Administrative Support (Former Employee), austin, txJuly 30, 2015
Pros: Good benifit and good package.
Cons: Would of like to of retired from Pearson.
Due to the fact that Pearson lost the contract with TEA we no longer have our employment. We lost the 2nd home for many of us because that we spent more hour with our co-workers that we did with our families and this was a very sad experience for many of us.

Too much middle management
Account Executive (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 27, 2015
Company always focused on quarterly returns. No vision for the future when it comes to program development.
"Acquire and conquer" is the name of the game for these folks.

Opportunities for growth
Efficacy Results Manager (Current Employee), Boston, MAJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Opportunities to grow and learn new things
Cons: A lot of change and transitions going on in the company can cause some confusion
I find the people at Pearson to be very supportive overall, including the various managers that I have had. They are passionate about education and care about the customers. I have been lucky to have had a lot of growth opportunities at Pearson. There is a lot of change in the organization mostly due to the transition from a print business to digital. A positive attitude and willingness to learn is a must.

Great start to a career in education
Associate Literacy Editor (Former Employee), Glenview, ILJuly 14, 2015
Having graduated from another state (with an out-of-state teaching license) it was difficult at first to find jobs. Pearson gave me chance to work on curriculum for diverse learners and having that on my resume helped me land my first teaching job. I generally worked alone creating and editing curriculum at my desk, but my supervisor was extremely intelligent and was a joy to work for.

I enjoyed working with Pearson and would like to work there again. It was very nice to be able to work from my home computer.
Scorer-Training-Home Job (Former Employee), Iowa City, IAJuly 10, 2015
Pros: Working from home without any supervisors.
I worked from my home. A typical day began with training for a scoring position training from 4 to 8 hours. I trained in two separate intervals and each time I did not qualify to become a scorer because of the overrall score I obtained.

Hard work but plenty of benefits and perks
Line Leader for Loose Pick (Former Employee), Lebanon, Indiana 46052June 24, 2015
Pros: each day was a little different, there was diversity in people and jobs.
Cons: The jobs were physically stressing and loud atmosphere.
Each day was a little different. There was diversity in departments, people and jobs performed. Patience and understanding for all different situations and occasions. Management had an open door policy which I liked and all management and floor personnel talked each day regarding conflicts, issues and questions which would arise.People were completely trained before being let go on their own. Shift co-workers worked well as a team and shared the load to accomplish all tasks efficiently and quickly. The hardest part of the job was productivity goals with such a understaffed facility and jobs were physically stressing with loud, deafening atmosphere. The most enjoyable part of the job of course was the perks the company provided. Things like the good mannered competition between peers and management and the weight room, Paid time off and releasing people early with pay on the days before holidays and special occasions for voluntary community services.

The job can suck and ruin your personal life
Sales Representative (Former Employee), MichiganJune 22, 2015
Pros: Very fulfilling and interesting work
Cons: Loss of personal life.
I found the job to be very positive and fulfilling. Walking around college campuses and talking to very intelligent instructors and professors about what they are teaching is great. The downside is the culture of being a sales rep. You are expected to work long hours, nights and weekends, whatever it takes to get the job done. Most of the people you work with are remote and can be difficult to reach and sometime they take a long time to respond. There is a chance for promotion, but a majority of the jobs are in the home office. Over the past few years the stress of the job has increased significantly. You can make good money with the company, the benefits are average, the car is a good perk, but they keep moving to cheaper models.

Miserable work environment with constant upheaval
Associate Business Manager (Current Employee), Old Tappan, NJJune 22, 2015
There are so many systems and so much reorganization that it boggles the mind. When I first started the bonuses were good and the culture was positive. That has all changed now.
