Current Employee - Oracle Database Administrator in New York, NY

I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Easy, fair, reasonable, good working environment. With divisions all over the world, the company has certain scale to dominate in text book publishing area.

Cons

Lack of top talent. Management always pushes for cost cutting. Although called itself as a technology company, a lot of work related to technology is outsourced. Emphasize too much on organization structures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too much reorganization would hurt the company.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've found my team at Pearson to be open to new ways of working. My experience is highly valued, despite it NOT being directly tied to my job description. I've been given opportunities to stretch my role in various areas and given the freedom to fail without fear of retribution.

    Cons

    A good bit of transition is underway for the company. That makes some employees nervous. The publishing industry is changing and adapting to new technology. Some teams will become obsolete. There can be some morale problems as people get nervous about the future. Management has done a satisfactory job of communicating about the changes. Could do better.
