    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a pretty decent place to work, great pay and benefits, very, very good benefits in fact.

    Still a lot of good people work here who believe in the mission.

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs. They literally never stop re-organizing. It's a bit Orwellian.

    The latest re-org was the big one for the US. Four different businesses merged into one. It took 18 months just to name the managers. Now all these managers continue to manage as if they are still in their old roles. They micromanage and lead by fear. No one tries to learn anything new. No one has a holistic view. I seriously doubt any single member of the management team has a complete picture of this business.

    Now they have entered the bastion of scoundrels, cost cutting. Seems like Pearson cannot create any good products, and can no longer sell their crap products, revenue is tanking. I think the plan is too squeeze the employees and bleed them dry so Wall Street is happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no clue. While John Fallon will admit that we are operationally challenged, I doubt he knows the full severity of the situation.

    Communicate. The president of the division I work for has not even bothered to host one conference call this year.

    My only suggestion, hire some real managers, someone to actually run the business, day to day, in the trenches. VPs are a dime a dozen at Pearson. They have no real power. It seems the various Presidents spend their time pontificating vision. It seems no one minds the store anymore.

    Hire a hot shot that has ran a company like the company you want to be.
