    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Working with some great people
    -Some interesting products and books
    -Okay benefits
    -Good company events

    Cons

    -Awful leadership who is disconnected with their employees and customers
    -Very hard to get a promotion, stuck in same role for years, a lot of layoffs
    -Below standard, barely liveable pay.
    -At the recent Boston town hall, someone was brave enough to ask the CEO to his face why we receive such poor pay and low raises compared to higher management. Like a true corporate CEO, he said his "figures" told him all our pay was equal and high for the industry.

    Advice to Management

    I make $30,000 before taxes. How much do YOU make?

    And please let us know what is going on and why people are being laid off, and why others are being made to work three or so different jobs. That girl who asked the salary question isn't the only one unhappy with her pay and the lack of transparency with management.
