    Pros

    As a text book publisher, Pearson has the unique privilege of educating today's youth as well as professionals in many diverse fields. Being comprised of K-12, Higher Education, International and Technology divisions makes this a very dynamic environment for individuals to find opportunities. Pearson also has locations across the company (and the world) that make for interesting travel experiences as well as a great deal of relocation opportunities.

    Cons

    You need to make your own way and define your own growth and professional development goals. There is not much mentoring nor is their a lot of training or cross pollination of knowledge across groups. It takes a very strong career minded person driven to succeed on their own in order to find success here.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more communicative about key initiatives and goals of the organization. People need to feel part of a team and a company they care about.


  2. "Great environment, but lack of advancement opportunities."

    Pros

    The people working for Pearson are typically educated and professional. Since it is a publishing company you find a fair number of women working there. The environment is professional, but less corporate than other big companies. The company tries to offer work/life balance by offering back up child care as well as family leave act.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of advancement opportunities, and many departments would rather have you work a lot of hours instead of hiring the necessary staff. Hard to get appropriate salary raises when needed, so if you start off with a low salary it will be hard to catch up. I have heard of people leaving, just to come back a year later and make $20-$30 K more. As managers are usually super busy and over-worked, performance appraisals and mentoring of employees seem to suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder on promoting from within so that talented and dedicated people don't end up leaving. Have clearer career paths and a feedback system in place. Hire more women in top management roles.
