Employer Summary

At Cengage Learning we are accountable to and for each other. Part of that is recognizing the commitment, talent and skills of our employees by offering a comprehensive benefits plan and program. As a full-time employee scheduled to work 30 or more hours per week, you become eligible for most benefits on your date of hire.

Health benefits don’t start when you get sick – we encourage employees to “Learn to Live Well,” promoting a healthy lifestyle through a suite of programs that include flu shots, mammography, biometric screenings, education sessions and health fairs.

We also believe in career development for each and every one of our employees. Our expanding Learning and Development program lets you take advantage of online and in-person programs to build new skills and advance your career. Through in-house training and classes, our employees learn about the business of changing education as we enrich the relationships between educators and students, and eventually lead the charge.

    I like that I have difference health care options to choose from that fit my budget and needs. I also like that Fidelity takes care of all of the 401k investing for us. I don't understand that stuff so it's nice to be able to be hands off.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Technical Support in Independence, Kentucky

    Benefits are actually great. Health insurance, life insurance, 401k plus match at 4%, extended family leave for new parents, including parents of adoption. Vacation time and sick time are great, increases after two years of employment. Employee discount on textbooks, free online courses, dependent/child care, so many resources and benefits.

    Best thing is the 4% 401k match

  • Mar 16, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Raleigh, North Carolina

    401k vesting ( don't receive 100% of the 4% match until you're there for 4 years) and vacation

    I would describe the benefits plan as average, and what you would expect from a large company. For those working in an office the ability to get discounted parking or commuter benefits is a plus.
