Pleasant worklife, but little direction

Print Production (Former Employee) Boston, MA

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
