    Pros

    Lots of flexibility and great people

    Cons

    Terrible digital platform - six years and no product to sell. Content is important but disregarded by digital team.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what we do well - great content and adaptive products - especially LearnSmart. Reduce spend on digital team as they have not developed anything in the last six years. Don’t forget your roots - experienced higher educational leaders are important and stop excluding them.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill Education full-time

    Pros

    -People are awesome
    -Free food and drink
    -It's meaningful to work in education and you feel that there.

    Cons

    -Health insurance sucks
    -Work-Life balance is a joke. Being called to work on a night or weekend was a weekly occurrence.
    -Insane deadlines are given with no serious input allowed from the technical teams on timelines.
    -Mangement is almost all middle aged white men, with huge egos and a tendency to only listen to their own opinions
    -Almost no opportunities to move up and most career building opportunities are denied (conferences, additional training)
    -Pay was well below market value and request for raises can take close to a year.

    Advice to Management

    -Start listening to your employees. They're overworked and miserable.
    -Get your managers some training, or get new ones. The current ones are not advocating for their employees appropriately.
