I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The people are fantastic and are more than willing to help you anyway that they can. The pay is good but the true value in working here as an intern is the experience.

Cons

This is a personal preference but sitting all day is KILLER. It took no time for me to realize that I am not cut out for a desk job. The ergonomics of this job are hard on the wrists and the back.

Advice to Management

Absolutely nothing! This is a great place to work, as long as you can deal with a sedentary work environment!

    Focus on the future, show us the way, and don't be distracted by the naysayers.

    Fix morale. Employees are depressed.
