Thread regarding Cengage layoffs

What are the remaining values of this company?

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 why they are even waiting for untalented managers to push them out the door.

I was hired and started working for Cengage Wednesday of last week. I was unable to attend training due to me being transported via ambulance to the hospital because I had Colitis. I logged on today and got an email that I was fired due to them cutting employees. Why would you hire someone for 4 days and is that even legal?

I left cengage 6 months ago and took a cut in pay to start, but already I'm making 30% more than when I was at cengage and much much happier. I think millinials and zoomers live in a fantasy world where everything will be given to them up front, it's very shortsighted. In the real world we grow and learn new skills, not always will the grand prize be offered on the first day.

Anyone who left Cengage for less pay is doing it wrong. They pay bottom of the market salaries and merit increases don't even keep up with inflation. After a few years at Cengage you are losing. Between the pay, culture and the buffoonish, unqualified management I don't know why anyone with options would choose to stay here.

Intelligent people left for less pay knowing if they just get their foot in the door in a short amount of time they’d be so much better off than suffering at singuage. Less intelligent low ambition types are still there though doing their best to maintain their mediocrity and stabbing their buddies in the back to maintain just the status quo

All the talented people I knew at Cengage left. I can't think of a single person I know who had options and decided to stay.
