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 Certain systems and approaches to doing business are outdated and don't account for the advances in technology, such as content management.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