    Amazing Work Environment

    Pros

    Everyone is incredibly friendly! My team is the best I've ever worked with and other departments are friendly too. My supervisor is so helpful and hands-off. I really enjoy working without someone standing over me. I've learned a ton since I've started and I have no plans on leaving! I'm not currently using Pearson benefits. But I do know they offer good benefits and employee discounts.

    Cons

    Onboarding process can be a little slow. The new folks on my team shadow us, because they don't have access to any of the systems yet. Once they get their logins, they'll be able to work. The new HR system is quite difficult to navigate.

    Poor leadership, loss of team morale

    Sep 14, 2021 - Family Enrollment Counselor 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Good benefits and perks such as one free non fiction book a month

    Cons

    Unorganized customer support structure, no updated resources. Leadership was not able to provide clear direction. Over half of my team left before busy season or took short term disability. This put a huge strain the remaining team and caused mass burnout. In the que for 8 hours a day does not allow for any follow up.
