I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great training: Professional Selling Skills
Salaries are competitive, bonus uncapped
Light work load during the summer

Cons

Extremely heavy work load during the selling season
Very high turnover rate. In one sales meeting product session, over 50% of the reps in the room were brand new
Very clique-ish, felt a bit like 7th grade
Management can be downright catty

    I worked at Pearson as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It looks good on the resume.

    Cons

    So many to list.... As an HR Intern I was able to see all the crap they get away with. They dont do criminal background checks on their warehouse workers, their application system is non existent. All paper applications, no technology in those offices at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together!!
