    Current Employee - Learning Design Author in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    Interesting work. Supportive managers and coworkers. No office politics. Great work-life balance with work from home 2 days per week. Free espresso bar every Monday. Free Keurig coffee everyday. Excellent health benefits. Commuter benefits. Beautiful brand new SF office with view of the bay from work station!

    Cons

    Sometimes have to jump unexpectedly from one project to another. Sometimes have mandatory corporate meetings or events with very little prior notice. Open seating means that at times there is a lot of noise and it can be difficult to concentrate. Expensive and long commute, but company subsidizes half of the cost. Bay area is an expensive place to live.

    Current Employee - Editor in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good mission, good product, great future products in the works. Education market is ripe for good ideas. Those who are close to the customer and know teachers, professors and students needs will be able to innovate. Engineers, bankers and private equity can not address market needs.

    Cons

    Constant staffing cuts remain disruptive to everyday workings. Key question will be how quickly good technology products can be launched and gain market traction vs acceptable bottom line to board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good organizational changes. Need to soften messaging and personalities at Town Halls if you want keep up feeling of open dialogue.
