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?
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
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
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.
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
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)?
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
“Fail Fast”. Still cracks me up
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
I mean, big layoffs? They may not even need cuts given how many people have left on their own lately.
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

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
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.
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
Except when it comes to sharing salary bands because it's SOOOOOOOOOOO complicated.
“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.
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?
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
Makes it obvious how many trolls on here don't even work for Cengage. Get a life people.
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
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
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
This will affect a lot of people. Any inside news for all us working in NGL?
I have been preparing for the layoffs that will most likely follow and I am actively looking for a new job. The situation is awful and I don't see any reason for optimism. I can’t even get to the interview phase and I’m getting pretty desperate. I... — read more
Supposedly, there'll be some layoffs this month. Whoever knows more, please be kind and share.
On 3/5/21 the rumor is it’s being announced that one of Cengage’s siloed businesses is being sold off to Pearson. I’’ll give you a hint, it’s the only brand actually worth anything.
I’m an AE and feel like I’m on the chopping block. My check went in last night (my bank releases when they get it not when it’s dated) and it’s way more than it should be. We don’t have any incentive or bonus payouts this week to my knowledge. And I... — read more
Years ago at a Town Hall a young Editorial SJW asked a question about "Gender/Income Inequality" and "CEO pay". MH calmly listened and then suggested that Cengage was not going to pay more, as were a mission based company intent on saving students... — read more
This question is for the business types. Many here see doom and gloom but how many more millions can Cengage lose before it is actually taken seriously? I’m not an expert in taxes or business but obviously there have to be major layoffs, the... — read more
