Wonderful mission, lots of change to redirect company to be technology-driven and global.

Manager (Current Employee) Denver, CO

ProsWonderful people who enjoy working with cutting-edge technology and embrace the mission of improving lives through education. Culture is people-focused - hard working with authentic style and life-balance. No-walls management style (not 'open door' because in Denver their are no private offices at all). Agile best practices. Terrific healthcare plan and other benefits.

ConsRight now, early 2014, so much re-direction at the top there it is difficult to have focus.

Advice to Senior ManagementFinalize restructure and be even more transparent with communication. CEO John Fallon is transparent and really great at communications, not all levels below him are as open. This used to not be the case.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Pros: Pearson has lots of very bright, very motivated people. There's lots of opportunity to work… Cons: Crazy politics. Lots of land-grabbing, and in the technology space it's not clear that management knows who's… Advice to Senior Management: Bite the bullet - become a technology company. Stop… More
