Pros

* Great CEO!
* Good pay
* Good work/life balance

Cons

Paper Testing is on its way out, so if you join to support the legacy paper testing process, you'll eventually find yourself looking again. Things were good prior to the Harcourt acquisition, but now incompetence is abound. Pearson absorbed their "talent" pool. They brought their baggage in a big way.
* The other plant in Iowa dictates everything
* Incompetence is abound as they don't fire anyone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ditch the incompetent managers!

    It's been challenging (and rewarding at times) in terms of the scope of the project I'm working on

    Great people, mostly cooperative in assisting you when required.

    Cons

    Insufficient human resources to fulfil most of the work required in the group.

    Pros

    great coworkers! close relationships with other assistants, lots of people who care about learning

    Cons

    no training, no advancement unless you go into sales, more work than can be done in 35 hours/week, more administrative work than editorial, little creativity, vague responsibilities, understaffed, low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was a more collaborative effort across Higher Ed groups. You have a bunch of assistants here that just graduated from college--use them for feedback!
