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

Pros

Good pay and benefits. I was able to have a flexible work schedule and my managers always encouraged my growth.

Cons

At times the hiring process was based more on who you know, rather than competencies and experience. The same things come out in the employee surveys each time.
