    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cengage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are incredibly dedicated and the base of product is deep and rich.

    Cons

    The majority of senior management has completely changed within the last year and morale is low as everyone is over-worked and constantly waiting for the shoe to drop on them with the next corporate re-org or down-sizing.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone understands the financial pressure of the bankruptcy filing and the restructure but bringing in a whole new team and constantly "cleaning house" breeds insecurity, and poor morale and doesn't allow people to do their best work. Get to know people before you decide who stays and who goes...
