    Pros

    Interesting businesses that have significant impact on global credit, equity, energy, automotive and construction markets. You can learn a great deal and be proud of the impact you are having on individuals and communities. Lots of very smart people.

    Cons

    Depends on where you work -- senior management should always remember they are there to help the company and its employees grow and thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that employees need to connect with a positive purpose that transcends higher revenue and margins and lower costs.

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Once a great place to work. Challenging work, wonderful coworkers and peers. Smart, Sassy.
    Good benefits; great Profit Sharing award each year & 100% cash match 401(k) for first 6%.

    Cons

    Think they're the best on the block, but not so. Ever since DOJ suit can't seem to right the ship. Management turnover. Some had to go, but others to replace them leave within 18-24 months. Losing confidence in Mr. Peterson's ability to keep the ship afloat. Recent acquisitions leave upheaval, layoffs, offshoring in their wake. Less ability to get something done. More create a ticket to track requests for service from off-shore vendors. Time wasting. Morale sapping. Moving more and more to tech-only roles and skills in other areas not transferable to new positions even though MHF lip services internal mobility. Very low annual merit increases for anyone other than tech or sales or Sr. Management. As with most companies, if you don't have someone to champion your cause, you either put up and shut up or you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together or there will be no more McGraw Hill Financial in 3 yrs. It will be SNL/Standard & Poor's soon.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, unlimited sick time, professionalism, well-known name. High job security, especially for admins. Employees are generally respectful and friendly, high diversity, some very smart people.

    Cons

    Pay range is extremely wide amongst admins, some at 50k -.120k. Low increases. Long hours depending on who you work for. Some admins have plenty of downtime, some are over-worked. HR works for the managers so there wont be much support there. Avoid the female managers at all costs. Too many changes in the company with the executives constantly resigning due to burn out. Not much room for advancement
