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

    Pros

    Great people, flexible work arrangements, competitive benefits, decent salaries, and the ability to move into a sales position quickly if that's what you're looking for.

    Cons

    Only people who have been in sales can be promoted to management, so that severely limits your mobility upwards. You need to devote at least 3-5 years to sales before they will consider you for management.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at recognizing unconventional talent

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are fair, superficial recognition of a job well done. Diversity in the workplace is valued. Vacation time is 3 weeks.

    Cons

    Upper management manages from the desk (communication is not open and direct to employees working under them). Advancement in career is not truly merit-based.

    Advice to Management

    You should really reward hard work and performance swiftly and promptly. Individual career paths should be focused and management needs to be accountable for their employee's advancement.
