    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Intelligent, decent people. Treated its employees well and with respect. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Could be stressful and (very often) political. In the end, the company was *constantly* reorganizing. This made any kind of advancement almost impossible. Most people did what they did for years and only moved laterally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand the company is reorganizing, but I would like to point out that driving away good knowledgeable people costs you in productivity (and dollars) as you just have to go out and re-hire and train someone else (and then risk them not working out anyway) I feel like good people who were already employed and happy at the company were overlooked or sidelined by new management.
