    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary, and the fact that other companies are impressed by your credentials when you eventually leave and get a better job elsewhere.

    Cons

    No feedback, constructive criticism, or job descriptions to speak of. This seems to be on purpose...to justify any questionable promotions and to keep employees guessing and worried. Or to hide the fact that management has no idea what anybody is doing. The place is so unstable that micromanagement is rampant and covering your you-know-what is the only priority. This happens at a lot of companies, but there is a bit of denial and a belief that this company is above that.

    Advice to Management

    There is no real review process. Employees come to a review ready to talk about their contributions, only to be assured that they are doing "fine" and given other vague compliments and no feedback at all on how to improve. Rookies might fall for this, but it's clear that management can't provide information because they don't actually know what employees are doing. There is no growth or learning for the employee, or, even worse, an employee who is not performing well might actually believe that they are "fine." As far as management knows, they are. No one wins here.
