Cengage has all the advantages of a large company; fairly good benefits, lots of lateral movement opportunities, a chance to learn about higher ed publishing.
Cengage brought in people to help pull it out of bankruptcy - and they did. Michael Hansen and his team came in and ruthlessly reorganized a company that was in sore need of housecleaning. You need people with a clear vision and a wide streak of ruthlessness to be able to do that quickly and efficiently. The problem is those ruthless people are still there and now because they have already reorganized the company multiple times their way of managing in the new direction is bullying. It has created a fearful, toxic environment.
Advice to Management
Keeping your teams in a constant upheaval means you get less productivity and loyalty. Everyone is looking out for themselves in order to survive. That means they are not looking out for the company. They speak of great culture, but the emperor is hearing what he wants to hear form people who are telling him what he wants to hear - not what is actually truth.
