I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Change breeds opportunity, and there is a lot of change at Cengage these days. Hopefully new management and the emergence from Chapter 11 will allow the company to pursue more aggressive product development and growth opportunities.

Cons

Has been a very tumultuous work environment because of the crushing debt burden pre-Chapter 11, and very conflicting messages and direction from top management. There have been many needed changes to top management - time will tell whether they are for good or bad.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
