Pros

The Expierence and pay are two of teh best reasons for working at Pearson, I have been there for over 7 years, and have not moved. I am a Lead, which really isnt much different from when i started. I would also say another reason it is a good place to work is, it takes a lot to get fired for. People will miss lots of days, do a crappy job, and be rude or evil to management, and are still working there. If you are a slacker, this is the place to work. Just show up, and get paid.

Cons

idiots who manage, and losers who get promoted ahead of the deserving

Advice to Management

learn how to do your job, and stop being jerks
