It used to be a great place to work, but the decision-making is too centralized now.

I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The company is fairly generous in its 401K matching plan and vacation benefits. The health insurance is still very good but should be less of a factor to consider now that the ACA is in place. Telework is an option in certain departments in Austin but not in others.

Cons

There are limited opportunities to advance and grow in certain departments, especially now that the company is struggling financially. The real wage of many workers has been shrinking for the past four years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time listening to the concerns of rank-and-file workers--many of them are actually pretty sharp.

    There have been some changes in our leadership, so it has been a transitional time.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Good work-life balance
    - Great colleagues
    - Educating the world is a good goal to have as you wake up in the morning

    Cons

    - Lack of understanding of what digital really means by higher executives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone smart in their 20s to run your product strategy. and then actually take action and make things happen. the edtech startup market around us is changing fast and right now we're not keeping up with it
