It’s fair to say that there will be more change in the way learning takes place in the next few years than there has been in the past 250.

We have proprietary and exclusive content distributed in 66 languages across 154 countries and have digital and print tools and materials available in virtually every academic discipline.

Our values are reflected every day by our people -- their passion, sense of purpose, collaborative spirit, and drive for results. Read about what some have to say about these values and the varied career paths they've followed at McGraw-Hill Education.












For McGraw-Hill Education, diversity is a core value reflected in our leadership's commitment to an inclusive workplace that values each individual and their contributions and enables them to reach their full potential.

In an increasingly global marketplace, our commitment to a diverse and inclusive work environment becomes ever more critical to our future success.  The diverse characteristics, perspectives, ideas and backgrounds that our employees bring to the table give us a vital competitive edge in anticipating and exceeding our customers' needs.

Diversity at our company extends well beyond the traditional definition of race and gender; it's embedded in the very way we do business. Because our products and services are so diverse and global our customers could be anyone, anywhere. So we don't just welcome diverse employee backgrounds here – we seek them out.

We rely on our employees to bring their unique point of view and understanding of the world and apply it to their work. By anticipating our customers' need for knowledge, we provide people with the tools they need to succeed in life.



McGraw-Hill Education is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment. Advancement opportunities and employment decisions will be made without regard to race, religion, gender (including gender identity/expression), ethnicity, creed, color, citizenship status, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital status, national origin, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected under federal, state, or local law.

Furthermore, when filling open positions, managers are expected to seek out a diverse pool of candidates for consideration. Management plays an active role in demonstrating our commitment by providing equal employment opportunities at all levels of employment. For advice or assistance in meeting this obligation, managers are encouraged to consult with their Human Resources representative.


What makes a company responsible? At McGraw-Hill Education, we believe it is a commitment to transparency, integrity and sustainability. These core values guide all of our efforts whether it is our unwavering commitment to creating customer value, our dedication to protecting the environment, or our pledge to contribute in meaningful ways to society at large.

 A career is more than just work—it’s a life decision with far-reaching implications. It’s a decision that impacts your family and your friends. It’s a decision that influences how good you feel about yourself, what you’re working on, and the impact your company is having in the world. And it’s a decision that reaches into the unknown future, including your health, financial stability, and plans for retirement.

At McGraw-Hill Education, we view your career as one part of the whole that makes up your life.

The benefits of working at McGraw-Hill Education are many and include excellent health care; work/life programs such as flextime, elder care, child care, and adoption benefits; vacation time; and contributions toward your retirement plan. (Benefits can differ outside of the U.S.)

We support your career development and growth inside and outside the workplace with training programs and tuition reimbursement.

A diverse workforce and inclusive environments are crucial to our success because when you work for us, you serve diverse, global populations. Our global reach means that you’re part of a company that is serving markets and societies, impacting people both in your community and throughout the world.

Working at McGraw-Hill Education means creating a smarter, better world. Emphasis on the ‘better’ in this case; we are highly regarded for our attention to corporate sustainability and responsibility.

    Good benefits, most managers are fairly flexible, summer hours! Pretty good commission opportunity if you have a fair goal. Salary could be better.


    Never have company hosted events for employees or families. Some managers are still old school while company is trying to evolve.
