Our Boston Cengage team officially has a new home: The Seaport’s Pier 4!
The new office is in the heart of Boston’s innovation district. Encompassing 120,000 square feet, the space offers a number of features, benefits and offerings for the nearly 600 employees based in the greater Boston area. Some of these include:
An Office Built for Collaboration
One of the core tenets of our ethos is doing more together. In the spirit of this, the new office cut down offices and instead doubled the number of meeting spaces. The floorplan enables a more open dialogue, and “run-in” conversations meant to spark cross-team and department collaboration.
In terms of meeting rooms, the new office features a variety of spaces meant to serve any purpose—from a large, fully-equipped boardroom, to small quiet cars for individual or impromptu small group meetings. Also, the majority of meeting spaces are Zoom-enabled to easily allow for cross-office collaboration.
Creative Inspiration, With a View
Another great perk of our new office location are the spectacular ocean views, and Cengage’s Pier 4 space has plenty of options to ensure that employees can enjoy these spaces as a means of inspiration, relaxation and balance. These include a shared, wi-fi enabled roof deck overlooking the Boston Harbor, as well as private terrace. These areas offer an incredible outdoor space to hold internal events such as Happy Hours, fitness classes and so on, as well as a space for us to host events for the wider Boston community.
A Green Approach to a Happy Workplace
The office building is a brand new, LEED Gold facility with state-of-the art infrastructure and eco-friendly appliances and fixtures. Our team took extreme care to outfit the new space with thoughtful design—from activated lighting to bio-based products, to furniture and carpet with the lowest Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) possible. The space also features:
- Reusable plates, mugs, glassware and cutlery (straws, plasticware, plates and other single-use items are going away)
- Single stream recycling and additional recycling for coffee machine pods, batteries and cell phones
- 18 electric car charging stations (shared with other building tenants)
Perks, Perks, Perks
The new Pier 4 location has some other fun perks meant to enhance the employee experience:
- Access to free, 24/7 fitness center
- Beer on tap
- Wine fridge
- Free snacks
We’re excited to welcome our Cengage family as well as the wider Boston community to our new space. Interested in learning about career opportunities at Cengage? View open positions.
