    Flexibility to work from home on seasonal projects.

    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 worked at Pearson full-time (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.
