Suggestions for improvement

  • None, because asking the fox to stop eating the chickens doesn't work... if you're the chicken.

What I like about the company

Not much, unless you like being treated poorly and unrecognized for your accomplishments.

What I dislike about the company

HMH is a poorly run cash machine for the elite upper management. Not much else. If you work there, you're just a cog in the wheel, nothing more. You're an employee badge number on a piece of paper with salary and age.

Company culture

Company is more focused on being busy than achieving results. Lots of time spent building slide decks no one uses.

Support from Management

Unclear expectations, inconsistent goals, lots of busy work.

Level of Autonomy

Sr. Vice Presidents holding weekly staff meetings with 50 people in them. Complete waste of time and manpower.

Communication

Possibly too much communication. Seems like lots of people end up ignoring the messages.
