Pros

Cengage has:
-Talented, committed, and innovative people
-Team-oriented
-Flexible work schedule [in my function]
-Stable work environment [in many functions]
-Good benefits
-Low turnover in many function areas

Cons

Cengage has:
-A lot of transitions and reorgs within the company due to its current financial restructuring which have negatively impacted morale
-Depending on function, not enough opportunities to advance because of an abundance of talent

Advice to Management

You must make it an absolute priority to retain and promote people who are talented, hardworking, and dedicated. It will end up costing the company more in terms of stability, revenue, customer focus, and innovation if you do not.

    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.
