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

    Pros

    People really care and are trying to do what's right. People really want to do great things and educate others.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment owing to destabilized, inconsistent, and contrary edicts from Pearson Upper Management. Absolute lack of focus or precision in rolling out new policies and/or procedures. Internal/external politics across the various business units, regions, and the various publishing houses now working under the Pearson banner, have lead to stagnation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is running on ether. Listen to your people. There are people trying to make it clear how awful things are and how out of control the business is. Stop listening to consultants and big picture thinkers and listen to the people who work for you and care.

    I worked at Pearson full-time

    Pros

    Some great coworkers, much to learn for anyone

    Cons

    Some people in leadership roles are more like bullies and not like leaders at all. They rule by fear rather than surround themselves with smart people with fresh ideas that might not always agree with their ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what is best for the business rather than what you perceive as best for your career at the expensive of the business.
