I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule and ability to work from home occasionally; dedicated employees

Cons

Poor communication from upper level management. Decision makers have lost sight of their customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more respect for you employees. Adjust your focus back to your customers (I.e. school children).

    I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and made some long-term friendships along the way. Many of these friends have also left. Some remain.

    Cons

    After the new CEO came on board, things changed quickly and not for the best. They lost sight of their market to compete in the world of technology, when the reality is their technical branch is not agile or responsive to change. I saw clients promised things that could not be delivered and when I saw things were not going to get better, my opinions/expertise were not valued, I simply resigned. Best decision I ever made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on content and develop it to exist in the new market.
