    Current Employee - Information Technology

    I have been working at Pearson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefit and compensation package. Work from home seems pervasive throughout the company.

    New CIO seems more direct and much more organized than the previous one.

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical, political culture. Management typically communicates by issuing wordy multi-page memos and you have to parse it for the two or three sentences that actually say something. While there are some solid people managers there, horrible ones thrive. There is much, much talking AT employees and almost no talking WITH employees. Conference calls are extremely regimented, with first line managers instant messaging employees during the call to browbeat them about what to say or not say. See this sort of thing happen often enough, and even work that you would enjoy in any other setting becomes both tedious and stressful. Just a bizarre work culture, like a bad parody of 1950s workplace.

    The annual performance bonus is nice but, so far as I can tell, totally unrelated to performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your managers to take the review process seriously and relate it to the annual bonus. Institute 360 reviews; some of your mgmt team are abusive thugs and you have no visibility to that.
