    J'ai travaillé chez Houghton Mifflin Harcourt à temps plein plus de 10 ans

    Avantages

    Great colleagues: smart, professional, really nice people Excellent benefits Decent salary

    Inconvénients

    Years of poor stewardship by revolving door of upper management, including bad financial planning and a complete refusal to acknowledge lessons learned. Decision paralysis. Upper management was truly terrible for a number of years but from what I am now hearing, they are really turning the ship around. People seem much happier than they were a year ago.

    Avantages

    Great mission with some smart people

    Inconvénients

    Very biased environment. Most of upper/ middle managers and the engineers are from the same country and unless you can get into their circuit and speak their dialects, you are treated differently. Very political and confrontational culture with the line project people confronting on everything instead of collaboration and supporting the team. People were let go without giving reasons and folks are always micro-managed....

    Conseils à la direction

    Treat people nicely as they are your most important asset. Be more transparent. Praise people more for job well done instead of confront to show you are the smart one.

    Je travaille chez Houghton Mifflin Harcourt à temps plein depuis plus de 8 ans

    Avantages

    The people I work with - generally a positive attitude; flexibility (work from home, summer hours program allows for flexitime - would be good to have this formalised at other times of year); the industry we're in is education and learning - which has a feelgood factor. The company has made a good effort to recognize and acknowledge people's contributions, in different ways (public shout-outs, awards, rewards) but could...

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes hard to affect change (functions spread out across business groups, can take time to identify the right person/team - but mostly positive when have the right people).

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep working on the engagement with employees and figuring out good ways to recognize people's achievements and give them reasons to stay. Continue to keep teams informed of strategic decisions and planning for the future. The current HMH Engineering roadmap is giving engineers opportunity to work in current tech in a very agile environment.

      HMH is in the business of driving positive student outcomes, period. Every thing we're doing is focused on that mission. The culture is very positive and motivating

      Inconvénients

      Engineering and IT are inefficient and are a drain on what could otherwise be better, faster ways of getting the work done

      Conseils à la direction

      Jack Lynch, our CEO is amazing!!! Exec team: Stay focused, continue transparency and continue focusing on employees and students. Great work so far!!

      Avantages

      Dublin based engineering team are very talented, collaborative and forward looking. It's a great team to be part of as there are lots of opportunities to learn and to share your knowledge and work to build communities too. Dublin office location is super too.

      Inconvénients

      Need more great people! And more teams to help deliver on the really meaty roadmap and mission.

      Point de vue positif

      J'ai travaillé chez Houghton Mifflin Harcourt à temps plein plus de 8 ans

      Avantages

      Creating good materials for teachers and students is a worthy cause. Steady pay with small yearly increases. Good enough benefits. Great people to work with. Never boring. Autonomy.

      Inconvénients

      Upper management seems to need stronger direction, not to mention people skills. Morale is very low in the company overall. If you keep your head down, but chin up and do a great job for your area, you will be fine. Ignore all the politics.

      Conseils à la direction

      Get more involved with the people you lead and their work. Most are truly doing their best and care about the work they do and the products and services HMH provides. A few high level managers do not know much about education, marketing, or the products and services HMH creates. Worse, perhaps, is they do not care about the people they lead. Weed those bad apples out. Promote the best from within. It will help morale...

      Avantages

      HMH has an ever evolving culture inline with industry best practises. There is an extremely talented pool of individuals at HMH who strive everyday to make great products to improve the lives of over 50 millions users.

      Inconvénients

      The broad technical capabilities on show in HMH is not widely known across the tech sector in Dublin which sometimes leads to a slow ramp up in hiring when needed.

      Conseils à la direction

      Keep doing what your doing. There has been a shift in strategy of late which has energised the wider Engineering organisation and will facilitate growth in the organisation as a whole.
