No opinion of CEO

I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible in terms of hours and ability to work remotely. Talented staff interested in doing good work.

Cons

Constant department shuffling. A new, company-shaking restructuring every two years. Little thought given to developing employees' skill sets.

Advice to Management

The tumultuous changes during my time at Pearson, while necessary, are utterly bewildering to the rank and file. I feel that layoffs of entire swaths of employees seemed to be the first resort, rather than having the foresight to assess employees' skills and figuring out which ones might be asked to take on new responsibilities.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.
