I have a lot of autonomy to drive solutions to real-world customer problems in the education space. The people are smart, fun, collaborative, mature, driven, and overall good eggs. I have had many opportunities to grow and take on more responsibility. Managers don't treat employees like children or monitor hours online and in the office. We all get our jobs done and respect each other's lives. People don't play the blame game. Everyone learns from mistakes and moves on. We have some of the best technical teams out there. I feel well compensated compared to other companies in this industry. Senior management makes themselves very available to anyone and are as open as possible with information.
Many people are stretched too thin to do quality work, and some people are performing the jobs of a higher title without the actual title or pay. There have been a few too many re-orgs, layoffs, and company strategy changes in the past couple of years, which have caused some morale issues. There has been disappointment around bonus payouts in the last couple of years. The health insurance is not great compared to other companies in this industry.

Good work/life balance. Decent pay, You have the option to work from
Home or remote. Great professional development opportunities and mentors. Laid back yet very professional work culture. Mcgraw-Hill is a very sold company to work for.
The health insurance can be better.
Advice to Management
With management it depends on what team and or department you land in. Management in NY and LA was pretty on point.
Decent benefits, typical of a large company. Didn’t take the health insurance but think it’s a high deductible/lower premium plan and could be better. Great 401K with 100% match up to 6%. Remote and home office colleagues were nice. Can make good bonuses in sales and company card provided.
Investment group now owns the company so they have it as lean as possible and looking to sell. Had support teams that helped a lot but overall, everyone is stretched too thin. The scope of the role I was in was so large you had to hit the ground running and product training never caught up. Had to learn as you go. Work balance could be better.
Advice to Management
Take care of your employees to retain them. You have wonderful workers willing to put in the work but don’t take advantage and overwork them. See beyond the dollars.
