    Current Employee - Data Operations Analyst 

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities. Work from home options. Flexible schedules. Good work/life balance. Autonomy.

    Cons

    Yearly review system isn’t my favorite. It’s not based on merit it’s based on a rating system that doesn’t make much sense to me.

    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Flexible work from home policy many years before Covid pandemic. - Coworkers are generally cordial and helpful.

    Cons

    - Interview process is too easy & often not suitable for the role. - Tools & frameworks changed often. Some frameworks might be written by inexperienced engineers, and are hard to use, maintain or enhance. - Many legacy projects & little new work. So, you might not learn much, and do mostly busy or repetitive work. Projects are going fully or partially offshore which is okay because low quality work should get low wages. - Some people don't do their work, waste time on internet in office, hard to reach at home and some can't do the job. Not sure what management does about this. Others have to pick up the slack sometimes. - Remote working rules can be unfair. Some teams or individuals are allowed to always work from home, but others are required to come to office on some or all days, even when its not needed. This is pre-pandemic.
