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
