Pros

Very enthusiastic and helpful management that wants to teach those under them how to learn and grow in their position. Very open to new ideas and coming up with the game-changer that will forward the company.

Cons

The process in the office can be slow at times with management, which can be attributed to many employees who come from less business backgrounds compared to education.

Advice to Management

Work on making people see the value of timeliness or find people to work there that can stress it. Continue to foster new ideas to gain a competitive advantage.

    Low pay, hard to ascend, but lenient, laidback and good work/life balance

    Pros

    managers are lenient with time off, benefits and 401(k) are great (100% employer match), friendly, laidback atmosphere, people are nice

    Cons

    very low pay, somewhat degrading to be making copies for nearly two years, hard to get promoted without switching teams

    Advice to Management

    Open up another position in each editorial team to allow more room for movement. Meritocracy does not exist here, it's more a stroke of luck whether or not you get promoted.

    Great place to start out, not a great place to spend any serious time

    Pros

    -small company, lots of hands on learning
    -ability to work independently and in a self directed manor
    -great experience for entry level, and people who are new to industry

    Cons

    -Cengage corporate has a vastly different corporate culture than the Chicago office. This clash is hurting the effectiveness of the Chicago office to run e-commerce businesses. (Chicago office was recently acquired).
    -Products are not doing as well as they once were.
    -A lot of people have left after there was a large restructuring.
    -Compensation is low for the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Kick the corporate habit, and get back to start up mentality. No one ever made it in the web by sitting and waiting.
