I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Salary. Compensation, Perks, Office, Location, Product.

Cons

They should consider former employees if they are relocating to other states.
It is fantastic when a satosfied employee continues to work for the same company. That´s loyalty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider relocated former employees at their new location and give them the chance to go back to your company.

    I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, above-average amount of paid time off, accessible managers at all levels.

    Cons

    I have seen many instances of good employees come into work one day, only to find out it is their last day with the company because they were simply in the wrong department at the wrong time. Advanced notice is never given when laying off employees -- and it can happen unrelated to the health of the company or the individual employee's performance.

    Pros

    There are nice enough people throughout the company. Most are not in managerial positions. Good work/life balance. Good pay.

    Cons

    Nepotism and Peter Principle are rampant throughout. The more under qualified you are for a position, the more likely you will be hired for it. Technology is a joke. People are always fearful for their jobs. HR focuses on the company not the individual and are pretty blatant about it.
