Pros

Pearson offers great benefits
The work itself is very interesting; very talented colleagues
Global business offers valuable experience

Cons

Company has grown way too fast
Sr. management is totally out of touch with middle management and line level employees
Sr. mgmt focused entirely on making large end-of-year bonuses and in the process and refuse to hire the staff necessary to support the growing business. Employees are working in a sweat-shop environment, with many putting in 12-14 hours days. Qualify has dropped dramatically as staff is pushed to do far more than humanly possible. Morale is rock-bottom.
Very much a "good old boys club"

Advice to Management

They won't listen - so why bother.

    Pros

    This publishing house offers great benefits, and it has a big share in the K-12 market in the biggest states.

    Cons

    It's very bureaucratic, thus, too hard to navigate and get things done. It's too political, and as a result, it's a lot about personality rather than performance.

    Advice to Management

    Device a plan and stick to it: avoid shifting gears all the time. If you care about the 'people', then do not rely on outsourcing, and hire everyone back!
