I worked at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Salary. Compensation, Perks, Office, Location, Product.

Cons

They should consider former employees if they are relocating to other states.
It is fantastic when a satosfied employee continues to work for the same company. That´s loyalty.

Advice to Management

Consider relocated former employees at their new location and give them the chance to go back to your company.

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

    Pros

    Change in CEO is making a difference

    Cons

    Too Many departments needed to answer simple questions.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to move to a ONE call ONE resolution mentality. Meaning that a customer that calls customer service can have all their question and issues resolved in that call. A research and Development Team that handles call issues, develops training materials, and comes up with new ideas to move the company forward.

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

    Pros

    Interesting, intelligent, fun co-workers. Generous time-off policies. Beautiful office space. Great location. It seems that HMH's situation has improved somewhat under Linda Zecher.

    Cons

    HMH farms out way too much work, and many mid-level managers are less-than stellar. No bonuses for worker bees. Workflows and processes are too complex. Not enough new products being developed.

    Advice to Management

    Use your talented in-house staff to develop products. Make new books instead of re-hashing existing ones. Motivate employees with bonuses, no matter how meager. Simplify the workflow.
