Poor management
Mac Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 18, 2017
Stay away from this place, VIP IT manager is a back stabber and very revengeful. The team that he hires are not friendly at all. His job is to look for any mistakes you make so that he can confront you hoping that he can fire you.
Pros
Company has a few nice people who work hard.
Cons
Not a nice place to work at, lots of layoffs.

Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 25, 2015
We had a great team of people who set up and educated teachers from pre-k to 5th grade about the reading materials McGraw had to offer. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting educators and sharing the materials the company had to offer.
Pros
Great leader and the best group of people who truly understood teamwork
Cons
It was a contract job so once the reading adoption program ended, I had to find another source of work.

Receptionist/Secretary (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYApril 15, 2013
A million projects to do and calls to make but an amazing manager. i learned how to be the perfect personal assistant/secretary. worked well under pressure. Coworkers were friendly , not really any major hardships but i can say running errands in the summer heat wasn't so great and most enjoyable part was the free lunch sometimes and the free tickets to theater shows.
