    I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to work remotely when needed, wonderful coworkers (like a family), and an environment that fosters a good attitude

    Cons

    Deadlines can be tight some times, and it's usually around the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the people who are working hard to advance themselves. Don't let those hard workers slip away because of stalling on the corporate ladder.


  2. "Sweeping Changes, Most Are Good"

    I have been working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment within the learning architecture group, knowledgeable and friendly coworkers, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Periods of chaotic schedules and workloads (but it has gotten MUCH better over the last 3 years), everything is done over the phone or online meeting (conference rooms are used for parties and outside guests)

    Advice to Management

    Keep making efforts to recognize the extra work people put in
