    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunity to move around both in businesses and around the world.

    Cons

    Trying to move their employees to "A" players but going about it all wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't penalize the outstanding employees when you can't deal effectively with the ineffective employees. The good ones are leaving - there is no going up so they have to go out.

    get the politicians out (aka, talkers that don't execute)
