Pros

Great flexibility, offers work from home. Overall good environment to work.

Cons

The opportunities are limited for employee to grow, promotions are given based on appearances under the worthless buzz word 'potential'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many random organization changes are confusing to employees. Senior management horribly lacks the depth of understanding the core business process and identifying employee's potential for putting right people in place. Poorly designed execution strategy when it comes to leading organization to a specific direction. i.e. they don't understand the problem (or ignore it) until they fall on the nose.

    Pros

    pearson's benefits are good and they are good at acknowledging their employees and providing a very pro family work environment.

    Cons

    the company is huge and one tends to get lost in the shuffle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication is not good between the different departments and the company would likely benefit from sharing ideas between the different divisions.
