Very flexible work environment. Ability to telecommute which is great. People are all great and very collaborative.

Not much room for advancement. Sometimes there can be a lot of churn and no ability to get stuff done which can get frustrating.

    Pros

    good people work at the company - it used to be a great company / people work hard at Cengage

    Cons

    poor compensation / unrealistic goals in certain parts of the country because management is not tuned in to the different areas / chaotic environment / slow on product development / a lot of backorder issues since the filing of Chapter 11 / counting too much on one digital product to pull Cengage out of this mess and it isn't enough

    Advice to Management

    work harder to retain your people - there won't be many good people left in the next two years / communicate to employees more on the status of our restructuring / stop acting like everything is great when it is not

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. The general staff are very hard working, talented and decent people.

    Cons

    Staff is overworked, underpaid and undervalued. Senior staff is very controlling, old school and derogatory towards anyone under them. They lack ethics, compassion and especially vision. Product line is confusing and inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Come down off your pedestals and learn to lead. Or make room for respectable leaders with vision and drive to bring this company out of its downward spiral.
