I have grown a great deal during my tenure at HMH and have been given extraordinary opportunities.

Pros

Our mission is honorable. Leadership is really trying to communicate better.

Cons

Leadership still makes decisions about tactical and operational issues without adequate uncut from the people who actually do the work.

    Pros

    The working conditions are great. The job itself is great.

    Cons

    No advancement, Senior management only cares about getting ahead with their careers. There is no employee appreciation, no raises, no career paths.

    Advice to Management

    Car about the people that work for you that are not in upper management. Provide training and advancement.

    Pros

    Excellent environment that allows for work/life balance Very smart people with visionary ideas Great opportunities to learn/grow professionally Pay raises, bonuses, and 401K match have all come back (small for now, but when I consider that many of my friends have not had a raise/bonus in 6 years, I'm grateful).

    Cons

    I think many of the comments on this site may be more a result of location or specific team. I've been working here for 5 years, and have yet to see many of the things mentioned on this site. The company definitely had its struggles during the bad economy and mergers, but I've seen a world of improvement in the last 2 years.
