Current Employee - Inside Sales in Independence, KY

I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, good products. A feeling of satisfaction and financial well-being in the years where my sales targets were reached.

Cons

Loss of self-confidence and motivation in the years where i don't hit my sales goal. Unreasonable sales goals. Cap on bonuses. Inside sales reps make less and have fewer perks than field reps and it's blatantly unfair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay us more. Something fishy is going on in upper management

    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits that include dental, summer hours, tuition and travel reimbursement.

    Cons

    Let's just say that in 2012, upper management received a 5 or 6 figure yearly raise and very low level employees received $0.30 more an hour as a raise. And this is all while they were complaining that we had no money to waste on frivolous things.

    The salary is so low that it's barely a livable salary. There's no room for growth unless you suck up to upper management and compliment them 24/7. Employees are overworked, underpaid, and their work is insulted or ignored. This is a horrible environment to be in, not only for personal and career growth, but also for financial reasons. The HR Department is incompetent and refuses to even listen to employee concerns or discuss salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop parading around as if you're the best thing that happened to this company when you're driving it into the ground and driving your employees away.

    If you actually listened to or talked to your employees, you'd know how unhappy most of us are and that it's mostly due to management style and not being fairly compensated. Most of us are here because we need to pay the bills, not because we enjoy being looked down upon by pretentious editors who are so far removed from what the market wants or needs and who don't care about the status of their products or employees.
