    Pros

    Great team and very smart - at all levels.

    Cons

    Salary, some bureaucracy and red tape. Since it's the only major publisher in Boston there is some malaise at higher levels from lifers who have been at the company for decades.

  2. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt offers customers a venerable brand in the education industry.

    Pros

    HMH is a large company with an excellent reputation and infrastructure. It has deep content and great brands.

    Cons

    HMH is struggling to innovate in a disrupted market (education). In the time I've been here I've seen three different so-called innovation initiatives come and go without achieving any impact in terms of actual innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on one innovation strategy and stick with it until it achieves a meaningful outcome.
