    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic life/work flexibility, not micro-managed, ability and freedom to create my own programs. Very happy with my specific group.

    Cons

    Ever since Fallon took over, it has started to feel like we're a bunch of used car salesmen. There's so much talk of efficacy, but the reality feels like it's more about lining the pockets of senior management, being in bed with the government and gaining power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the positive vibe Marjorie Scardino pumped into all of us. We'd be happier.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Pearson.

    Interview Details

    First phone screening by the recruiter, he then brings you in for an "open house session" as they call it. I can admit I was a bit nervous. As I sat down with 3 different managers for the position. This was my first time doing a group interview session. Very intense process ,unfortunately I did not get the position.
