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 Management

Coordinate communications and systems better between divisions

    Pros

    Culture and Lifestyle are good, with a positive goal for product development. Generally can be proud of what you are working on and it's impact on society.

    Cons

    Career advancement is limited. Pay hasn't kept pace with inflation even with positive reviews, and someone hired off the street will almost always be given more pay for the same job than someone hired internally. Makes it hard to justify not looking outside the company after a while.


  2. A company moving forward
