    Good Company with Strong Management but Low Compensation

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    McGraw Hill is an exceptionally well-managed company, particularly considering the size of the organization. The culture is welcoming and positive, and you will find no end of support if you ask for it. Toxic people are weeded out quickly, meaning you will look forward to your day, and your co-workers. Management regularly gives the entire company days off, called "Chill Days". During the pandemic, senior management took pay cuts rather than lay off staff - this is a company where you will be treated with compassion, and you will be surrounded by passionate and kind co-workers.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits tend to be below what you will find at other organizations. Insurance and other benefits are *ok*, but not great. There are some archaic processes, particularly around inventory control, that cause a lot of customer issues and headaches, but have remained unresolved for years. Sales targets can be top down, and consequently may not be tethered to reality, which can have a pretty large negative effect on sales compensation.

    Great Culture Great Management

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Managers are all ex-sales people and all know the K-12 space from experience. Company sometimes gives its people random "chill days" just to have extra time off in addition to vacation days.

    Cons

    Unfortunately HR has basically taken over national sales meetings and the general sessions are basically dividing us up by constant hammering/messaging on sexual identity, gender, etc, despite the idea of the whole group coming together as sales colleagues, aka a team, and looking at sales results as a measure of success, not focusing on discrimination, bias, etc, and preaching to us for hours.

    Pros

    CEO cares about people Better Learning Solutions than many of the competitors Employees care about education

    Cons

    Innovation is slowing down and zero cost solutions are ramping up, making the industry a tough ecosystem. Turnover has been high over the past few years, which makes it difficult to get things done. Industry needs to learn more from the tech industry and do a better job separating the sales team and the implementation team, though they are trying.
