Cengage Learning – Why Work For Us?


   

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.



 

Who We Are

Cengage is the education and technology company built for learners.

What We Do

We create learning experiences that build confidence and momentum toward the future students want.

Why We Do It

Confident students are successful learners, so we design tools that keep them moving toward their goals.

How We Do It

  • Our flexible learning tools give students access to content where and when they need it, so that they can learn in sync with their work, school and life.
  • Our immersive experiences let students go deep and master concepts so that they don’t just get the grade they want; they gain skills for life.
  • Our on-demand customer service offers students and faculty the support they need to solve any problem and keep moving forward.

Around Cengage

Our culture fosters collaboration at every turn. Instead of offices with closed doors, you’ll find open minds ready to work together to transform education, with everyone taking a vital part in meeting the challenges. But it’s not all work and no play. At each of our offices you’ll find a mix of hard work and fun activities that include summer picnics, food and craft beer tastings, holiday parties and more.

Our Credo

It's not a traditional mission, vision or values statement but, quite simply, a statement of who we are. The Credo guides the choices we make as a company and as individuals.

Keep Learning

If we’re not learning, we’re not advancing. Through our expanding Learning and Development program, you can take advantage of online and in-person programs to build new skills and advance your career. We also offer tuition reimbursement, so you can build formal continuing education into your professional development plan.

At Cengage, you will work with a team of dedicated professionals building innovative solutions that improve teaching and learning at colleges, universities and libraries. Our employees also support professional development at government agencies, training organizations and corporations around the world.

We are an international organization with career opportunities in editorial, technology, marketing, sales, finance, production, operations, administration and human resources.

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cengage Learning.

    Interview

    The interview process took 2 months from start to finish, but it was very straight forward. I had three phone interviews and one face-to-face. Each interview was professional and there were no "curve balls" thrown at me. It seemed to be heavily focused on making sure my personality and demeanor would be a good fit for my team since there would be a lot of collaboration involved.
