Changing for the Better

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsCengage recognizes it has to change while it still has the resources to do so. It is investing heavily in MindTap and integration with leading educational solutions. Simply being a publishing company won't cut it anymore. Like the name says, it's about learning. Great work/life balance. Decent benefits with a couple noteworthy ones, as well.

ConsStill too many layers of management, although that is changing. Many long-time employees are still thinking and acting like they're running a publishing company. Some middle managers try to justify their existence by creating turmoil while adding little to no value. Salaries competitive, but not outstanding, maybe slightly above median.

Advice to Senior ManagementTop management: Get rid of much of the middle management. Middle management: Protect your jobs by becoming effective at moving the company forward, not by trying to preserve the status quo.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
