    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is very decent, taking into account 401K match which is 6%, cash and RSU bonus. Some new managers are very smart and hands-on. Some new engineers are very smart and motivated. The compensation is decent, but it seems everyone is getting averaged.

    Cons

    Others sat there for 20 years and lack basic expertise to do the work, the only reason their opinion counts is - seniority. Not enough freedom for engineers, this makes your projects sink and postpone forever. New engineers and their ideas are getting slashed by MHF management old timers for no good reasons, just because they worked for the company for too long and know their way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate better to motivate employees to stay and fight with old timers to bring the change to company. Do better and more detailed review of old timers: there are a lot of people who have senior titles and not doing much and not knowing much - completely out of touch with technology advancements.

    Pros

    The announcement of new CEO seems promising
    Great employees

    Cons

    The company has been in a constant state of change since I arrived 4 years ago and is losing top talent to competitors
    Not so great executing or establishing strategy
    Bureaucratic, takes forever for decisions to get made

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage collaboration
    Develop green talent, there is a major focus on retaining top level employees when more junior employees do the grunt work

    Doesn't Recommend
