“Our 2021 engagement survey and consistent employee listening made it clear that over 80% of our employees feel both valued and a sense of belonging.” – Adam K., SHRM-SCP, Director of Talent Management For those evaluating their career, employer, or future opportunities Adam advises people to “interview and analyze a new employer as much as their process might analyze you. It’s much better to wait for the right opportunity than to burn yourself out from rush decision-making.” He goes on to say that “whether you’ve been at a job for 20+ years or just celebrated your 1-year anniversary, you should always take time to reflect and identify what you like, dislike, what’s working, and what’s not. This will allow you to organize your thoughts in a way that’s conducive to communicating with others, whether it’s to your current manager and team about your needs or in assessing future opportunities with other organizations.”

Donna C., Senior Content Developer, has been a part of our team for 40 years! She says “I have continued to work here for many reasons including the culture, benefits, and development opportunities, both personal and professional. However, most importantly, I was given the flexibility to have a family and continue working through it all, thanks to great mentors and colleagues who supported and encouraged my journey.” After her high school co-op job at an accounting firm, had closed their doors, Donna was looking for work until she figured out her next steps, which lead her to apply for a Gale Research Manuscript Assistant position. Donna says “I had no intention of being here this long—it just happened. I truly enjoy working and when you work with great people, time flies.”

Pros

The best part of Cengage Group is the culture. Of course, "culture" sounds vague and cliche. But if you know, you know. The pay and benefits are good and certainly appreciated. But is just part of

Cons

I have none. It's a great place to work ( I work remote, but still--a great "place").

Advice to Management

Keep up the openness and empathy. You don't realize how valuable it is to hear your senior leadership talk to people weekly. I know it is a risk to act so human and vulnerable in a corporate setting,

    Media Designer Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cengage Group (Boston, MA) in Jul 2019

    Interview

    The actual interview at Cengage for me was very refreshing. It felt more like a conversation than a formal interview. I wish more interviews were more like the one I had at Cengage. It really helped calm the nerves, and felt like I was talking to an old friend. I went home immediately wanting the job, even though I had been offered similar positions at two other companies. A couple of weeks later I was offered the position at Cengage, and of course I took it.

    Q: Coming from a freelance background, how do you think you would do working on a team of media designers?
