    I worked at Cengage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cengage Learning was once (during the Thomson years) a powerful higher education company with some of the best authors and textbooks on the market.

    Cons

    Now in bankruptcy due to mismanagement by Apax and former senior management. I can't make a judgement on current management, but from the outside looking in, they seem to be just trying to hang on and waiting for the big payoff when company assets are sold off.

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

    Pros

    Discounted yoga classes once a week. The Boston location has a shuttle from South Station and one from North Station. There is a workout room and a cafe on the first floor of the building. The medical/dental benefits are decent. Management holds meetings to keep employees updated on major decisions.

    Cons

    The pay is fairly low. There is an opportunity to give feedback on upper-level management, but not directly on one's supervisor.
