Current Employee - Sales Representative in Columbus, OH
Current Employee - Sales Representative in Columbus, OH

I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, high level of autonomy in position, good company values. This is a great place for working mothers and fathers, as flex time can be arranged, management is understanding of the fact that unexpected things come up involving family.

Cons

Communication between senior management and reps is almost non-existent. Sales numbers are handled by one person and not double checked. We receive our sales performance numbers in March and only have 24 hours to dispute errors, not enough time for a thorough review of the information, especially when some reps handled more than 200 accounts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication about major and minor changes as they're happening cuts down on confusion.

    The world is flat at Pearson

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits but little chance of advancement in Production/Design.

    Cons

    They're flattening many departments eliminating any chance of promotion and putting middle managers on the unemployment line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look of who you are putting out of work: Some of your most loyal and hard working employees. And you're not even sure how many people you will need in your Integrated Workflow. Does this make sense until it's implemented?
