    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 worked at Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits but little chance of advancement in Production/Design.

    Cons

    They're flattening many departments eliminating any chance of promotion and putting middle managers on the unemployment line.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look of who you are putting out of work: Some of your most loyal and hard working employees. And you're not even sure how many people you will need in your Integrated Workflow. Does this make sense until it's implemented?
