Always Learning...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Pearson full-time

ProsI work with intelligent, kind, hard-working, people. Summer Fridays are great. Flexible work hours. Never a hassle to have time off or take vacation.

ConsUpper management doesn't care about the peons. We are under staffed and over worked. Too many changes too soon will crash and burn the company that was once (before I was here) a pleasure to work for. No room for growth unless you want to go into Sales.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people. Listen to the people! We are Pearson.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
