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.

    Pros

    - Many talented and committed colleagues

    Cons

    - IT development teams and operations tend to work long hours.
    - Ongoing reorganization causes job insecurity.

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

    Pros

    *Passionate about the company's focused mission of spreading global education.
    *By far the most driven, intelligent, and fun colleagues I've had the pleasure to work with in my career.
    *Ideal for "Type A" individuals who are willing to work hard to make a difference with their customers.
    *Continued investment in technology and development.
    *Senior Leadership truly listens and cares about feedback from the field.
    *The company has a solid long-term vision for the transition the Higher Ed industry is experiencing.
    *Promotions and additional incentives are merit-based; work hard and you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    *Not a 9-to-5 job...but that's always a con. When you're passionate about what you do, you don't mind putting in extra time!

    Advice to Management

    *Continue to focus on removing obstacles and providing resources for your field staff to be successful
