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

    Pros

    None I can think of apart from some of the good-eggs working there that are trying their best

    Cons

    You will be worked into the ground and then pushed out. It is a bullying culture and they do not allow you to speak out, despite this being apparently a culture point. If you speak up, you will be forced to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stand by what you say you stand for, stop with the boys-club and stop the bullying. Your staff are humans not a commodity.

    Pros

    Great work life balance as other people have mentioned. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The company is massively struggling, and they're ruthless in their headcount cutting. It's also based on favouritism, if you're in there with the top dogs, you'll be fine. There isn't any opportunity for growth or movement. Would only work here if you are unmotivated to do well, and want to do the bare minimum to get by.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time

    Pros

    Some great people; innovative tech

    Cons

    Toxic leadership stuck in a time warp; the wrong people promoted and protected even when faced with damning evidence of bullying and treating direct reports as if they are a threat; cutting edge tech is dumped if the sales teams decide not to try selling it; HR not interested in representing staff who offer feedback, only in protecting those with “knowledge” and creating “mean girls” cliques.

    Advice to Management

    It’s 2019 - get with the program before a once respected brand is completely run into the ground. If your sales people won’t sell a product, then don’t change global strategy as your only hope - make them sell it. Dump the toxic “directors” instead of moving them halfway across the world so the behaviours become entrenched within the overall culture; find a strategy that can be articulated and have the courage to stick...

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

    Pros

    Despite company flaws there is a good team of people doing the hard work. They have great solutions that could make a real difference to academics and students.

    Cons

    Completely lost touch with their customers and the market in general. Poor performance from legacy staff is tolerated. Hard work and commitment is not repaid. Great staff are constantly put on whilst the senior management is often interim or a bad fit for the business making it impossible to be successful as an individual. Staff development and CPD is non-existant. Good people are undervalued and allowed to leave. Salary...

    Advice to Management

    Demonstrate that you trust and value your staff. Treat them with the respect that they deserve. Employ people who will do the job they are paid for rather than either failing or passing off the work of others as their own. Learn how to manage effectively.

    I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working hours Production team is supportive and collaborative

    Cons

    Working with Intl' sales teams has been the most emotionally abusive experience in my time of publishing. Jobs aren't secured, high-turn over due to either exhaustion or unhealthy office enviroment I would only recommend working here for 2yrs. Too many managers who don't find the time to do their own work and dump on others.

    Flexibility in working hours, innovative, progressive

    Cons

    Overworked, little transparency from Senior Leadership, expectation of long working hours and absolute commitment no matter what

    Advice to Management

    Develop more of a personal touch - these are people working for you not robots
