working for a performance driven company will push you to work very long hours. There are multiple companies within McGraw Hill will varying markets. Working across them requires travel and sacrifice of time.

    Advice to Management

    Train the trainer, teach more staff to fish vs do all the fishing for them. Cross discipline training should be adopted vs. single staff person is the person who is only responsible for doing one thing.

    Pros

    Excellent for working moms, flexible schedule allowed, high quality product, they care about work/life balance, amazing benefits

    Cons

    Lack of on-the-job training, Bureacracy, a little bit of an attitude like "we are the best-- take it or leave it." Not a huge willingness to look at things in new ways.

    Advice to Management

    Think out of the box- -and don't just say it in meetings-- really do it!
