Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNFebruary 22, 2017
The work itself can be repetitive, but the people you work with are fun loving, energetic, and helpful. Management was fair, and was eager to find ways to help you, not punish you. Management also was truthful and honest.
Pros
Professional
Cons

President (Former Employee) –  High Point, NCFebruary 13, 2017
Wonderful company. Great people. The employees made a quality product which was well received in the marketplace. The company had a loyal following in the designer community. The company also had a great sales force. The company was well managed and well organized. All this started to go down hill when Furniture Brands bought the company.
Pros
Great people at the company
Cons
Corporate (Furniture Brands) ran it into the ground

Going through difficult transition and not sure management is making the right choices
Solutions Architect -Oracle DRM (Current Employee) –  New JerseyFebruary 12, 2017
Pearson has many good qualities: depending on the division, work/life balance is great, good managers allow employees to manage themselves and many talented/smart people. However, the company is going through a much needed, multi-year restructuring but it's not clear that the path our executives have taken is the right one. Moral is low and the executive team does not seem capable of providing inspiration to it's employees.
Pros
flexible, good work/life balance, great colleagues, trying new technologies
Cons
slow to adapt to change, beurocratic, wants to be innovative but is not nimble

Prefer not to answer as I don't have anything negative to say. I am not sure why you are making this a mandatory answer. In the future, this should not be on the questions or you should give an opportunity to opt out.

A terrific Fortune 500 company to work for.
Team Leader - Inventory Control (Former Employee) –  West Nyack, NYFebruary 9, 2017
You don't stay with a company for 26 years if you didn't like what you were doing. I had advanced thru the company warehouse/distribution center. Management was very cooperative. They would take the time to explain what they wanted and when. They would assist when necessary. All in all a great company to work for.
Pros
Employee MEGA plan

Test Administrator (Current Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAFebruary 5, 2017
The staff is not always on top of their game. The hardest part of the job is the repetitive nature and level of interest in the word. You can never take time away for a break.

While the benefits are great, the downfalls tend to outweigh those benefits.
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXFebruary 4, 2017
Work-life balance very poor if you are not a manager. Top heavy with big-salaried managers who are more concerned about working from home than with what's going on at the office. Managers very out of touch.
Pros
Retirement, stock options, insurance, fully vested after three years
Cons
Disengaged managers, lack of resources to do the job, long hours, poor work/ life balance for nonmanagers

Credit and Collections Director / Manager (Former Employee) –  Old Tappan, NJFebruary 3, 2017
I ran the collections area for the Higher Education college accounts.
This was very challenging position that gave me time to set up training classes for the entire credit and accounts receivable departments.

the team leads and supervisor were always there if you needed them.
The hardest part was when we ran out of books.
The most enjoyable was meeting new people and learning new thing every day.
Pros
45 min lunch brakes
