    Pros

    If you are looking for a career, then I would highly recommend not working here. During the interview process, they promise you the world of opportunities in career advancement, but that is not the case. They require a bachelors degree, but basically you work in a call center dealing with disrespectful sales reps and professors over the phone. The management, in my opinion was very unprofessional. They conducted yearly reviews where you talk about your career goals, but these "yearly reviews" were totally a mask, the management could care less about your career goals. Do not let the fact that you will be working for "Pearson" fool you, its a call center. If you have other job offers, then I highly recommend gong with the other job or you will get "stuck" in FFS.

    Cons

    The benefits were great! PTO right away.

    It's not about how good you work, or how long you've been there.

    Pros

    I loved the people I dealt with in the school districts. There were wonderful people who stood by me when I needed help finding a new position after Pearson closed out office.

    Cons

    I worked for Pearson for years. I thought I would retire from there. I had a good history, good connections, and did my job very well. Then they decided it was no longer profitable to hire Americans, and they could make more money outsourcing the work to India. They closed the office I worked at, and layed us all off. It was devastating, at my age, and in the 2012 economy. I'm very grateful to have found a wonderful job with another company.
