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.

    The health insurance is great, and Cengage offers paternity leave. Assistance with and support for anything HR-related is very strong.

    Very good benefits. Covers more in dental than some. Vision covers new glasses every other year. I'm told by a friend that it covers a portion of IVF which other companies do not cover.

    The benefits are just average. Nothing special, but as expected.

    Company offers competitive health insurance benefit.

    Good overall 401k, and Health Insurance. Price has gone up a bit though.

    They match 401k dollar for dollar.

    Reasonable benefits. My wife also works so we reviewed both of our benefits packages. She seemed to have a better package overall - but we did wind up using some of the services offered by Cengage.

    Best thing: all the standard benefits, including a strong 401k option. Worst thing: starting vacation package is 10 days (2 weeks) on an accrual basis. Not great if you are in a senior (but not necessarily executive) position.

    Not competitive with companies in our industry in the area. Vacation on an accrual basis (you start with 0) at all positions. The medical plans look good and there are options, but there's a high monthly cost for all of them (not what I've seen elsewhere). 401k doesn't fully vest for 4 years, which is abismal and absurd. No ability to work from home or remotely. Overall not competitive.

    Comprehensive, competitive for size of company
