Just your typical, large publishing corporation: low(ish) salaries and looks-good-on-paper benefits

I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-- The people I've worked with have made this place tolerable. When I think about the company as a whole, I can't wait to get out. But when I think about my managers/colleagues, I'm OK with staying.
-- Gym subsidy isn't bad. You pay maybe $30/month for an otherwise-$60 (plus sign-up fees) gym membership.
-- The location of the Boston offices can't be beat. Back Bay/Copley Square has added value to the job.

Cons

-- Tuition reimbursement is a farce. The 100% reimbursement promise might sound generous, but the classes you take have to directly correlate to your current position, so forget about bettering yourself on the company dime.
-- The company is on a kick of turning all its office spaces into open layout. Sure, it encourages collaboration, but not every department requires collaboration.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off.

    Cons

    Too many "cons" for a 20 word min. Pearson is currently out-sourcing most customer service jobs - the future of existing departments is uncertain. Additionally, there is no room for growth and transferring out is nearly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are looking to cut costs, stop hiring new executives. A single executive salary (with bonus) could save the job of several Customer Service employees.
