I have been working at Pearson full-time

Pros

Great people, benefits, company mission. It's fun being part of a company that helps people improve their lives. New CEO John Fallen is great. Very international company so you might travel a bit. When Pearson does something, it tries to be great.

Cons

Slow to change, slow to seize opportunities. Pay is average and career progression is bad. There are too many senior managers without the skills to take us into the future holding onto their seats. Many departments work in silos. Products are average to good. Not cutting edge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in leaders with digital skills and backgrounds. Make faster decisions.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Commitment to high quality digital educational materials. Flexible hours. Well set-up for working from home. Very smart coworkers. Friendly. Supportive.

    Cons

    Advancement path is not always clear. Space is limited, and changing to more open space with minimum amount of privacy. Company is rapidly changing to digital: a pro because it is the future of education and publishing, a con if change makes you nervous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need clear advancement paths for digital developers. Could use some change management procedures.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great health insurance coverage
    Enjoyed all the free food

    Cons

    Supervisors are not best. Definitely not leaders. They treat agents like simple minded people and not like people of their level.
