    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful colleagues, ample opportunities to take on more responsibilities within one's position.

    Cons

    Contract positions have a two year maximum; Pearson is outsourcing more and more.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management does a wonderful job. However, hiring vendors and contract employees instead of staff vastly drops project quality.

    Pros

    PLS is part of Pearson Education, a company well respected world wide. Great benefits and a great location in Back Bay. For the most part, great peers.

    Cons

    PLS management is disappointing and the HR department is a joke. Difficult to move up within the company. Pace of work is inconsistent--summer is extremely busy with slower times coming in the fall and winter.
