Pros

- No pressure, Chill environment
- Coworkers are nice

Cons

The company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

Advice to Management

Resign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    Pros

    Great entry level work, resume builder, benefits, telecommuting.

    Cons

    The company is too political, and to get ahead, you must kiss up to your manager and/or management. Lou Eccleston and his Thomson cronies have not brought any value or market driven products to the marketplace. As a result, he has taken the easy route by making a name for himself by reorganizing and most importantly, cutting costs. Reducing staff, salaries, & compensation is the standard which has made for a very unhappy, insecure workforce that is fearful of losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    McGraw Hill needs to change management and create a culture that values and rewards it's employees from the bottom up. The company needs to make a real investment in market research in order to better understand the needs and wants of customers in order to bring real, market driven products instead of forcing unwanted products to customers.
