Does Cengage Group offer massages?

Pros

Some of the best people I have ever worked with are at Cengage. Most people are passionate about the company's mission. Free snacks, free gym, free beer on tap, company wide social events.

Cons

The people in leadership are clueless and lack empathy. I have never been a part of an organization who is so careless and unorganized when it comes to lay offs. You would think they would be experts in it considering all of the cuts they have made in the last year, but unfortunately that was not the case this time. HR is also extremely disorganized and treats people as if they are disposable regardless of how many years they have dedicated to the company.

Advice to Management

Treat people with respect.

Does Cengage Group offer dental insurance?

Pros

37.5 hours per week is considered full time. Great benefits including 4% matching 401k with several different investment options. Dental and Medical coverage benefit plans that are reasonably priced and offer flexible options for unique circumstances. Intelligent, respectful, and motivated coworkers, management, and executives. Incredible Leadership from the top down. Access to great technology that allows employees to complete their tasks as efficiently as possible. Unlimited opportunities for growth and promotion.

Cons

Because of the fast paced environment, solutions need to be made at a very quick pace. Each day can hold a different challenge, which I personally see as a positive since I enjoy working in an environment like this. (but it's not for everyone)

Advice to Management

Continue providing outstanding leadership and guidance to your employees.
