        I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Really great coworkers in the sales team, and a supportive direct manager, and quite a good work/life balance, depending on your location

        Cons

        No culture; no support; not many opportunities to advance unless you're willing to relocate; far too HQ-focused without much consideration for local offices and teams; non-existent HR; stale senior management; low compensations and benefits

        Advice to Management

        Senior management could really use a re-shuffle as it seems the same people constantly get promoted, which leads to a clique-y and quite unhelpful environment; HR really needs to shape up as there is zero support for employees. Due to this, there is a severe lack of culture and quite a negative, toxic environment to work in. Compensations, benefits and incentives could also use an upgrade to match people's value and...

        Take a closer look why retention is so lowest

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Besides above board benefits for some areas, the rest are not worthy of mention

        Cons

        Lack of Strategy and Direction, Poor Follow-Up Skills, Racist and non-inclusive environment

        Advice to Management

        Until you continue to keep the vermin around who pretend to be working and doing something, you will continue to run into losses. Overhead costs are not justified in many locations. Educate internal staff to be equipped with the knowledge BEFORE they attempt to take on a new or additional portfolio. Stretching your teams to be lean at the COE levels is affecting overall capabilities, performance and ability to support...

        I have been working at McGraw-Hill full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        • Great brand, proud history of delivering quality learning and teaching resources. • Good technology, though rapidly diminishing competitive advantage. • Interesting work, good company mission.

        Cons

        • Company's performance appears so dire that senior leaders are either jumping ship or being removed. Aim is obviously to 'stabilize' the company to be offloaded to another VC firm. • Failure to invest in anything new has put the company behind the market by 2-3 years. Too late to play catch up... • No real strategy or trajectory. Decision-making is ad-hoc and pivots occur every quarter. • Claim to be global but...
