Approves of CEO

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

Pros

You really can have the opportunity to change the world through education. Big company with big impact. Clear digital leader and fundamentally sound. Opportunities for growth if you plan well and work hard

Cons

Lots of politics and its as much about who you know than what you know. Long history of acquiring companies that fizzled because they weren't solid businesses in the first place.

Advice to Management

Services are great but don't forget about the foundation of the company (content). Ignore investing in content at your peril.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You work on your own schedule and are doing important work for children and in education.

    Cons

    You must be able to be your own boss , able to stay focused and committed to your work because you are working from home.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to make sure there are incentives to retain workers because it is very hard to stay focused with no one to talk to when there is a problem.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pearson as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and additional pay for excellent attendance. Good work/life balance. Never had to do any work after clocked out.

    Cons

    May get boring in the long run and repetitive. Lot of interaction with applicants leading to wide ranges of experiences, good and bad ones. Duties may escalate if superior leaves, duties that were not originally planned.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try to reward employees better so as to avoid such high turnover and discontent with salary. Allow interns to use facilities. Add programs to create bonds and strengthen employee morale and bonding
