Loved the work there. The people I worked with were the best I have ever been around. Pay could be a bit more competitive, but it is pretty good. A variety of jobs and responsibilities made it great for someone who might find repetition a problem

Excellent employer
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Irving TXDecember 8, 2013
After being laid off from McGraw-Hill Education, I had thought I might continue in sales with an education publishing. It was an excellent company to work with. Extremely friendly and welcoming group of people.
I accepted the position with Pearson as a contract position that I had hoped would turn into a full time permanent position, but it did not. – more... Pearson also is undergoing some financial strains and the sales office laid off two full time employees and me. – less
