I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The leaders have a clear vision of where the company should go, explain it well, and have the drive and abiility to get it done.

Cons

Some mid-level executives are resisting the move to digital but that will soon pass.

Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are truly wonderful to work with and many have worked at HMH for over 10 years. Pay is on target with position.

    Cons

    The company is in chaos. Just got out of Bankruptcy and things arent any better. Very mixed messages from executive leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Fix morale. Employees are depressed.

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

    Pros

    Promoted 3 times within 5 years of my 11. My team was the best, making my experience at HM much better. Before merging with Hartcourt, the company dynamic was not the best, but the people were awesome, I loved my job, and felt a sense of "worth". The work I did, no matter how big or small, was an educational contribution to our nation's school districts.

    Cons

    After HM acquired Harcourt, things changed dramatically. Issues that matter, such as quality improvement for employees and our work, was overlooked and downplayed for the sake of making a profit. This is just my opinion, it doesn't reflect what others think and I'm hopeful HMH's culture and value has gotten better.
