be afraid ... be very afraid
POW (Former Employee), Whitby, ONOctober 24, 2012
Pros: salary, benefits
Cons: micro-managing, unrealistic expectations, no work/life balance
I am still traumatized by working there.

Poor training, micro-managing, non-existent work life balance.

Clique-y, back-stabbing, never felt secure in my position despite being 10% over target. If the regional manager was havinga bad day, then you can bet you're gonna have a bad day too!

If you are a size 0, vegan single woman with no life outside – more... of your job then you'll be very happy there.

Otherwise run far, run fast. – less

Might be a good place to work if one doesn't have to commute.
Developmental Editor (Former Employee), Whitby, ONApril 16, 2012
Pros: learning seminars.
Cons: commuting. rather unfriendly, highly stressed employees.
I was hired to full a position that had been vacant for more than six months. It was a highly stressful position with much to do and little turn around time on projects. Unfortunately, there seemed to be some conflict between my managers expectations and those of management, the latter of which informed my contract and my decision to take on the job – more... in the first place. Given that this was a commuting job, I was told by management that I would have at least two work-from-home days per week and that I could meet directly with authors -- whatever it took to ready key final draft manuscripts. Within a few weeks, it was clear that my immediate manager was not in agreement with this arrangement, and I was forced to commute daily, After spending upwards of 40 hours commuting weekly for an already stressful job, I determined this was not the job for me. – less

Analyst I - Accounts Payable (Former Employee), Hightstown, NJApril 8, 2014
Pros: the networking contacts formed
Cons: the commuting distance from my home
Continuous work flow throughout the entire work day. Able to improve my skill level by attending various classes. The hardest part of the job was troubleshooting financial matters....but it was very satisfying when resolutions were found for those same issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with my clients.

Technical Analyst (Former Employee), Canary WharfFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: enabling atmosphere - people are encouraged to be good at what they do
Cons: they don't seem to be able to handle any undermining issues.
McGraw Hill Financial is a great company with just a few bad apples - much less than the norm for a company of it`s size.
The atmosphere is good and they operate an open door policy of management from their days as an educational institution which sits strangely with parts of the company focused on finance.

Associate clerk/Team Leader (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: we got 40 hrs or better and pay was cool
Cons: seasonal
Working at McGraw Hill, I got a chance to work more on my people skills. I learned a lot about organization lean structure. I became a stronger leader, worked a lot on patience. Management was a little shaky at times as far as higher chain of command. The over all environment was pretty cool. Everybody got along, and flexed to help others when needed. – more... I would say the hardest part about the job would be, the fact we had to break our neck and beg for raises that were really appropriate. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that it was actually hands on. We stayed busy learning each position that was available. – less
