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

    Pros

    Pearson is full of talented people who are friendly, direct, and always pushing for results. Pearson's product line is outstanding and a leader in the industry. I love working for a company that has a positive impact on the world we live in.

    Cons

    I hear some people say, "Well that's the way we've always done it" or they are hesitant to change. There are only a few of these people but not having an open mind, will prevent the company from growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing. There are checks and balances with this company that keep it and the employees in line, focused on results and driving the business.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Listen to the people! We are Pearson.
