    I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good variety of product offerings that are widely used and respected in the educational community. Dedicated staff at lower levels.

    Good benefits and salary in keeping with industry averages.

    Cons

    Management doesn't show respect for employee knowledge. Micromanagement and disrespect of employees runs rampant. Incessant restructuring makes it challenging for customers and customer support to know who the territory contact is. Rules change constantly regarding territory assignments and customer focus making it challenging to get accurate sales data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put value in employees and their areas of expertise. Value their input. Be honest about company direction. Hire mid-level management that cares about its customers and employees.
