    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Successful company, some good coworkers, education is important mission

    Cons

    terrible management, ongoing restructuring, very low morale, salaries don't grow, employees no longer valued (the core value of "decency" is a joke!) under new CEO, bad office space -- absolutely toxic place when I left, and current employees report it's the same or even worse. Folks who have been there since "the good ole days" are counting down to retirement; others probably would love to be among the layoffs. Even the young newbies, who are usually energetic and optimistic, are beaten down and quickly move on after getting a taste. As others have written, everyone has a workload of at least 2 or 3 people... without a thank-you or pat on the back in sight. You're supposed to be grateful just to be within Pearson's once-hallowed halls and feel privileged despite being buried by the muck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People liked working there with Marjorie Scardino at the helm; before Fallon employees didn't feel like overworked cogs in a machine that's not set up to produce efficiently. Train managers better, try to keep good people working there, reward folks for hard work, fill vacancies, and figure out a business model that might work before you shuffle folks around (or out) over and over. There's no reason to roll out a program that's been proven by pilot groups not to work... unless you're going to fix it! Come out of your boardrooms and witness what it's actually like to work in the jobs that make your company profitable year after year and line your pockets; open your eyes to the mess that is now your empire. You must improve working conditions and morale; your shiny reputation is very, very tarnished. Employees, vendors, authors, freelancers, and probably customers are pretty disappointed the past few years, and your downward trends continue.
