    There's just a feeling in the Boston office that we're a publishing company turning tech. So there are a lot of changes and I honestly feel like I have an impact even in such a global, large company. Everyone wants the same thing: to make the software better. To make education practices better. They also seem to take care of their own. Promoting from within versus hiring. This makes it so your manager actually knows the product they're in charge of.

    Cons

    There is a lot of bureaucracy, especially because of all the fundamental changes occurring at Pearson in a global level. It's an old company that has its hands in a lot of places is redefining itself. Because of this, managers and higher ups don't exactly know where they stand and therefore leave.

    Advice to Management

    You're focusing on tech and that's good for your future, but some aspects are still clinging to old ways and don't want to adapt. This is bad. Squash this. Adapt or fail.
