    Pros

    Dedicated and driven workforce; supportive teammates; quite a few extremely bright individuals around

    Cons

    Lack of organisational direction; not nimble - deeply bureaucratic; constantly trying to manage change - too much going on with too little focus

    Advice to Management

    Must find a way to reduce the chaos by either combining services or detaching them - leaving things in limbo caused confusion for staff and clients; provide more training to new employees; provide opportunities for ongoing internal training

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked here many years and with three kids, have had a lot of flexibility with my job.

    Cons

    While I love my job and managers, I've had many employees complain about managers not being so understanding of family or personal situations. I've always had great managers over the years but that may not be the case for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    This is 2016 and with the majority of the workforce being millennials, it is important to be open and flexible with employees. You will have a lot more loyalty and less turnover this way.

    Pros

    Great product and tech experience within new management. I feel new product management will enhance the joint company. Both companies had great reps on the product side.

    Cons

    New sales management. They don't understand the full landscape of financial information services. They think we can sell the same way they did for a product which was a monopoly. They had a bad rep in the industry and now our clients who we had great relationships with equate them with us. Guilty by association.

    Advice to Management

    Total tunnel vision right now. Look at the bigger picture. We are no longer two companies. We need to take the best of both sides.

    Pros

    The many brands mean a lot of opportunity to move around as long as you have a broad range of experience. I also think there are great people in this company; not the typical Wall Street firm. Under the SPCIQ, many managers are moving towards more progressives styles of management, such as work from home policies, etc.

    Cons

    A lot of uncertainty on the SPCIQ side given a recent acquisition. Some jobs have been lost as a result of redundancy. Certain systems and approaches to doing business are outdated and don't account for the advances in technology, such as content management.

    Advice to Management

    -Take on a chance on some new content management software
    -Provide more transparency on the future state of the business and how/why current decision are going to get us there.

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work from home and the people you meet in your job are amazing. You also get good benefits

    Cons

    It is very difficult to have a work-life balance with retail hours, but that's the nature of retail. Seems to be a disconnect between corporate ideas and the actual implementations in a retail environment.

    Pros

    Standard nine to five hours

    Cons

    Not very challenging. Culture is based off of a very traditional and old way of thinking. Outdated systems. Everyone is slow in getting things completed.
