    I have been working at Cengage full-time

    Pros

    Great people, interesting and fulfilling work, ability to connect with many people. Job flexibility is great if you have the right manager. Lots of opportunity for movement within departments or into other areas.

    Cons

    Some people in lower management positions are not qualified.There are multiple layers of management in some groups, and a shortage of people to actually do the work. Not moving fast enough to deal with a changing market landscape.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding layers of management, and focus on growing the areas that actually DO the work.

    I worked at Cengage full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    some very nice and hard working people there. if you need your head down and do not make wakes you can get by so if you are in it for the pay and benefits its a great fit. the benefits are good and you have to flexibility for your family.

    Cons

    if you cross the wrong person you can be shut out. change is slow and getting your ideas to the rights person is difficult. if you are not in the in group and can be shut out. No neutral party that you can talk to if you have an issues. good people are let go and mediocre people hang around or get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    make it work,
