Approves of CEO

I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Commitment to high quality digital educational materials. Flexible hours. Well set-up for working from home. Very smart coworkers. Friendly. Supportive.

Cons

Advancement path is not always clear. Space is limited, and changing to more open space with minimum amount of privacy. Company is rapidly changing to digital: a pro because it is the future of education and publishing, a con if change makes you nervous.

Advice to Management

Need clear advancement paths for digital developers. Could use some change management procedures.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Good time off, when you can take it

    Cons

    Completely lacking leadership and mentors
    Communication is chaotic
    No defined roles for some groups and positions
    Salary is weak, bonuses are pitiful - less that cost of living
    unsure of future
    Reorganizations every 3 mos

    Advice to Management

    Decide what to be and go be it. Stop changing for the sake of investors. Change is good when you have direction. Change is bad when you're grasping at straws and have no plan.

    Reward your good workers! No, a reward is not the ability to keep your job.
