I worked at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Decent pay and benefits; considered a friendly environment for working women

Worst kind of systemized performance reviews, very stodgy culture, no room for advancement, constant shifting of priorities

Advice to Management

Favor substance over process, eliminate the computer-model driven reviews and quit marginalizing good workers, empower middle-management

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits; Flexible scheduling and Time Off; Great Pay if in the digital area

    Cons

    Management is blind. If you offer ideas that are obvious to the company's success, you get pushed aside for another way, and this "other way" messes things up worse.
    Very $$$$ driven. If it doesn't make the company money, or save it money, it gets passed over.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your PEONS. They know more than you think. WE are the ones talking to the customers, NOT YOU. You talk among yourselves about money and layoffs, we talk among each other about ways to improve processes. I just WISH I was in a position to make changes. The company would stop wasting time and money on stupid repetitive processes they pay us to do everyday, and these processes would be automated.
