Very flexible work schedule.

Current Employee - Project Manager in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Project Manager in Boston, MA

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Company, or at least the division I worked in, uses very outdated technology and immature IT policies.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 Management

Modernize and standardize corporate processes and technologies.
