    I have been working at Cengage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of variety in career options. People are friendly and genuinely helpful.

    Cons

    Pay is poor. Currently in bankruptcy. Inconsistencies from one department to another. Those of us who work really hard get paid the same as those that don't. Big secrecy of salaries, and management tells us not to talk to one another about it. Raises past number of years have been in the 1 to 2% range, so we're sliding backwards with health care cost increases. Only way to get ahead is to move to a different department.

    I have been working at Cengage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Was once a great company to work for but has since changed. Reasonable goals for company is in the past.

    Cons

    Deteriorating benefits with higher employee payment responsibility. Company in bankruptcy. It's not what you know it's who you know. Different rules apply to different employees when trying to climb the ladder for success. Especially in sales and marketing. HR is only looking out for upper management - be leery of working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your senior management team and evaluate how much money it's costing the company in both monetary and employee sacrifices.
