Pros

The overall attitude of Pearson and its employees is fairly easy-going and promotes a sense of friendliness. The benefits package is solid. Management is generally understanding and willing to work with employees regarding both professional needs and allowing for personal needs when necessary.

Cons

There is a lack of upward mobility. This seems to be across the board. A steady stream of changes have kept the business from being able to move forward on a lot of internal projects. Many groups are left without any sense of real structure for years at a time. Its expected that everyone be satisfied with maintaining the status quo amongs the non-management employees.

Advice to Management

You have a lot of smart employees with a solid understanding of their part of the business. It would benefit the company to take better advantage of that.

    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.
