    I worked at Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working to build quality educational tools is challenging and extremely satisfying.

    Cons

    This is now a seriously messed up company. Upper management is out of touch with customers and employees. Many experienced employees who were able to navigate beautifully on their own and guide others have been let go. New employees contribute, but lack the experience to see work through and bring it to full dimension.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Get involved. Get out of your place of comfort and dictation and get into the trenches. Value creativity. Allow your most creative employees to innovate. Listen to employees working at all levels of the business regularly. Look very closely at how employees and workflows integrate with new ideas and technologies as this is what allows building a competitive edge for quality products.
