Great experience, but you have to do it on your own steam

Director (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsMcGraw-Hill has some excellent business units, and a few not so great units. I've been fortunate to work in one of the great units, and life has been pretty rewarding in the company as a result. The recent sale of underperforming units shows the corporation is shedding some of the deadweight, but that only started to happen when a serious activist shareholder got involved. Single best feature of mhp is its global reach. You can work anywhere the world in the business units. Of course you have to be good enough.

ConsThe corporate structure governing the business units has some real airheads working in it. It is just as well for mhp that the profitable units return great margins. But seriously, how long can we subsidize some of these folks before morale sags? If you meet a dimwit and they are on an ordinary salary, chances are 50/50 that they could work in a business unit or in the corporation. If you meet a highly paid dimwit, you know he or she is from the corporation. The corporation needs a shake-up to unleash the power of the bu's from the shackles of mediocre technology, strategy, finance and hr mandarins in corporate.

Advice to Senior ManagementShake up the corporate staff. They don't seem like they would make it in a world where they need to actually generate a margin. Unlike the business units, which have to work twice s hard to fund the largesse of corporate, getting little in return. Maybe force them into bu work rotations frequently.
