Pros
  • Usually a great work-life balance if you're in Production or Media (in 71 reviews)

  • Work from home seems pervasive throughout the company (in 36 reviews)

Cons
  • It's as if upper management has never been in sales (in 38 reviews)

  • Nobody leaves (which is probably a "pro" for the company) so there's not much room for advancement (in 15 reviews)

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This has been a good company to work for, where you could get opportunities. It is transforming now into more of a cohesive company, with a focus on the learner. You can tell that the transformation is working, as more and more there are services and groups to tap into to move things forward, or get training to advance your skillset.

    Cons

    This company is transforming, expect a bit of a rocky experience for a while.
