Pearson was a very good company in the past. Today, head for the hills. Total chaos.

Pros

Many smart people, great benefits, diverse and interesting work. Work-life balance.

Cons

There is no leadership today, and multiple, in-congruent strategies. Senior management is dictatorial and fiercely ego driven. There is contempt held for other divisions, and departments. Dissent is not tolerated. There is very little opportunity for growth, and no career guidance. Lost its values of being kind and decent and today treats employees like furniture. Move from print -to digital is chaos.

Advice to Management

Laying off good people to save money? You could care less about intellectual capital, only play favoritism. There is a way to lay people off , which are humane and just. VPs are the most arrogant I have ever worked with in any industry. Value employees, value their talents, let them speak.

    Pros

    Highly engaged and interested peers who work tirelessly despite the many challenges they encounter on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Very high turnover in leadership that means many efforts are abandoned, new jargon and lingo are introduced as new people want to make their mark, regular workers seem incredulous to such regular and inconsequential changes.
