    I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hands down the people are the best
    The job itself, without all of the micromanaging, was great
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Everything was micromanaged. The right hand didn't know what he left was doing.
    I sat by and watched good employees who were on time, went above and beyond their duties, reliable, excellent at their jobs get get downsized (with managers and hr saying how much they were valued) - and lousy employees who were always late, made sure they used all their sick days, and played on the internet all day kept their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Really pay attention to which employees really add value to your company - let the departments handle themselves without having managers in a completely different state make the call!!
