What a week! From College spirit days to virtual events like Bingo to motivational Zooms, the Cengage sales team didn’t let working remotely stop them from growing as a team during this year’s annual Engagement Summit sales meeting. Cengage is #BuiltForThis – whatever 2021 throws at us, we’ve built a strong foundation of easy-to-use, quality digital learning solutions that are designed to empower all kinds of students.

Cengage - Why Work With Us?

Be Unstoppable

At Cengage, we are united by a single belief: Every student has the potential to be unstoppable.

We see a world where every student is a confident learner. Where all learners are propelled by the power of education. A world where they get further with every question, sharper with every lesson and stronger with every challenge. A world of acceleration, advancement and ambition. We see a world where students have the audacity to know their potential and the tenacity to make it real. So that no matter where they go or what they strive for, they will be unstoppable.

"Excellent place to work"

Current Employee - Manager in United States

Approves of CEO

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


Great culture, CEO is very smart and plugged into the issues of the company and the landscape. HR is generous and helpful. Training is available and supported. I love the employee-driven culture.


Due to the naturally cyclical nature of the work, the workload can be hard to manage at times--but management is supportive of taking time to recharge.
