    I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work with smart and interesting people to improve educational products and services.

    Cons

    Multiple waves of layoffs over the past few years has led to most remaining employees being overstretched. With the stress of extra work and close colleagues leaving, the morale in the office is low.

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The ability to work with educators to facilitate learning and improve course outcomes.

    Cons

    New managers coming from other industries that don't seem to understand the customer, the market, or the outside changes that have occurred over the years, and don't seem interested in any information that would help facilitate change. Tasks and goals seem to change on a regular basis, and there seems to be little understanding as to why and no clear direction on how to accomplish anything because there are barriers to being able to do the work. Constant reorgs and layoffs over the last 7 years with thousands regularly losing jobs. Low morale.
