    Lots of turn over and too many immature, over emotional women

    Former Employee - Field Sales

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the field so I didn't have to put up with foolishness on a day-to-day basis and because of my background my salary was high for the job $75,000, and I made significant bonuses. If you play the right games with the right people you can get promoted.

    Cons

    Pearson is not interested in what their customers want or what their employees have to say, all they want is for you to smile and do your job and agree with whatever they tell you. If you share a frustration or expose a problem your manager will try to get you to quite by repeatedly throwing you under the bus. I have been contacted by colleagues since I left for advice on how to document problems with managers who lie - all the time - and who to contact at HR about their problem. There are a lot of young women working there who don't have the maturity to manage - they act like middle school girls, seriously, and they never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

    Product teams are hit or miss - some are supportive and others are a nightmare. You can't get your customer what they need if the product teams don't support you - that was a huge frustration.

    Upper management is either unaware of the problems or they believe that the machine that they are will just keep working. This is a conspicuously huge company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your reps on the ground. You are not doing that now, the culture is terrible. Stop the turn over. You need to hire and promote mature people and add more men into the mix.
