    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Fortunately most of the folks here are great to work with. Company overall is philanthropic, and helpful during natural disasters.

    Lack of opportunity for vertical job advancement. Salary not competitive in today's market. Currently a general feeling of unrest due to the many recent changes.
