    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.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Good benefits
    Stimulating work

    Cons

    Leaders and managers have no vision. Innovation is always talked about, but I rarely see it.
    Wrong people (managers, authors/contractors) get credit for your hard work.
    Company has gotten too big and as a result too impersonal. I barely have a chance to talk to upper management because they are always too busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I like the people I work with, and I enjoy the actual work. However, management could provide clearer information and feedback about what goals they want us to accomplish.
    Give credit where credit is due, and provide more specific positive feedback on our accomplishments (not just a general "thank-you."). Since bonuses, promotions, and pay increases are a rarity in this economic environment, more frequent positive reinforcement is even more important.
