I have been working at Pearson as a contractor

Pros

The atmosphere is very calm and cozy plus the flexible timings are a relief. Even work from home can be counted as a pro of working in PE.

Cons

Office Politics I would say.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most people are very nice to work with. Benefits are good. Hours are good and vacation time is decent. Pretty flexible for most positions if you need to deal with family things etc.

    Cons

    Pearson is a publishing company, used to making print books. They are trying to transition to digital products and services, but are having a hard time. They are currently cutting headcount overall and trying to figure out new business models.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salaries in order to attract the most qualified people. If you want to build the best products and services, you need to hire the best people. Communicate a clear business plan.
