Approves of CEO

I have been working at Cengage full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

With a new CEO and lots of positive initiatives underway, Cengage is poised for great things. New guy Michael Hanson has hit the ground running and we're hopeful that CL will again become the innovative game changer it should be. Smart, friendly people who want to make a difference -- that's what makes this company great. But if you're looking for a place to "hide" and not be challenged, this isn't the place for you. . . change is the only constant around here. Shift happens!

Cons

At times there's not alignment across all groups, which can make our jobs tougher.

Advice to Management

Get. on. the. same. page. and. work. together.

    I have been working at Cengage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture: relaxed, casual. Friendly managers. Domestic partner benefits! Very low attrition. Coworkers are mostly highly-skilled and intelligent people who are very helpful. The pay is what you would want but not usually actually expect. 37.5 hour work week.

    Cons

    Expensive benefits if you're getting them for your spouse/domestic partner. Parking can sometimes be a pain, but it's not unbearable. Short, unpaid lunch. 37.5 hour work week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
