I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as a contractor

Pros

Very casual environment, we all wear jeans and the manager is really personable. I like coming to work.

Cons

The company meets its financial goals by cutting and laying off it's employees despite needing to hire people.

    Pros

    Local management and coworkers. A paycheck. Benefits. Fond memories of pre-Zecher days.

    Cons

    Upper management either doesn't have a clue, or could give a crap about the employees on the line and communicating with the customer. Inventory levels suck, morale sucks, hope for a bright future sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Think a little more about your employees and customer service and a lot less about how you look to the world. Oh, and that Microsoft "bring 'em in, burn 'em out, kick 'em out" attitude has to go.
