ProsCengage Learning is a progressive New England publisher with a quickly growing digital presence in the higher education and reference markets.

ConsCengage Learning is a forward facing company, but there is still some work to be done to massage out the seams that are a result of the company having been built by merging a long list of independently successful companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue working to offer employees more internal, on-the-job training and opportunities to learn additional skills. This growth will be enriching for employees and the skills they gain will be invaluable to the company.

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

    Low Pay, Constant Reorgs and Layoffs, VERY cliquey

    Editorial Assistant (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time for more than 3 years

There's an effort at creating social… Cons: First, it's in a horrible location in South Boston! There's almost nothing around and no one ever knows how to get there.
