    I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time


    CL and upper management have really turned a corner with this company in the past year+. There are lots of exciting projects in the works and a certain level of empowerment that had been lacking for several years prior. Management seems to be making solid decisions regarding titles and learning platforms.


    On one hand, the company seems to be heading in a great, exciting, new, and innovative direction. On the other, upper management seems unable to let go of "control" and returns to old corporate ways of thinking such as a recent reprimand about flexible work hours. They work so hard to understand today's current student but haven't given a look at today's current workplace/happy employee. Lately they seem obsessed with "people in seats" from 9 to 5, versus when and where the real work is getting done.

    I applied online – interviewed at Cengage Learning.

    Interview Details

    My interviews were great but I feel there were too many of them. My initial interview was with human resources. The second interview was with the person for whom I was going to work under. The third interview was with that person's boss and the final interview was with that person's boss's boss. Way too many interviews. But, I got the job!

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The interview process took approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Once I was given an offer, everything just fell into place as a normal expected hire.
