    I have been working at Pearson

    Pros

    The staff is supportive. My boss is very reasonable and intelligent. The company is understanding of different life arrangements. Flexible hours and degrees of employment (full-time, short-time, and part-time) are often (not always) accommodated.

    Cons

    Change is slow and sometimes agonizingly slow. The system can be very bureaucratic. Inter-company communications are not always efficient and effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake things up a little. Give staff more autonomy. Make pay structure more competitive to attract the very best talent.

    Pros

    Low work load, mindless work. Nice gig if you want to do a 9-5. People are nice, work is easy, simple business model, very primitive.

    Cons

    Frustrating for those that want to drive change and process improvement. This is a publishing company that still has not fully embraced the digital age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some fresh blood at the highest level and drive change.
