I worked at Cengage Learning full-time (More than 5 years)
I was employed with Cengage Learning for six years, and the amount of change and transition the company has been through would be enough to throw anyone off. A full change in executive leadership, bankruptcy, an industry in the middle of its own transition, and layoffs due to reorganizations. But even amidst all the change, Cengage remained a great place to work. The company provides excellent benefits - competitive salaries, generous paid time off, flexible work situations (working from home, varying hours, etc.) - and provides many opportunities to develop their employees and promote from within, whenever possible. I also believe in the mission of this company - which truly is on the student and providing the best education possible, rather than only on the bottom line, as many publishers are perceived by the public.
There is a definite hierarchy. While the Sales force employs a, "Be your own CEO" motto, it doesn't really apply elsewhere in the company. You always know where you fit in among the ranks. Lots of meetings and discussion, and slow to move into action.
Advice to Management
Be transparent. We can see through gimmicks and propaganda. We are smart and can handle the truth, and it is always best to just dish it out, whether we'll like it or not!
