A solid place to work, to settle and grow roots. A little more difficult to pollinate broadly within.

ProsTeam-oriented culture, work-life balance encouraged

ConsOpportunities require travel and/or move to another location (out of state)

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed for more cross-unit and cross-function opportunities. Pearson's businesses are extremely broad, and networking, leveraging and collaborating is difficult beyond one's own unit or business. What resources, processes and priorities would help facilitate more crosspollination of both ideas and people?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Boston, MA

    I worked at Pearson


    Pros: The benefits were decent and there was a certain autonomy… Cons: Despite being a solid employee--I was given the overflow work from other PMs because I could work more efficiently than some, and I was also… Advice to Senior Management: Work on rewarding and retaining your talent.
