    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.

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial full-time (More than a year)

    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 Certain systems and approaches to doing business are outdated and don't account for the advances in technology, such as content management.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.

    Pros

    Good pay, name and experience in finance if you are into that type of thing

    Management at most levels needs to be revamped. Not a problem for most that haven't been in true leadership positions.

    Make the hard choices now to keep up with the times
