    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    some very nice and hard working people there. if you need your head down and do not make wakes you can get by so if you are in it for the pay and benefits its a great fit. the benefits are good and you have to flexibility for your family.

    Cons

    if you cross the wrong person you can be shut out. change is slow and getting your ideas to the rights person is difficult. if you are not in the in group and can be shut out. No neutral party that you can talk to if you have an issues. good people are let go and mediocre people hang around or get promoted.

    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are incredibly dedicated and the base of product is deep and rich.

    Cons

    The majority of senior management has completely changed within the last year and morale is low as everyone is over-worked and constantly waiting for the shoe to drop on them with the next corporate re-org or down-sizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone understands the financial pressure of the bankruptcy filing and the restructure but bringing in a whole new team and constantly "cleaning house" breeds insecurity, and poor morale and doesn't allow people to do their best work. Get to know people before you decide who stays and who goes...
