I have been working at Pearson full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The people you work with are true team players and generally get along really well. You have to work with people from lots of different departments on projects and I feel like the good friendly working culture there enables the success of this.

Cons

The company should place a new focus on digital teams : software developers, app designers, and programmers - they may cost more to employ but the benefits would be far reaching with the future of publishing looking to go entirely digital!

    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.
