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

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers. Good commute to 2 Penn. Decent Comp' and Benefits.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and poor people management within Corporate. Due to poor oversight mediocre performing employees will often do better from a recognition perspective than their better performing peers. The constant employee layoff's has resulted in low employee morale and a huge loss to the company of experienced employees with institutional knowledge. Burgeoning contractor population. Inherited 'Silo' mentality is still prevalent within some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Cop on!

    Pros

    Great benefits, salaries, people/culture, a clearly defined vision as a learning science company, great support so that reps are not expected to be doing the equivalent of 3 jobs. MHE has made the right investment in technology, systems, and people/culture.

    Cons

    None so far. Having come from a competitor, this feels like a dream. The systems are efficient, the onboarding is smooth and they make their employees feel important.

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill Education full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    very fun bunch, lots of camaraderie and well fed during travel.

    Cons

    Husband is notoriously late doing her paper work on her expense report.. The result is that we pay several hundred dollars annually in late fees and fines for a credit card she must use to do her job.

    Advice to Management

    Im sure there Are other persons that have this issue. My company handles this differently as I would think they would try to avoid this. Not sure how best done but in the end if enough persons feel penalized Im sure there is grounds for a class action suite to recover these funds.

    Pros

    Great people in a changing industry as it moves from historically paper/pencil to digital. Upper management is continuing to redirect the company but the challenge is customer needs/infrastructure.

    Cons

    Reductions/restructuring have been painful. Frustrating issues with ERP system updates exacerbate the stress.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my 15+ years with MHE. Great people, wonderful product and a company that valued their employees.

    Cons

    The travel was tough. This isn't the fault of MHE, it was just part of being in sales with a large region to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the input of your employees.

    Pros

    Work life balance - which is another way of saying people have checked out and no one cares/notices. Some great people inside the company, most of whom are just waiting for something better to come along.

    Cons

    Terrible culture if you chose to engage with the company which most people do not. A lack of direction and a CEO who is so removed from the realities of the market and business as to render him useless.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention, make choices, be honest.
