    Former Employee - Media Project Manager in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Media Project Manager in Boston, MA

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Good location, occasional events, etc.
    - Professional development if you choose to exercise it

    Cons

    - The worst HR department I have ever dealt with (local dept that is; national ESC is pretty good)
    - Ineffective managers retained and promoted
    - Inability to retain quality employees -- some were let go (???), some left because they weren't challenged
    - Micro-management. Goal posts constantly shifting. Upper level politics filtering down to new employees, tainting our performance and creating additional burdens during peak busy season
    - A hundred different data systems, most of which are antiquated but have a respectable face-lift. Different teams clinging to their technologies to stave off irrelevance

    Current Employee - Project Management in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Pearson full-time

    Pros

    Many wonderful, knowledgable, and talented people. Good company and benefits.

    Cons

    Senior management feels the need to be in absolute control. Big micromanagers. Do not know how to communicate. Very heavy workload in the summer, slow rest of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust employees to do their job. Do not be so regimented and by the book. Show a concern for employees as people not as dates on a schedule. Stop making mountains out of mole hills.
