    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cengage full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Manager and individual contributors are all really great people.

    Cons

    - Poor compensation. Even when you know for a fact that you are underpaid, you will not get a market adjustment because the company is doing poorly. - Must be a cheerleader for a merger between two corporations that will result in the unemployment of 3,000+ people. - No job security at all. Cuts are constant and often do not make sense. If you speak up about it at all, you are told that you do no embrace change. Number of people cut each time has come down over the years, but I've seen 100+ people be cut in the same day. The people that remain have to pick up the slack. Constant fear that you are next. Employees are leaving in droves. - Workplace induced depression is a common theme lately.

    I have been working at Cengage full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is great Coworkers are supportive and eager to help Environment is very laid back - dress is casual Customers that you work with are very friendly Management is supportive

    Cons

    None really - I would say the base salary is low but there is so much room for growth that I do not see this being an issue for long.
