    Overall great company but the management can sometimes hold staff back from reaching full potential.

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than an year)


    Member of a large global team working for a worthy cause. Good benefits, continued education is encouraged.


    Because it is so large, everything moves very slowly, and it is hard to make any meaningful change. Innovative and creative ideas were shot down because they weren't "tradition".

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Pearson.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who'd seen my resume floating around and she connected me with the Editor I came to work for. The interviewing process was seamless--they were both very impressed with previous editorial experience. The editor was unexpectedly enthusiastic about previous sales experience, as he felt EAs should transition into sales positions.

    Interview Questions
    • The editor I interviewed with was very interested in previous sales experience, almost trying to sell me on a Sales career before I entered Editorial.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was very little wiggle room as far as compensation packages go.
