    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

    I have been working at Pearson

    Pros

    - great work/life balance
    - able to work from home
    - some professional growth opportunities
    - great benefits

    Cons

    - not a very enthusiastic environment/culture
    - leadership not connected or knowledgeable of products across the company.
    - constantly "re-inventing" the wheel every time there is a re-organization
    - at least one major re-org a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that the leadership teams across Pearson should interact with each other to take an inventory of the resources that exist and/or available so that the company can strive towards being efficient.
