I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun to solve problems and troubleshoot the software.

    Cons

    Do not promote internally. Support is managed poorly. Customers are often verbally abusive and unreasonably demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Empower support and promote technical ability instead of lip service just to keep customers happy despite their abuse

    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.
