    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at McGraw-Hill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    We have a GIANT K-12 list to sell, but that offers more options.

    Cons

    Managing the giant list can be overwhelming when there aren't enough supports, but most of the time specialists are available to help over the phone, via webinar, or in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more specialists to support sales in the field (especially for ALEKS)

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at McGraw-Hill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some very dedicated and talented people working at MHE with a huge amount of experience Good autonomy and scope to collaborate across the global business Great products and great opportunity to earn good commission as there is a lot of opportunity if pitched appropriately. Good new senior management who have brought more balanced approach to direction of travel as a business

    Cons

    Strategy has changed drastically several times (as have all publishers) and as a result there has been a high turnover of people. Can be a slightly political environment with many decisions being based on rumour and popularity rather than an evidence based meritocracy

    Advice to Management

    Being annual sales cycles and many factors being out of control of the sales team, it's very important to ensure that achievements are recognized outside of YoY growth. Bookshops closing or institutions suddenly moving to institution wide eBook purchase will drastically affect YoY growth/decline but are not necessarily influenced by the reps. Tracking digital adoptions, relationships built and growth of digital... usage as well as new business won (and personally influenced) is the best way to create a fair incentive scheme and a motivating environment for all.
