I have been working at Pearson full-time (Less than a year)
The atmosphere, the ambiance, the way we care about customers. I also enjoy the facilities and support we receive in our daily work-life.
There are a lot of office politics, and a lot of empire-building. Also, there are a lot of people who will happily cover errors on their part, while happily high-lighting others' mistakes as loudly as possible in an attempt to use smoke-and-mirrors to distract from their own mistakes. There is also of attempts to persecute/prosecute people based on what MIGHT have happened, instead of treating incidents as lessons-learned and giving a further opportunity to carry on.
Advice to Management
Real boats rock. If there is not motion and churn - people are either hiding something, or doing nothing. If someone complains x, y, and z have not been done - carry out actions based on the OUTCOMES instead of worrying about how loud the shouting is... At the end of the day: our jobs - overall, day-to-day - involve correcting problems, and helping learner outcomes. If a problem comes up, we're being paid to correct them. If someone doesn't like the fact that an error in action or judgement inconveniences them: tough. That's why we get paid. If someone doesn't like dealing with correcting problems - they should change jobs. I feel this quite strongly. Again - real boats rock. The only ones which don't are cased in concrete and are not real at all.
