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 remain grounded and we had a lot of fun mocking those of you who were so easy to manipulate so eager to become explicit participants in the hive mind, the little pets. It’s no different in who was obedient during the ‘scamdemic’ doing exactly what they were told, feeding off the smug satisfaction behind their useless masks signaling their false virtues reinforced by state media and the horrific politicians they admired, it’s no different and very revealing to those of us higher up who decide which of you stays and which of you goes away...

Cenron continues to lead the EdTech space. Activations are up proving that Unlimited has been an unmitigated success saving students millions of dollars.
schadenfreude, a German word (should be familiar to all Cengage minions,) is defined as deriving pleasure from others misfortunes.
My guess is most of the people on this site left Cengage a while ago and just come back to troll the poor tortured souls who are either untalented or too lazy to have exited.
Imagine being so pozzed and brainwashed as to continue to defend this 'organization'... No campus at the moment is being thrilled or engaged with mindtapper
the one who's whining about whining
that's management material there. should of kept them
You all realize there are other jobs out there, right... No one has to stay anywhere, where they are unhappy. You can complain, be miserable, and just use an anonymous site to vent your frustrations, or you can spend time looking for a new job. It seems like the people on here are the ones who are bringing morale down and seem so angry. Full disclosure- I was let go from Cengage a year or so ago, and it was the best thing to happen to me. I'm not bitter, I don't care to bash anyone or anything, just find a new job and move on. I stumbled across this site when someone who is still there asked me if I've ever looked at this. Wow, so glad I'm out. Others should do the same or suck it up and do what you're paid to do.
Also the never ending change and improvements, grand plans and annual goals that are never achieved, but keep leadership occupied and give them a sense of purpose while the associates figure out some way to get anything done.
Truth be told, Cengage has many things in common with a cult. Verbal abuse, cognitive dissonance, Stockholm syndrome. The higher ups all seem to receive the same tutelage: treat your reports like garbage, induce loyalty through abuse. Unbelievable that this is looked at as a management strategy.
I am not vaccinated, I am in the control group of the experiment.
Cengage today is no different than the Soviet Union. A centrally planned, monolithic enterprise where all dissenters are sent to the Gulag.
Common sense is far too common, compliance is a virtue, submission is a virtue. Don’t wear the mask, wear the mask, get the vaccine, wear the mask, don’t wear the mask because science is like Netflix for obedience, it’s unlimited
Whenever I'm faced with the moral challenge in doing what is morally right or to do what I'm told, I always do what I'm told. Our leaders whether political or professional know what is best.
Concur, the interest of the corporation supersedes the interest of the individual
I think when you're faced with the option of thinking for yourself or to submit, it's always best to submit to your employer.
Over a 25 year career, My NSM/NES experiences consisted of drinking free booze and expensive wine, sleeping through sessions and marveling at all the married women just begging to have a fling!
The meetings were all completely worthless and yes, they were showcases for the "in crowd" or climbers to enter their echo chamber.
Virtually all of those annoying/silliy and vapid people were eventually fired. Some to this day cannot find employment because they were so untalented.
The rest are bouncing job to job, trying to eek out a few more years and before calling it quits, and probably looking back arrogantly on what an impact they had on learning.
Obedience to your leaders should be your priority, full stop.
I guess if that's what your ego requires you to believe just to get through the day.
