    Pros

    Creative people who care about company products and customer experience, and always strive to be successful. Allow employees to be creative.

    Cons

    Structured company with lots of layers. Multiple office locations and more collaborations are needed. Management needs to hear more from the bottom. Needs to create more career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flat. more opportunities for bottom-up communications and more opportunities for development.

    I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Organizationally, Cengage is in a state of transition. Digital products are transforming the publishing industry and Cengage is and has been committed to transforming itself both culturally and technologically. The environment is progressive, innovative and open. The teams are centered around getting customers brought into the development process and using their feedback to guide development. They are highly committed to value and quality and so far I have had a lot of fun working here.

    Cons

    Some of the "old guard" are reluctant to give up on their book publishing roots. They are challenged to accept some of the change the industry is forcing them to move toward. Old book publishing processes are slow to be transformed and are hindering the pace at which the company is moving into the future. I will say that I believe the change laggards recognize the need for change, and are trying to be prudent about changes. The change will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. We are doing the right things, and the pace should continue to increase if we keep going the way we are.
