Approves of CEO

I have been working at Cengage full-time

Pros

Progressive and open company culture (CEO hosts weekly Friday company-wide meetings, occasionally “Ask Me Anything” format). Good opportunity for growth within the technology department.

Cons

Cross-team communication could be better and senior leadership has undergone many changes over the past couple years.

    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cengage (Boston, MA)

    Interview

    I sent in a letter, my resume, and a link to my writing portfolio. The HR contact was super polite and emailed for times/dates when I could interview.

    When I sent her my availability, she responded that the manager wanted me two take a couple of writing tests. Nowhere in the job posting did it mention anything about writing tests. I wouldn’t have applied if it did; as a freelancer, I avoid these types of situations since I’ve been burned in the past — working hard on a sample project just to be ghosted after turning it in.

    And the same thing happened here: I completed the two “tests” (they were very simple - copy edit/suggest ways to make an email and a flyer better), and then I never heard from the HR contact again.
