I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (less than a year)

Pros

Some really good people to work alongside that care about customer service and education excellence.

Cons

Limited resource and commitment to product training for team members outside the USA. Surprising inability to finalize and implement an incentive/bonus structure for international sales team. Leadership changeover followed by a dismissive and arrogant tone toward many well-qualified career professionals through the ranks willing to serve and support future success. After further leadership changes in this organization, it may well be that such issues are now history and better times are ahead. Hope so!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower and support individuals to contribute to their fullest potential. Listen and positively encourage the best in all performers. Understand that powerful teams are built with positive, collaborative leaders willing to believe in their people and aggressively support and reward their success.
