I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 5 years)
They let you work autonomously - they do not micro manage you. There are lots of opportunities for advancement and movement.
They are executively run very poorly. They are reporting losses every year. The executive management has been in place for over 4 yrs of losses.
Advice to Management
The CEO needs to be replaced and high level executive management needs to be changed. In order to get change you need to make change. In order to have a different outcome you need to make different decisions.
I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson.
I know someone who works here and met with her and her co-worker to discuss the company in general. She helped me get in touch with the manager for the department I had applied to online. I had a phone interview and I think it went well.
The man I spoke with asked the typical interview questions for an entry-level job and he was easy to talk to. We even had a nice conversation about something unrelated to the job. I was asked if I would like to come in the next week to discuss further. Despite the reviews I've seen on Glassdoor, I said yes as I would love to work for a publishing company like Pearson. Plus I like the higher education industry. I was told I'd receive details via email on the weekend (my interview was mid-week).
I have yet to hear back, despite thanking the interviewer and following up twice. I understand not receiving a response for every application sent out, but since I spoke to someone directly and I was under the impression I had an in-person interview scheduled, I'm extremely disappointed I received no response, regardless of the outcome. So, I guess no offer.
