    Former Employee - Global Project Management Intern in San Antonio, TX (US)

    I worked at Pearson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had a great time working there, company commited to diversity very flexible in terms of hours of work and very nice and supportive upper management.

    Cons

    Sometimes seems you are working for a public division. Process become slow as people have more flexibility to work according to their convenience. In terms of career opportunities they seem to have a great internship program but after you are gone out of company human resource does not keep any track of former interns or even mak much effort in retaining employees. Human Resource department is very desintegrated and does not work well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on improving human resources effort and centralizing activities instead of keeping each office working independently.

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, 5 star office setting

    Cons

    Stupid management decision, who never learn from their mistakes
    Bullsht promises of pay rise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never ever choose managers based on favoritism, or their looks

    Stop saying each and every year that we are making money, but then out of the blue fired us
    Study the market in MALAYSIA real hard.. Don't just give us gray statistics and use the term 'REDUNDANCY' to fire us

    Get real, Pearson is going down indeed. Because you management will never learn. 'Always Learning' seems to mock you right now.
