I worked at Pearson part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexibility to work from home on seasonal projects.

Cons

Pay was average for role that I worked in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My experience with management was reasonable. In my role, I felt as if there was a high level of expectation to meet company standards while also maintaining respect for each employees individual opinion and contribution.

    I have been working at Pearson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, we had some free lunches. Managers are nice, they are not pushing you, and sharing a lot of experiences and knowledge with you.

    Cons

    Did not have chances to meet up with other managers.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, both vacation and medical.

    Cons

    In Upper Saddle River, people who have been there 20+ years, who were still very hard working and gave everything to Pearson, were laid off. John Fallon said, " A company is only as good as its people"....which does not say much for the company. This after sending repeated emails saying the company needed to move forward, and that meant a lot of talented people were going to lose their jobs! People still there, are waiting for the axe to fall. Not at all a good atmosphere to work in. And, people there are so fearful of losing their jobs that there is no more camaraderie. No sharing of information, no moving ahead together. It's one for all and all for one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your faithful and hard-working employees to go digital instead of having no regard for them and laying them off.
