    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cengage as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't see any positives. As a freelancer for the past 15 years, this is the very FIRST time I did not get paid by a client.

    Cons

    Not getting paid. Was completely surprised by this, given the size and reputation of Cengage. Followed up 4 times to get payment, but no one ever responded. My email management program indicated my emails were opened - but, obviously, never acted upon.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your freelancers.
