Featured Review

Current Employee - Marketing Manager

I have been working at Cengage full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

- The culture is positive, motivating and very collaborative - Work brings great opportunities for professional development - The CEO and Executive Team are top leaders with great vision and... corporate strategy - benefits are good - Everyone is so nice, it's very unusual to have such a large group of genuine, hard working individuals

Cons

The company is a leader in driving change in education, which is amazing and exciting to be a part of, but things move fast, so having an adaptable work style would be beneficial to employees.

Advice to Management

Keep up the amazing job! I am super excited to be part of your team and under your direction. You've always made the right decisions and implemented strong strategies for business success. Lead... and I will follow.

Account Manager

I worked at Next Step Living

Pros

The job offered a competitive salary and a nice commission structure. It is a self serving job for the independent employee.

Cons

Jobs are not always guaranteed and you can have some weeks where work is very minimal. The company structure changes frequently and it can be difficult to adjust at times.
