    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible time, colleagues are fun to work with

    Cons

    The management has no clue on how to handle the business. Their constant travelling, implementing consistent process changes that lead to nothing, and no attention to content or content management has led to a swift decline of author-publisher relationships and general product quality. While staff at middle management and junior staff works consistently to meet goals and make sure that authors are being heard, non-empowerment at this level leads to constant bottlenecks, making all products - digital and print LATE! We keep expecting authors to submit manuscripts on time when we barely pay heed to their ideas or opinions on the market.

    Let us not even delve into the subject of salaries or motivation, because these things are purely fictitious at Pearson Education. While most work gets done just because the middle management is very mindful of their work ethic, there is hardly ANY salary increase on an annual basis. Promotions and opportunities are meant for people are who close to their managers or higher management and everyone else who is more talented and hard working is just biding time till they find better jobs that they truly deserve.
