    I have been working at Pearson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pearson is full of talented people who are friendly, direct, and always pushing for results. Pearson's product line is outstanding and a leader in the industry. I love working for a company that has a positive impact on the world we live in.

    Cons

    I hear some people say, "Well that's the way we've always done it" or they are hesitant to change. There are only a few of these people but not having an open mind, will prevent the company from growing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing. There are checks and balances with this company that keep it and the employees in line, focused on results and driving the business.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, high level of autonomy in position, good company values. This is a great place for working mothers and fathers, as flex time can be arranged, management is understanding of the fact that unexpected things come up involving family.

    Cons

    Communication between senior management and reps is almost non-existent. Sales numbers are handled by one person and not double checked. We receive our sales performance numbers in March and only have 24 hours to dispute errors, not enough time for a thorough review of the information, especially when some reps handled more than 200 accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Communication about major and minor changes as they're happening cuts down on confusion.
