Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Wonderful people who enjoy working with cutting-edge technology and embrace the mission of improving lives through education. Culture is people-focused - hard working with authentic style and life-balance. No-walls management style (not 'open door' because in Denver their are no private offices at all). Agile best practices. Terrific healthcare plan and other benefits.

Cons

Right now, early 2014, so much re-direction at the top there it is difficult to have focus.

Advice to Management

Finalize restructure and be even more transparent with communication. CEO John Fallon is transparent and really great at communications, not all levels below him are as open. This used to not be the case.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    New challenges daily keep the work environment eventful.

    Cons

    Strong disconnect between upper management and customers/sales force realities. Long hours. Denied vacations. Lack of follow up and ownership of mistakes from colleagues to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Pearson lacks current leadership and connection with employees. Pearson "leaders" have no idea how company culture has dwindled over the last couple years and how poorly sales reps are treated.
