Current Employee - Graphic Artist in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Pearson as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Only plus is working at home

Cons

Terribly disorganized
forced to create graphics at a breakneck pace
Any semblance of quality or value in the art work is brutally discouraged as it raises the bar for the brand and costs them money so you are held to a very low denominator of creating poor quality clip art for the K-12 material.
It is a hectic rush with numerous and varied lead artist giving you conflicting direction and harried producers pushing you to work longer hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider becoming a provider of QUALITY educational resources not the low grade cheap material that is the driving style now.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pearson is full of talented people who are friendly, direct, and always pushing for results. Pearson's product line is outstanding and a leader in the industry. I love working for a company that has a positive impact on the world we live in.

    Cons

    I hear some people say, "Well that's the way we've always done it" or they are hesitant to change. There are only a few of these people but not having an open mind, will prevent the company from growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing. There are checks and balances with this company that keep it and the employees in line, focused on results and driving the business.
