Pros

If the publishing industry is where you want to have a career, the only place to do that is at Pearson. This time of massive change in the indutsry can be very stressful. Almost all of Pearson's competitors are financially in horrible places. Pearson protects there on without massive layoffs. Your job may change but you will still have one! Training is well done and management is supportive without micromanaging which is important! There are huge opportunities for advancement, great compensation and benefits.

Cons

The world's leading learning company is massive. It may seem overwhelming at first but it gets easier with time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people on the ground! We are the closest to the customers and possess the most insight.

    Pros

    Culture is very relaxed, almost too relaxed for my taste really. Great benefits and 401k. Very flexible environment.

    Cons

    Not enough emphasis on career advancement/development. At least in my profession. My manager has changed a few times over the years, which is ok, but they should still be able to reward those who work hard and do good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate your employees by making them feel as if their work is important. The best way to keep someone engaged is to make them feel appreciated.
