    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

    Pearson is a great organization to work for. Management is outstanding, exec leadership are involved and aware of goings-on and interact with front-line employees frequently. There are several visionary folks throughout the organization and while they are loosely organized (see: Yammer), they are able to help shape and shift the organization. I would heartiliy recommend Pearson!

    Cons

    There are challenges, as there are in any large organization, particularly around innovation and challenging the status quo. It's not quite the monolith that IBM or other Blue Chip organizations are, but there are times that change comes slowly (if at all). Internal shared services are less than ideal. The green initiatives have not yet reached HR/payroll services and certainly not accounts payable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find your visionaries, link them better, listen to them more closely. Pay attention to your customers, find a way to sift out some of the chaff (it does still exist).
