Pros

Overall it was a very challenging job. Lots of information to take in in a short amount of time to learn the ropes.

Cons

Felt that the salary was not in keeping with the job that was expected. Long hours, lack of support from management

Advice to Management

Increase salaries so there is an incentive to keep working for Pearson. An employee's experience with Pearson is very valuable and when someone leaves, that experience walks out the door and the learning curve starts all over again.

    Pros

    Pearson does a good job of recognizing talent and promoting from within. Having a degree in English or publishing experience prior to coming is good, but a lack thereof does not hinder growth. On the job and formal training is well organized. The people at Pearson are incredibly talented and hard working.

    Cons

    It is a challenge to balance work/life when working at a high-stress type of job. Pearson is no exception to this--a cyclical industry like college publishing requires travel and long hours during peak season, and what used to be the "off" season does not exist anymore. Still there are perks to make up for it, and I would highly recommend it as a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at the day-to-day and get to really know the middle and upper managers without judgment. Obviously the industry has changed significantly since the 80s/90s when many sr leaders started at Pearson, they clearly know that. What might not be as obvious is how employees, customers and their approaches to day to day tasks have changed as well.

    Pros

    It is a good temporary job. The environment is nice. The people are friendly. There isn't much stress, but the work is kind of mind numbing.

    Cons

    The work is very repetitive. There is little to no opportunity to advance. The work is only seasonal and your glad when it ends.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management does a fairly good job. They provide a nice work environment and there isn't much they could do to address the temporary nature of the work which makes this a dead end job.
