    Thank you for writing this review. I appreciate your positive view of HMH and that you’re thriving in your role with us. We give each functional group the autonomy to design work-from-home guidelines based on business needs. So, over time, you might see more groups offering it. Thanks again!

    Smart people CEO with actual vision Education space offers something to those with mission orientation

    Cons

    Company fails to invest adequately in employees and has retention issues Push to unify internal services has led to chaos and interdivisional friction as well as higher vendor prices despite whatever perceived cost savings management hoped for Crappy company logo that looks like a math company or an art-tech firm and was a typical product of design by committee

    Pros

    Really good, well-intentioned staff. Generally decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The company is lacking in process control and could benefit from formal project management for product launches, campaigns etc. Leadership often places a higher value/priority on arbitrary deadlines over quality output.

    Former Employee

    Constantly reorganizing

    Oct 19, 2020 - Senior Field Marketing Manager in Bloomingdale, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The love of education is in the hearts of the employees.

    Cons

    Over the ten plus years that I worked there; you could count on a reorganization every year to two years. Never giving these changes the proper time to see if they will make a positive impact on the company. They are seeking the blue ocean.
