What is health insurance like at McGraw Hill?

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

What is the retirement plan like at McGraw Hill?

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Does McGraw Hill offer family leave?

Pros

McGraw-Hill Education (MHE) has a good open door policy for talking to your supervisors or others in management. Had good 401(k) at that time. Good vacation time and personal time. Great Parental leave policy and even have books to share with employees for Parenting. Some teams knew how to engage in volunteering and great team building exercises.

Cons

Lots of outsourcing made communication difficult for deadline on projects. Some supervisors liked to micromanage. Hard to receive wage increases.

Advice to Management

More training to management on how NOT to micromanage (for the few that still did this). Facilitate wage increases, specifically in areas that more expensive. Less outsourcing may lead to more project deadlines being met.

Great Parental leave policy and even have books to share with employees for Parenting.
