    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you want to contribute to the creation of widely-used educational software programs and textbooks, this $2-billion revenue-per-year company is one of a half-dozen large educational publishing companies supplying (mostly English-language) schools and colleges worldwide with such materials. Compensation and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    If you want to create disruptive technologies, enter non-educational markets, or advance quickly through the ranks, you will struggle against entrenched senior management with short-term objectives. Recently out of bankruptcy, Cengage Learning staff has been trimmed to focus only on guaranteed, 1 to 3-year successes that will please the private equity owners and tickle senior management incentive plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your hands are tied to the private-equity ownership short-term timeframes, so I understand that disruptive technologies or non-educational markets appear out of reach. But if you are still with this company five to ten years from now, you will wish you would have taken more risks.
