    Current Employee - Graphic Artist in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Pearson as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Only plus is working at home

    Cons

    Terribly disorganized
    forced to create graphics at a breakneck pace
    Any semblance of quality or value in the art work is brutally discouraged as it raises the bar for the brand and costs them money so you are held to a very low denominator of creating poor quality clip art for the K-12 material.
    It is a hectic rush with numerous and varied lead artist giving you conflicting direction and harried producers pushing you to work longer hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider becoming a provider of QUALITY educational resources not the low grade cheap material that is the driving style now.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
