    Former Employee - Test Administrator in Durham, NC

    I worked at Pearson part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy work generally nice co-workers. People come and go fast, so better get to know someone while they last!

    Cons

    Regional manager does not communicate with managers. No benefits. Work long shifts with no breaks, sometimes 12 to 13 hours at a time with no breaks, no lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

  2.  

    Started very well but they overuse contractors and provide no grievance process.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Centennial, CO

    I worked at Pearson as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The basic premise of Pearson products and philosophy are good. Pearson eCollege in Centennial is being further integrated into Pearson Education which will make things better in the future.

    Cons

    Pearson eCollege has an environment which overuses contractors. The management is allowed to bully its contractors and can easily dismiss them for grievances without providing a process for complaints that is confidential. Management intimidates its contractors and employees which generates general mistrust where each person is constantly in CYA mode.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a method for contractors to report abuses in a confidential way to eliminate intimidation practices by directors and managers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
