I have been working at Pearson part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

It is flexible in the hours work and the commitment to a project. The projects are usually interesting.

Cons

The projects don't offer as much intense work as I play for so sometimes I have taken off from another job and am left holding the bag.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes the supervisor get a little maverick and don't act as expected.

    I worked at Pearson full-time for 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

    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.
