    Pros

    McGraw Hill is a great place to work. The company is always looking for ways to improve employees work/life balance. Throughout my tenure, the senior management has changed several times but, the outcomes have only been a pleasant surprise.

    Pros

    Healthcare. Benefits. 401k. Some people.

    Cons

    Pay. Favoritism. Poor Leadership. Poor Management.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership rewards favoritism and promotes their friends internally, rather than reward designers or writers who work daily. Executive leaders hold onto their positions. You will not attain a raise working here. People steal each others' ideas all the time, especially managers. They take your idea and act as if it's their own. They really do not care about education or what's best for students. Several workers there do not even take time to make sure to edit content or make sure content is correct. They place Black, Latino, Asian's into their designs or artwork to project diversity, yet do not take the time to invest in actual cultural interest or give narrative from those cultural perspectives. Offensive designs would have been published as well, with different scenarios with implanting one person of color to appease the Black audience, yet not really depicting them accurately or always depicting them doing something physical. There's not enough care in how they represent all people.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    McGraw-Hill Education (MHE) has a good open door policy for talking to your supervisors or others in management.
    Had good 401(k) at that time.
    Good vacation time and personal time.
    Great Parental leave policy and even have books to share with employees for Parenting.
    Some teams knew how to engage in volunteering and great team building exercises.

    Cons

    Lots of outsourcing made communication difficult for deadline on projects.
    Some supervisors liked to micromanage.
    Hard to receive wage increases.

    Advice to Management

    More training to management on how NOT to micromanage (for the few that still did this).
    Facilitate wage increases, specifically in areas that more expensive.
    Less outsourcing may lead to more project deadlines being met.
