    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent Pay. Strong Benefits. Strong products in the marketplace.

    Cons

    In major transition mode right now. Restructuring has let many good people go. It will take a couple of years for the company to sort out its new organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent in terms of ongoing organizational changes. Uncertainty caused many people to underperform due to insecurity and lack on knowledge on what's coming next.
