    I have been working at Cengage Learning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I find Cengage Learning very motivating. Employees and teams are encouraged to be creative and exercise their best judgement, and are generally supported when they do so. Many employees participate in internal and external learning activities, and most teams are proud to contribute to educational content and solutions. The current executive team has placed a high priority on delighting the student user and the importance of digital solutions. Compensation and benefits are also satisfactory.

    Cons

    Cengage Learning is one of three large established players in an industry which is rapidly evolving, and the company spends too much time, money, and effort preserving the existing print textbook business (which continues to decline) rather than the growing digital business (which requires a more mature understanding of customer satisfaction). Cengage product teams generally believe that their content is more important than ease of use, and they regularly ignore the threats posed by entrepreneurs in the education field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retraining hundreds of print product managers to become software solution innovators was an admirable goal, but it only succeeded in pockets. The several dozen software development managers that have been hired recently are dramatically outnumbered, and most product teams are making rookie software development mistakes which will be expensive to correct. Reward those who were not afraid to innovate and give them the time and clearing they need for their new business models to flourish.
