A few weeks ago, members of our executive team joined some of our top performing sales leaders, whom we refer to as the Circle of Excellence, in the Dominican Republic to celebrate a fantastic year for Cengage Group. Formal and informal sessions were arranged to discuss how work has changed over the past few years and how we can evolve our better serve our customers. Michael Hansen, CEO, said “This face-to-face time was invaluable. Yes, we want our sales leaders and their significant others to relax and enjoy the trip, but we also want to bring everyone together for those intentional conversations that are critical in shaping our culture and driving our business.”

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,

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cengage Group (United States)

    Interview

Focus on "why do you want this job? You're overqualified." This relentless focus began to devalue the position; if the candidate applies and interviews - they want the job (?)
