    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with. Was given the chance to travel to different locations. Good office environment.

    Too much outsourcing going around. Lost a lot of good coworkers. IT department seems lost. No direction just trying to get by.

    Pros

    Depending on management and drive there is room for growth.

    The company tries to keep employees engaged through Employee Resource Groups and Volunteer experiences.

    Cons

    Pay appeared to be below industry avg. Work/life balance seemed to be at discretion of individual managers. So if your manager didn't believe in W/L Balance, you didn't really benefit.

    I worked at McGraw Hill Financial (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked in the publications division for about 26 years, saw McGraw-Hill become MHFI. With the last McGraw in retirement, the company rebranded itself and jettisoned the publications in favor of being a pure financial ratings service. Medical plan excellent, salary bumps were modest but steady, 401K match better than most, charitable contributions good.

    Cons

    Sole-deadening place (See Styron's brief but deadly skewering of the place in Sophie's Choice). Depressing to see the dismantlement, piece by piece, of what was once a robust, respected assemblage of trade and business publications.

    Advice to Management

    You have responsibilities to three groups: your customers, your shareholders and your employees. Always keep them balanced. MHFI seems to be following the example of too many corporations, taking care of the folks in the C suite at the expense of the grunts on the shop floor.

    Pros

    Great compensation package. Good benefits. Well-regarded companies. People have been there a long time. Good cafeteria in main locations.

    Cons

    Benefits were expensive, so used spouse's instead. Very dated culture, and infrastructure. Too decentralized. Different systems, hard to get IT support

    Advice to Management

    Centralize corporate offices. It is hard to get help from HR, IT, Procurement - don't know who to go to. Offshore support doesn't route you to right person for help if you need something other than system suport
