It's all about the people who work there.

Pros

There is a growing spirit of optimism pervasive throughout the organization, and the belief that if we can just make it through these awkward times, things will get better and glory days will be seen again. The leadership under the new CEO is extremely encouraging; he instills a lot of confidence throughout the ranks. Through and through, it has been the people that keep employees there; when times are tough and nothing seems to make sense, individuals can often be heard expressing their appreciation for the high quality of people-managers and colleagues-they are surrounded by.

Cons

Cengage Learning is a very supportive and nurturing environment. It has its flaws, including lack of training, cohesiveness, organization, and unified strategy but at least the last three are getting better.

Advice to Management

Keep sight on the junior people; look at the company as a startup, in which it is important to foster the talent and development of those newest to the organization. They can bring the fresh insight and skills necessary to usher in a new age in the industry.

    Pros

    Great people--smart, talented, innovative, hardworking, professional, collaborative, efficient, caring, and friendly. Constant cross-functional work. Company goal is appropriate for the ever-changing higher education market.

    Cons

    Constant C-level leadership changes affecting all departments (3 within the last 1 1/2 years) has not allowed employees to settle into their roles and to see the fruits of their labor, contributing to low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the change to stay in effect for longer than 6 months to 1 year so both employees and management can truly see whether the changes have a positive impact on profitability and market share.
