I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The salary is very decent, taking into account 401K match which is 6%, cash and RSU bonus. Some new managers are very smart and hands-on. Some new engineers are very smart and motivated. The compensation is decent, but it seems everyone is getting averaged.

Cons

Others sat there for 20 years and lack basic expertise to do the work, the only reason their opinion counts is - seniority. Not enough freedom for engineers, this makes your projects sink and postpone forever. New engineers and their ideas are getting slashed by MHF management old timers for no good reasons, just because they worked for the company for too long and know their way around.

Advice to Management

Compensate better to motivate employees to stay and fight with old timers to bring the change to company. Do better and more detailed review of old timers: there are a lot of people who have senior titles and not doing much and not knowing much - completely out of touch with technology advancements.
