I worked at Pearson full-time

Pros

I loved the people I dealt with in the school districts. There were wonderful people who stood by me when I needed help finding a new position after Pearson closed out office.

Cons

I worked for Pearson for years. I thought I would retire from there. I had a good history, good connections, and did my job very well. Then they decided it was no longer profitable to hire Americans, and they could make more money outsourcing the work to India. They closed the office I worked at, and layed us all off. It was devastating, at my age, and in the 2012 economy. I'm very grateful to have found a wonderful job with another company.

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

    Pros

    Started out as a very good Company to work for. Ok pay, nice benefit package as far as vacation time, etc.

    Cons

    When Customer Service was in Columbus, Ohio I felt sorry for the people there losing there jobs as they opened Customer Service in Lebanon, Indiana and those people lost their jobs. Now, the folks in Lebanon, Indiana are beginning to lose their jobs. They don't keep the "little people" informed of the bigger picture only Upper Management is really aware. Just like this deal with Pearson Education and IBM. I bet there were very few CSR's aware of everything that was starting to happen in 2002 with them.

    Advice to Management

    Karma....what goes around comes around. All you big wig, money grubbing Upper Management People will get yours in due time too.
