    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Cengage Learning is one of the highly confident Massachusetts employers highlighted in a story in today’s Boston Business Journal http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI6aO. We believe in the area’s economy and in Boston’s deep talent pool. As a leader in the transition to digital learning, we moved our headquarters to South Boston’s Innovation District a year ago. We now have 550 employees here, with more joining us every day. The confidence showcased in the AIM survey is well-placed.

    Trashing paper textbooks for digital? Not quite.

    What's a college student's biggest expense besides beer? The average college student spends an estimated $1,200 each year on textbooks and school supplies. [...] thrifty students have found ways to avoid paying for books: by renting, scanning or downloading them illegally, leaving the companies that manufacture the books with dwindling profits.
