Underpaid, overworked and unappreciated

Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Rancho Cordova, CA

I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFun to solve problems and troubleshoot the software.

ConsDo not promote internally. Support is managed poorly. Customers are often verbally abusive and unreasonably demanding.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower support and promote technical ability instead of lip service just to keep customers happy despite their abuse

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