    Current Employee - Product Manager in Boston, MA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, availability of interesting projects, exposure to senior management, decent benefits, clear company vision, plenty of opportunities to transfer jobs internally.

    Cons

    Very political environment, limited opportunities for career advancement unless you leave the company or transfer jobs internally, salary is below market for the majority of technology positions.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to work with employees on career goals regularly instead of yearly. This will improve employee morale and retention.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - great work/life balance
    - able to work from home
    - some professional growth opportunities
    - great benefits

    Cons

    - not a very enthusiastic environment/culture
    - leadership not connected or knowledgeable of products across the company.
    - constantly "re-inventing" the wheel every time there is a re-organization
    - at least one major re-org a year

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that the leadership teams across Pearson should interact with each other to take an inventory of the resources that exist and/or available so that the company can strive towards being efficient.
