I worked at McGraw Hill Financial

Pros

Ample opportunity for leadership and advancement, good salary and benefits packages, decent communication within individual business units. I was treated very well by my immeidate supervisors and there is genuine culture of rewards and recognition in place. The corporation is very well-run, very professional.

Cons

There is a potential disconnect between sement-level daily priorities and corporate plans/desires. The education segment felt, at times, like something of a black box -- it was not clear that corporate understoon exactly how we were being run on a day to day basis, and that manifested in some lack of follow-through. The segment talks a very good game regardign the future, but the needed activities didn't always take place at the ground level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time planning future revenue streams/alternative businesses; spend more time building concensus within the segment.

    Pros

    The benefits are well laid out and you recieve good compensation

    Cons

    no diversity, all male white male run - it's like working for a 1960's republican convention

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so stuck up and firm and take the time to honestly consider your employees as human beings, not robots

    I have been working at McGraw Hill Financial

    Pros

    The benefits package is really great, and once in the job security is decent. They also really do have alot offer in their work-life program.

    Cons

    The in-house communication is really lacking sometimes, but they know it and are trying to work on it.
    The companies move to out-source some aspects of our work does not seem to be a good idea to me. The problems it brings up more than out-weighs whatever cost saving there are.
    My only other real complaint is their never-ending use and lack of appreciation for Kelly employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the Kelly employess who have shown their worth. It is unfair to them to keep them as temporary employees for years at a time. They can be hired as project status, and it would probably actually cost the company less.
