    I have been working at Pearson full-time for 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.

    Pros

    The best people to work with who are truly passionate about education. Great products to represent. Pay and benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Lots of change with most publishing companies as they transition from print to digital and remain viable in this market. Big shake ups at the top with little hiring going on for the next 4-6 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have she'd some good talent. Keep them in mind as the market improves and hiring resumes.
