    I worked at Cengage Learning full-time

    Pros

    The company holds events for employees, like a summer outing, a Christmas meal out, happy hours every once in a while, etc.

    Cons

    The salary for those on the bottom is so low. And they are the ones doing all the grunt work. There is also little room for advancement, and no attention is paid to professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more middle-tier positions. Pay your employees a fair wage.
