I worked at McGraw-Hill Education as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great work/life balance, interesting products

Cons

Salary lower than expected. Many old ways of thinking and status quo. Not easy to move to better positions within company. Employees move to another company in the same industry, gain another title and responsibilities, stay for a few years, then come back.

Advice to Management

Increase pay. Regarding technology, provide more services in-house, bring in good people and pay them then they would not have to outsource as much as they do. The product produced in-house is clearly superior.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like to read --you'll have plenty of email to review and respond to everyday.

    Cons

    Management tends to be "my way" and outside of the box thinking is not rewarded. They've taken a page out of the pharma industry and are trying to make the publishing sales business into the same mold.
