    I have enjoyed working at HMH. They truly embrace diversity and my team specifically was receptive to feedback and utilized Lean measures to streamline processes and ensure you were trained well to properly and effectively provide consulting services to external stakeholders.


    None that I can think of.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (United States)


      The interview process was great. Everyone I met with was clear and respectful of my time. Wish the HR process was a little faster, it took much longer than needed to get back to me and the timeline for hiring was stretched out longer than originally stated.
