Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON10 October 2017
Working at McGraw Hill Ryerson has been a blessing. The location is above par. Located currently on the Whitby waterfront it is an ideal location to zip out during lunch for a quick walk to clear the mind. The people that work here are amazing. The different roles I've had over the years have been challenging and rewarding. Its a place I feel lucky to be part of.

be afraid ... be very afraid
POW (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON24 October 2012
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 of your job then you'll be very happy there.

Otherwise run far, run fast.
Pros
salary, benefits
Cons
micro-managing, unrealistic expectations, no work/life balance

Might be a good place to work if one doesn't have to commute.
Developmental Editor (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON16 April 2012
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 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.
Pros
learning seminars.
Cons
commuting. rather unfriendly, highly stressed employees.
