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.

    Taking time off to recharge is important...make sure you're taking advantage of your full time off package. Vacation accrues monthly at a rate of 2 weeks per year and increases to 3 weeks when you... More

    Cengage provides generous time off and sick time benefits for their employees. Long-term employees get more time off with more years of service. Sick time depends office location.

    Great benefits all across the board! I really appreciate the amount of vacation and volunteer time offered and the leniency management has when it comes to personal life and emergencies. They truly value the work you put in and give you time back to show their appreciation.
