Pros

It is a good temporary job. The environment is nice. The people are friendly. There isn't much stress, but the work is kind of mind numbing.

Cons

The work is very repetitive. There is little to no opportunity to advance. The work is only seasonal and your glad when it ends.

Advice to Management

I think the management does a fairly good job. They provide a nice work environment and there isn't much they could do to address the temporary nature of the work which makes this a dead end job.

    Pros

    Pearson Education has a lot of fun products to design for. There is a broad spectrum of creativity. There are offices in multiple locations which lets you build relationships all over the U.S. Pearson offers excellent benefits and are very flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Pearson Curriculum has not offered designers an ability to stay up on their design skill levels. There used to be a lot of training available which they no longer offer. They also do not handle issues within the company. The issues are not dealt with which overall affects moral.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employers. If there are rumors or issues that need to be handled they should act upon them right away. Pearson is a huge company, treat employees as people, not just a number. Marjorie sets a great example on how employees should be treated, that attitude needs to trickle down in management to the employees.

    Pros

    Interesting and intelligent coworkers.
    A few (very few) managers have a decent streak .
    Did I already say that the coworkers are intelligent and interesting people to work with?

    Cons

    Temper tantrum management style of most managers.
    All levels hide work-related info from employees in the level below. Hording info in order to get and keep power is a desperate act of an incompetent, and it hurts the company, not just the employees.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT allow managers to treat the employees below them in the shoddy, abusive way that they currently treat them. CEASE the hiring and promoting of management's friends and especially relatives who always seem to reach levels of power far beyond their levels of expertise. RECOGNIZE that many, many people first came to Pearson because they believed in the value of what they were hired to do, but they hate having to work in such an abusive environment. I'm giving Dame Scardino a very low score because the buck stops with her for allowing this company to become a sweat shop.
