I worked at Pearson part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexibility to work from home on seasonal projects.

Cons

Pay was average for role that I worked in.

Advice to Management

My experience with management was reasonable. In my role, I felt as if there was a high level of expectation to meet company standards while also maintaining respect for each employees individual opinion and contribution.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, both vacation and medical.

    Cons

    In Upper Saddle River, people who have been there 20+ years, who were still very hard working and gave everything to Pearson, were laid off. John Fallon said, " A company is only as good as its people"....which does not say much for the company. This after sending repeated emails saying the company needed to move forward, and that meant a lot of talented people were going to lose their jobs! People still there, are waiting for the axe to fall. Not at all a good atmosphere to work in. And, people there are so fearful of losing their jobs that there is no more camaraderie. No sharing of information, no moving ahead together. It's one for all and all for one.

    Advice to Management

    Train your faithful and hard-working employees to go digital instead of having no regard for them and laying them off.

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ~Pearson offers the flexibility to work from home once you have a year of experience with the company. The benefits are really good, as far as health insurance and retirement plans. ~There are opportunities to travel, sometimes to interesting places, on company business.

    Cons

    ~There are often long hours without any extra compensation. If you're on salary, it doesn't matter how many hours you have to work to make the deadline, that's what is expected. ~There have been a few times when certain projects have had to have people work on the weekends and have people from other projects also work on the weekend to help meet the deadline.
    ~Management isn't always supportive when presented with issues that direct reports have no power to influence, such as lack of resources to complete an assignment.
    ~Evaluation process has changed every year for the last 3 years, making meeting criteria for promotions difficult.
    ~Promotions, raises and bonuses aren't actually based on evaluations

    Advice to Management

    ~Improve communication
    ~Consider some kind of compensation for employees who are on salary but continuously must work over-time
    ~Stop changing evaluation process every year
