    I have been working at Pearson

    Pros

    Its the worlds biggest education company, makes you feel that your job has a positive impact. The company takes care of its employees well, has one of the bet 401K plans for employees I know of.

    Cons

    Its a massive organization that has grown over the years through acquisitions. It takes some time before devisions consolidate and you can access new groups within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer career progression paths across Pearson and not just within the group one belongs to. Often groups feel isolated compared to the larger company
