I worked at Pearson full-time

Pros

Short work week and plenty of cyber commute options. When things get crazy everyone works together to get the job out the door with the minimum amount of defects.

Cons

management doesn't always understand what we do. on several occasions releases were forced to go out before they were ready, and the resulting issues resulted in production outages and lost revenue

Advice to Management

Enough with the reorgs. Let's get some stability in LTG, invest in hardware so we an get our work done correctly.

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

    Pros

    Company recently purchased by Pearson Education so there is potential for future growth opportunities

    Cons

    Becoming a low tech call center environment in a growing high tech education delivery model

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries for student facing employees since they are not eligible for bonuses or eliminate bonuses across the company. The department that is responsible for 80% of revenue is the lowest paid in the company

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

    Pros

    Had a great time working there, company commited to diversity very flexible in terms of hours of work and very nice and supportive upper management.

    Cons

    Sometimes seems you are working for a public division. Process become slow as people have more flexibility to work according to their convenience. In terms of career opportunities they seem to have a great internship program but after you are gone out of company human resource does not keep any track of former interns or even mak much effort in retaining employees. Human Resource department is very desintegrated and does not work well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving human resources effort and centralizing activities instead of keeping each office working independently.
