I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
The company has recently moved to a gorgeous building, investing in amazing furniture and office space. There are white board and chalkboard walls, collaborative space and fun colors. There is finally a Leader in place that believes in communication and transparency. The expectations are getting higher but the work is becoming rewarding. Overall a positive place to work where we are all being challenged to understand the business and that is a good thing.
The leadership team is often detached from the employees. Some of them are remote so at times that is a challenge - but at least they care and seem to be decent business minded individuals.
Advice to Management
Try to be clear in your focus. Keep communicating. Don't get distracted with shiny objects. Stay the course so we can thrive. Overall, super happy about the transformation going on. Way to go.
