I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work/life balance. Competitive salary. Awesome team / collaborative / agile environment.

Overall, this is a great place to work. I enjoy coming in almost every day, and I find the work interesting and challenging. I have learned more in my time at this job than in any other two jobs I can think of.

Cons

None that I can think of. It's a great place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work... and raise salaries a bit. I think we're slightly underpaid compared to the market.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cengage 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue 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.

    Pros

    Not many these days
    Finally got rid of some of thee unnecessary upper management layers - probably where they need to continue to cut if they want to save money.

    Cons

    Company continues to shove technology that doesn't work with no support out the door.
    Company has cut territories, cut support, cut compensation, doesn't give out goals til at least 6 months into the year, doesn't appreciate employees and relationships
    Expectations of upper management are completely unrealisitic in an industry that is declining due to transition.
    Raising prices will only price yourself right out of the market.
    Completely unfocused and no clear defining mission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How is it acceptable for management to claim earning are down 7% in the industry overall and expect 8, 9, 10% growth from their sales force?
    FYI if less than 70% of your sales force is actually hitting goal since APAX took over, you have a non motivated sales force and everyone knows a happy, appreciated, and motivated sales force is one that produces.
