    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary 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.

    Cons

    While 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 ManagementAdvice

    Find 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.
