    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with education professionals is much less stressful than other groups, such as medical/pharmaceutical types. If you do make your sales quota, the compensation is good.

    Cons

    Compensation is only paid out annually, and targets can often be unreasonably high. There is no consideration given to the loss of business to corporate book stores (such as Follett and Barnes & Noble), despite the fact that much of this loss of business is outside the control of the sales rep. The company used to be much more relaxed, imaginative, and creative. However as it has grown larger, it has become more corporate and almost entirely focused on profits over people. Turnover grew tremendously in my last year with the company, with many talented individuals leaving to join a competitor like Cengage or McGraw Hill.
