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

Pros

I've been with Pearson for over ten years and continue to look forward to many great years. Salary could be slightly improved to match current market. However, great people and great working environment are a huge plus.

Cons

Certain time-to-market based products can be overwhelming and requires everyone to pitch in as needed. However, the end results are great products for all age groups.

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pearson Education used to be a fantastic workplace. The culture and drive, the communication and dedication to mission were extraordinary.

    Cons

    Recent Senior Management changes have created a culture of fear and anxiety. This fear inhibits creativity, inhibits accountability, inhibits collaboration, and it was getting progressively worse when I resigned in June, 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incent your employees by paying them fairly and by providing career development.
