    I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Books to be proud of; individual team members with lots of talent and a positive attitude towards innovation; reduced price books and some free books for employees; decent benefits

    Cons

    Distracting sense of competition between departments; high expectations for management without adequate support (sometimes apparently little to no management training at all with promotions); erratic restructuring decisions; constant sense of dread that more layoffs or restructuring will come around; gossip; too much talk about unfair compensation and lack of job security

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage collaboration, not competition, between departments; acknowledge wariness about technology both in the workplace and in the future of the industry, and provide employees with more support; create clearer chains of command and management structure
