Pros

There are some great people at Cengage and the open work environment is collaborative and fast paced. Management is trying to offer transparency to their goals and vision with frequent meetings and regular phone Q/As.

Cons

Very "be in the office" centric when the technology is in place to still actively collaborate remotely and be productive.

Advice to Management

Keep up the communication as you've been doing - the company morale, I feel, is improving and collaboration among groups is getting a lot better.

    I have been working at Cengage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Organizationally, Cengage is in a state of transition. Digital products are transforming the publishing industry and Cengage is and has been committed to transforming itself both culturally and technologically. The environment is progressive, innovative and open. The teams are centered around getting customers brought into the development process and using their feedback to guide development. They are highly committed to value and quality and so far I have had a lot of fun working here.

    Cons

    Some of the "old guard" are reluctant to give up on their book publishing roots. They are challenged to accept some of the change the industry is forcing them to move toward. Old book publishing processes are slow to be transformed and are hindering the pace at which the company is moving into the future. I will say that I believe the change laggards recognize the need for change, and are trying to be prudent about changes. The change will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. We are doing the right things, and the pace should continue to increase if we keep going the way we are.
