I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Pearson is very forward looking. A leader in their industry in many aspects, they "downsized" me along with others due to the digital inroads our society is making.

Cons

There are several divisions and it seems to me there is a lot of duplication or little synergy taking place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Coordinate communications and systems better between divisions

    I have been working at Pearson full-time

    Pros

    Great people, very flexible work schedule (support telecommuting, flextime), healthy annual bonus, global company with lots of locations and work opportunities. Decent benefits. Interesting products and great corporate mission.

    Cons

    Company, or at least the division I worked in, uses very outdated technology and immature IT policies. Some duplication/disorganization in terms of vendor/supplier policies and how various international groups work together. Longtime CEO, Marjorie Scardino's recent decision to step down (Oct 2012), may result in some uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize and standardize corporate processes and technologies.

    There is a need for better and more consistent communication and collaboration among business and technical organizations.
