I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good intelligent people. Great talent in non management positions. Cafeteria in building with good food. Nice building appearance. Flexibility to work from home.

Cons

Always restructuring, poor communication across departments,teams. No room for advancement. too much drama and office politics on top of stress. Air condition does not work properly. Leadership out of state. Training given by web ex with inexperienced trainers. If not famiar with processes will drown. Favoritism among management.

Advice to Management

Keep good talent. Get rid of layers of leadership. Invest in loyal talented employees. Always learning slogan apply it to employees. Great company to grow with but not only with years of service but on a personal level. Too many chiefs and too little indians

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

    Pros

    Pearson is very forward looking. A leader in their industry in many aspects, they "downsized" me along with others due to the digital inroads our society is making.

    Cons

    There are several divisions and it seems to me there is a lot of duplication or little synergy taking place.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate communications and systems better between divisions

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture and Lifestyle are good, with a positive goal for product development. Generally can be proud of what you are working on and it's impact on society.

    Cons

    Career advancement is limited. Pay hasn't kept pace with inflation even with positive reviews, and someone hired off the street will almost always be given more pay for the same job than someone hired internally. Makes it hard to justify not looking outside the company after a while.
