Enjoyed the ongoing challenges...
Sr. Assessment Design Coordinator (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXDecember 12, 2014
My time at Pearson was good. I was able to advance rapidly, starting out in a warehouse/operations environment and ending my career with Pearson on the assessment research & design side of the business. Challenges were regularly presented and often times required strong communication skills in order to engage and enlist the service of others within – more... the organization as well as vendors.

Job security was a concern as Pearson moved with greater focus towards emerging markets and online learning and assessment. In order to align with short-term goals, long-term goals, and efficacy, it was necessary for Pearson to evaluate human resource requirements and ultimately resulted in positions being eliminated.

I enjoyed the opportunity to work for Pearson and am grateful for the opportunity they gave me to gain valuable experience, learn new skills, and work with some truly wonderful people. – less

Active, Creative Sales Environment
K-12 Humanities Specialist (Current Employee), Irving, TXNovember 19, 2014
Pros: freedom to be creative and work at your own pace for the most part
Cons: infrastructure is confusing
I have enjoyed working in such an active sales environment. This company cares deeply about the well-being and success of their customers. Customer service is their first concern. I am responsible for building direct customer relationships and presenting winning sales messages after identifying and qualifying customers needs.

Skip this job
Customer service (Former Employee), Old Tappan, NJNovember 7, 2014
Cons: see review
The job is a dead end temp job. They put you through two weeks of classroom training on order entry. The computer systems are very old and confusing. Then, you have one week of one on one desk training, where another rep helps you take live orders. After that, you are on your own. They give you two SCHEDULED 15 minute breaks, and a SCHEDULED 45 minute – more... lunch. They want you to take as many calls as possible. They monitor calls. The people that work there look miserable. – less

Great group of people to work with. Employment here was on a temporary basis for their Back To School time frame. Lunches are short (30 minutes) with no place close to eat. Lunch schedules often made getting food from the cafeteria impossible for lunch.
