    Pros

    Management at this facility is great to work for. They strive to make our work enviroment good despite leadership management.

    Cons

    --This company is reactive not proactive.
    --When deadlines are there, let your people know in due time so they don't have to break their backs to get the job done.
    --How many people do you have to have in management? There is always a new one being added.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the people that make it possible for you to make the bottom line. Morale is very low. When the economy turns around, there will be rush to the door.

    Pros

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt was not a bad place to work. You did your shift and went home. You did not have to take work home with you like some jobs. Supervisors did not micromanage too much.

    Cons

    There was ALOT of favoritism between management and some of the co-workers. Some were offered their shift of choice disregarding any seniority. Harcourt was much better off before the takeover by Houghton Mifflin. Since then, all HMH cares about is the bottom line. The benefits have worsened. HMH has stopped contributing to any 401k's..and the selection that they do have is really bad. Also, jobs have been lost here in the US to be moved overseas to India and Ireland

    Advice to Management

    Find some ways to boost employee morale. Stop showing favoritism. Although the lines of communication weren't bad, they weren't great either. Sometimes the right hand did not know what the left was doing.
