Featured Review

Current Intern - Student Consultant

I have been working at Pearson

Pros

Amazing work environment and colleagues

Cons

I'm not sure there is any

Former Employee - ANZ Sales Manager - Vocational & Professional

I worked at Cengage full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexible, supportive environment with good communication channels and highly qualified and motivated SMEs always happy to assist sales. Great, inclusive travel perks and a good bonus scheme for sales... people. Excellent technical support available for the many systems on which reps need to be proficient. Vice President, Higher Education leads team in a personal, kind and inspiring manner - deep understanding of business and of people.

Cons

Base salary a bit lower than it should be and bonus scheme is stagnate in comparison to ever increasing budgets - there should be more correlation here. That said - if targets are achieved OTE is... pretty good!
