Support from management

Great support from direct management. Not so great higher up

Teamwork

Great co-workers on my direct team

Career Development

No clear career paths

Work-Life Balance

Was not overworked. Benefit of working for London-based company

Company Image

Many people still see Pearson as textbook company that gouges students.

Job Security

Many rounds of layoffs. Still happening. Everyone is waiting for the other shoe to drop

Suggestions for improvement

  • Promoting from within is awesome. However, pulling marketing directors from sales with no direct experience was difficult for my department.

What I like about the company

I think that there is room to grow and to learn and a willingness to try new things.

What I dislike about the company

When I worked there, it seems that director level and above were paid handsomely, at the expense of manager level and below where salaries were below market.
