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 Management

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

    Pros

    Produces many great educational resources, awesome flexible work policies and benefits, but individual supervisors can decide to deny these at will and employees have little recourse. Pay is reasonable, though lagging behind inflation in recent years.

    Cons

    Due to multiple mergers and re-orgs in the last 6 years, too many divergent systems, lack of communication among departments and divisions. Not enough resources, especially staff to get the job done well. Not enough focus on customer. No clear way to deal with a bully boss who is not supervised closely enough. I enjoyed working here more in the first few years than I do now. Sales goals and comp plans have changed to make it challenging to achieve the same income I did a few years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Hurry up with the standardization of systems, IT, processes. The cufstomers won't wait for us to get out act together. We've already angered too many of them.

    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
