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

    Pros

    My schedule is ideal. I love working 5am-130pm

    Cons

    Consistently only pay employees half their check. Do not update the sick time you accrue for 3 weeks and you cannot use it until it gets update. Nobody is on the same page with any information-very hard to get a straight answer,

    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff is fun and friendly, lots of support from coworkers. Management is friendly and accepting of everyone.

    Cons

    Managers micromanage to the extreme. Someone is always telling you how to manage your pipeline of students, though they say in meetings that "it's your business" which is undermined on a daily basis. Depending on the manager, leads and students can be taken, and they can hone down and attack you needlessly creating a toxic work environment. Great job for recent grads, really easy to get "too comfortable" here. Ladder is hard to climb. Systems are PLENTIFUL (over 15 different programs) for a company that says it values "simplicity".

    Pros

    Work life balance is the only good thing about this company. Not worth all the other issues

    Cons

    This company is the most toxic place to work. Management picks who they like more and give those people special treatment. If you’re not in the group you are treated poorly. If you are not liked by management there is no way you will be able to get promoted/move up. It’s almost like high school mentality. If you are an enrollment advisor here management will ask you to point a student in the direction of any degree even if the degree won’t help them long term so the company meets their numbers. Very unethical. The turnover rate has become so high because every employee feels the need to leave, yet management refuses to care. Employees express their concerns with mangers and they are ignored. Advisors are given lists of students to call and even if the student states they are not interested right now advisors still have to call them. If advisors do not they get written up. There have been multiple students that have called in stating they are being harassed and will follow up with legal action. If you are even thinking about working here do not. There are plenty of job openings in the field of admissions at other companies. Pearson will promise you a bunch of positive things and nothing will come of it. Stay away.
