    Pros

    The overall attitude of Pearson and its employees is fairly easy-going and promotes a sense of friendliness. The benefits package is solid. Management is generally understanding and willing to work with employees regarding both professional needs and allowing for personal needs when necessary.

    Cons

    There is a lack of upward mobility. This seems to be across the board. A steady stream of changes have kept the business from being able to move forward on a lot of internal projects. Many groups are left without any sense of real structure for years at a time. Its expected that everyone be satisfied with maintaining the status quo amongs the non-management employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of smart employees with a solid understanding of their part of the business. It would benefit the company to take better advantage of that.

    Pros

    It's important to note that this review is for Pearson Custom, not Pearson Education as a whole. The environment at Custom is vastly different from else. The best reason to work there are also the worst - everyone's responsibilities are very clearly defined and you are never expected to go above or beyond. Benefits are pretty great.

    Cons

    There's nowhere to move in Custom. There's only 2 levels of work. The management is absolutely awful. They treat their employees with no respect and there is a culture of finger pointing. Management will often be sure to find a way to find you at fault for something that may have been out of your hands. If you attempt to loop in your manager for help early on, you will get completely mixed messages about whether this is appropriate and will often be told one thing now, and one thing later. There's no creativity, no room to do anything outside of your role. In short, thank your lucky stars they hire you on 6 month contracts and take that as your out.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are there to support their employees, not use them as scapegoats.
