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

    Pros

    3 weeks starting vacation for all, good free coffee, a giant combo ice machine and water machine with filtered water (yes it's potable...), lots of meeting rooms, nice clean bathrooms, people that respect your time and input, very inclusive to newcomers, very flexible with work-from-home and start/end times, competitive salary, great location right above Penn Station (no subways for LIRR or NJT), big cubes with comfy chairs, nice Cisco phone system, very active intranet, well articulated goals, good health benefits that priced right based on salary.

    Cons

    Fake reviews like the previous one, it can get warm on the sunny side of the building, food around Penn can be hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and do not listen to obvious fake reviews.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, casual dress code, great co-workers who are always willing to answer questions and help advance career

    Cons

    Currently a temp position and knowing I will probably be unemployed after contract is up is unfortunate even though they would like to hire you. Temps don't get paid vacation or holidays so missing out on that pay can by difficult especially during the holidays.
