bankruptcy and lack of quality leadership over the years, combined with a general slowdown in educational publishing are spelling the death knell of this company. Meanwhile, the layoffs continue...

    Pros

    There are fantastic people in the company!

    Cons

    Senior-level strategists cannot focus on a single strategy for more than 6 months, which is usually followed by some sort of re-org.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why you lost so many talented people - try listening!

    Pros

    Cengage Learning was once (during the Thomson years) a powerful higher education company with some of the best authors and textbooks on the market.

    Cons

    Now in bankruptcy due to mismanagement by Apax and former senior management. I can't make a judgement on current management, but from the outside looking in, they seem to be just trying to hang on and waiting for the big payoff when company assets are sold off.
