Shooting yourself in the foot isn't good, whether the bullet be analog or digital.

I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time

Pros

Flexible hours, casual dress, some awesome products, some very good people, a history of success

Cons

Politics-driven business decisions, marginalizing people who should be key players, belief that adding "digital" to job titles magically confers a skill set, rushed projects that are neither innovative nor exceptional, clinging to the analog-based publishing paradigm of outsourcing as much as possible when digital products are always custom-crafted and require custom training, low pay keeps away the best tech talent

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I want this company to succeed, and I know you are under great pressure to excel in a hurry. Draw on the knowledge of those who have succeeded before and do not sacrifice quality or complexity for quick-to-market products that will delight no one. Do not place people in positions of accountability or authority unless they have a proven track record in the digital space. Discard previous tribal politics and move forward based on proven abilities and knowledge.

    Excellent work life balance & ability to work from home!

    Lots of new folks - which isn't really a con, but it takes a bit to ramp up.

    I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee-centric culture; innovating; evolving into a contemporary company; education is a great space to work in - can change the world

    Cons

    Struggling to leave the past behind; not a well-known company, despite the positive impact it makes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up - keep reaching out to employees. We are your best asset.
