    I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and fairly casual environment, at least in my department. Excellent office location in downtown Boston.

    Cons

    Very top heavy. Limited access to upper management. Very strong feeling of "just being a number". Chain of command is very very long and it takes a long time for anything productive to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees and growing their loyalty to the company. They are your greatest asset and you're risking losing them.

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

    Pros

    GREAT work life balance, if you are looking for a strict 9-5 this is the place. Additionally, the salary is great (for the orlando office) but may be low for Massachusettes residence.

    Cons

    Very Top Heavy, titles are inflated. One may have a Director or VP title but responsibilities can merely be a manager or Sr. manager at another company.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the Corporate office to perform as a Corporate office. The "shared service center" in Orlando runs the show.
