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.
