unstable
rather not say (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 25, 2014
Pros: affordable healthcare
Cons: lots of layoffs, they won't retrain employees to try and retain; very political
Pearson is a global company, therefore the benefits are great. However it is unstable and the culture is poor. A new CEO was named in 2013 and starting in the fall of 2013, layoffs have been happening. They won't retrain employees for other jobs. They have had several small layoffs...probably to keep it out of the public eye. The remaining employees – more... are nervous and scared. Pearson spends a lot of time trying to highlight certain groups and what a 'great' company it is, rather than spending the money/time on things that matter to the entire population of employees. It is not the place they portray it to be. – less
