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

Manager (Former Employee)
Upper Saddle River, NJ

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

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementLaying 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
