    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cengage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - The culture is positive, motivating and very collaborative
    - Work brings great opportunities for professional development
    - The CEO and Executive Team are top leaders with great vision and corporate strategy
    - benefits are good
    - Everyone is so nice, it's very unusual to have such a large group of genuine, hard working individuals

    Cons

    The company is a leader in driving change in education, which is amazing and exciting to be a part of, but things move fast, so having an adaptable work style would be beneficial to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing job! I am super excited to be part of your team and under your direction. You've always made the right decisions and implemented strong strategies for business success. Lead and I will follow.

    Contract Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Did a 5-10 minute phone interview with their head of recruiting. He started of the conversation by telling me he let go of their recruiter and was looking for her replacement. What a way to make someone feel very thrilled won’t you say? The guy was a complete jerk over the phone . Made me feel very uncomfortable by asking me questions as if I was in a prison cell. Avoid interviewing with this company if possible. Their recruiting staff needs more professionalism skills along with some courtesy to folks on the phone.
