People are leaving more than ever or at least I don’t remember them ever leaving more than now. Every week one or even more people leave with whom it was pleasant to work with. This company doesn't seem to worry much about it, but it worries me a... — read more
I see posts on here from people who have left the industry and say that they are happier and better compensated in their new jobs. If you don't mind sharing, I am wondering which industries you have entered. Places where your skills are valued and... — read more
Cengage; We are giving everyone 5 mental health days before the end of 2021! Also Cengage: But we're not going to follow federal law about vaccines.
Cengage is putting profits over everything and especially its employees. Nothing is as important as the almighty dollar, absolutely nothing. It makes me sick to see people bend over backward to do their best just to be shown the door as the reward... — read more
Cengage employees are nothing more that Lularoe Facebook retailers, completely indoctrinated, hyper, obsessive compulsive, abusive, greedy, exploitive and last but not least completely unproductive. Prove me wrong. Pro-tip: You can’t.
or will there be more in the near future? After the layoffs at Gale, I wonder what else awaits us by the end of the year?
Is it worth it? Is Cengage requiring the vaccine? How are the benefits? Do they provide equipment?
Many say that this reorg only affects Gale, but it seems that no one here can confirm whether it is shuffling or layoffs??? I’m sure however that it won’t boost the morale which in my case is the lowest ever. In fact it does not exist. — read more
Meeting is at 10.
Heard the FH office is Closing and a smaller office will open next year. Any layoffs of the FH staff planned? I know they moved some servers to Mason recently. Tech staff affected?
A few former colleagues have moved to competitors and now I mostly hear from them that it is much better there. I don't believe much in those stories that the grass is so much greener elsewhere, but it's gotten so bad here that I'm starting to... — read more
Not too long ago I won't from lowly learning consultant to account executive and apparently all I had to do was sit at home for a year to earn this prestigious title. Did anyone else get a fake title and no substantial pay raise not even enough to... — read more
Wondering where the haters went since we announced another stellar earnings quarter. Looks like we did the right thing in shedding the dead weight. Bye haters.
I always wanted to get promotion and I worked very hard to get it. When I finally achieved that, it became clear to me that promotion at Cengage is not a great luck. Ok, I have a higher pay, but I have so much more work and so much more... — read more
Anyone else concerned about the prospect of Cengage moving their job to permanent work-from-home when it costs an arm and a leg to run air conditioning (and barely cools the place down to a temperature you can be productive in)?
Of course, this is not the best option, but I wonder how many people agreed to a lower pay just to get out of here as soon as possible? I am in a big dilemma whether to accept such an offer. I don’t believe there are many of those who got better pay... — read more
“Fail Fast”. Still cracks me up
I mean, big layoffs? They may not even need cuts given how many people have left on their own lately.
Why are there still a lot of talented people here who are wasting time and who have allowed their careers to stagnate here? Cengage does not deserve talented and skilled employees at all. They are the most devalued here, so it is not clear to me... — read more
I’m not kidding, how long can this management by attrition approach, this slog by attrition actually maintain itself? I’m actually surprised this old sow is still plodding along.
To be honest, I’ve never worked in a worse company before that has so many problems that need to be fixed. I don't understand why everything should be a mess here? Why is there no will to at least solve one problem at a time? I seem to be asking a... — read more
Why is it this site is able to make money off the suffering of others, the suffering their families go through, the layoffs, the terminations etc. but god forbid someone writes the truth on this site or has an opinion that differs from the low IQ... — read more

“Engagement specialists”, they’re neither. It’s been a while do they still have the worthless specialists? They were nothing but intra territorial gossip spreaders and professional nags.
Except when it comes to sharing salary bands because it's SOOOOOOOOOOO complicated.
Heard report from inside source out Boston that huge changes are coming , soon cengage will be relying on inside sales out of Kentucky, consolidating districts removing DM's, in report DM's referred to as expendable grocery store clerks. I agree. ... — read more
It's been over 2 months since the FY ended and no earnings call has been scheduled. What's up?
Now that Cengage has been outproducing the industry, what is the next best course of action. Let's see... Start hiring your new employees from McGraw-Hill??? What a Foolish thigs to do... McGraw-Hill never wanted to complete the merger so it was... — read more
I feel like I'm going to get the boot any minute now. Can't focus at all because of it.
People are right, there is no point in complaining about all the things that are wrong in this company, but one should be dedicated to job hunting instead. How lucky have you been so far looking for a new job? I got to the interview phase twice and... — read more
That is, of course, sarcasm. I think the employees of this company who remain loyal in spite of everything, deserve to be better informed about some things, for example about layoffs. What do they really want to achieve by hiding information about... — read more
Makes it obvious how many trolls on here don't even work for Cengage. Get a life people.
I remember witnessing the transformation of my peers over the years in the regime. Every NES I would see some of the people I started with and over time the kool aid drinkers would transform into weird monsters while those who didn’t imbibe would... — read more
The schools in my territory are requiring vaccine compliance in order to conduct our calls in person on campus. Since this 'vaccine' isn't a common vaccine and does not consist of inactive covid virus particles, I'm worried because I don't want to... — read more
Heard rumors of small layoffs in May, as they push more work to vendors.
It made me laugh when I saw that someone wrote that Cengage is the same as all other publishing companies. Really? The situation is quite difficult in this industry, but it seems to me that this company has become much worse than the competitors from... — read more
Who is really safe here? Answer - no one. I’ve seen so many colleagues whose experience and knowledge that were invaluable to the company are now gone. Over the years I’ve seen our best and worst discarded like yesterday’s news. I’m at the point... — read more
