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 ManagementAdvice

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.
