    I have been working at Pearson

    Pros

    - great work/life balance
    - able to work from home
    - some professional growth opportunities
    - great benefits

    Cons

    - not a very enthusiastic environment/culture
    - leadership not connected or knowledgeable of products across the company.
    - constantly "re-inventing" the wheel every time there is a re-organization
    - at least one major re-org a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that the leadership teams across Pearson should interact with each other to take an inventory of the resources that exist and/or available so that the company can strive towards being efficient.

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful colleagues, ample opportunities to take on more responsibilities within one's position.

    Cons

    Contract positions have a two year maximum; Pearson is outsourcing more and more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, management does a wonderful job. However, hiring vendors and contract employees instead of staff vastly drops project quality.
