Nice working experience with Pearson

Report answer

Flexible hours, but that also means the company has flexibility with your hours. Usually 50+ hours/week. In IT, you always have to call or go to the office in the evenings and weekends to work with overseas counterparts or just local. Because IT work is always off hours on top of your regular day, you are expected to work all of the overtime without pay. One comp day does not pay the bills or make up lost time with the family.

Fine, although often more than the standard work week as fewer and fewer people have to do more and more.

Grueling during the spring and summer. We were instructed that we shouldn't make any vacation plans during the spring or summer without at least a month's notice.

Great. Hours are very flexible but more based on individual management.

Report answer

Great, no problems with schedule. Weekends worked are decided late on Thursday so if you have plans you'll have an issue . Sometimes project managers don't have any contingency plans if something goes wrong.on their project which then requires Supervisors and associates to work evenings, Saturdays & Sundays

Report answer

Flexible to a degree, but it's a hard work life balance. Expect to be on-call during key times, which can be hard to balance at times.
