I worked at Pearson full-time for less than a year

Pros

Some nice people, ability to actually work on some real projects.

Cons

Terrible pay. I mean terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that people need to make a living wage and you've got smart, talented people in lower level positions that really do want to work, want to make a difference. Don't just have them make copies and file things.
