    Pros

    In a way, you make the experience what you want, if you're a go-getter and aggressive and fit in. Sometimes management is very human, but now when it comes to work.

    Cons

    If you just do a great job alone, you'll probably be taken advantage of and burn out. The management is out of touch with what goes on every day and the resources needed to accomplish a goal. The schedules are made very unrealistic then slowed down tremendously through bureaucracy, inefficiency, and old-fashioned methods. Downsizing when successful and trying to squeeze every last drop of blood out of hardworking employees who care while the rest skate by is bad. The pay is terrible, nobody can define processes or can make decisions, and the work is uncreative and unrewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Stop squeezing schedules and cutting budgets when a previous formula was very successful. Stop recommending more meetings and more people to look at an easily solvable problem. Take the time to get to know the people who do the actual work and what they go through. Most importantly, take the time to train people you're trying to promote to more success and responsibility instead of throwing them to the sharks and letting them burn out.

    The people are very nice to work with and are always there to help you. This is the first job I like. The people who work here make Pearson what they are today!

    Cons

    The pay is fairly low and it takes many months to get a promotion there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.
