How is the work/life balance at McGraw Hill?

Pros

Good work life balance, work from home and they honestly are solving amazing problems for people. I loved helping get ahead in life by building ways for them learn and then be able to find meaningful employment.

Cons

Culture sucked, lots of finger pointing and people wasting their time. We had customer problems waiting to be solved and business that could be won but the people that do the work could never be motivated to get them done. Impossible to get promoted, even when you go through the process. They bait and switch you with promises of a promotion that never materialize. Can't tell if it was me, the team, management, HR or the entire company but I spent about 5 years trying to solve this puzzle and never got anywhere. When I left in frustration they came up with more money and title but too little, too late.

Advice to Management

Do not bait and switch your employees with promises of a promotion that never materialize.

How flexible is your schedule working at McGraw Hill?

Pros

As of recently, MH has embraced modern HR practices, flexibility, and benefits. In the midst of a pandemic, I feel good working here, even though layoffs are likely given the hits to the bottom line. 6% 401k matching is nice. Health benefits are okay.

Cons

High achievers outside of sales are not consistently rewarded with compensation or new challenges. Many people are hired from competitors which limits innovation. Lots of light cronyism with poached hires. People are rarely held accountable for failed initiatives that promised (or forecasted) return on investment. In most cases, these people actually seem to be on the promotion fast track. Same goes for project/product managers who overpromise and underdeliver.

Advice to Management

Talk to your director and below level people about how things are doing.
