    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.
