    Pros

    Coworkers were great--passionate about putting out the best content for our customers, eager to work hard, friendly, kind, and ready to help out. Benefits are pretty good, and work-life balance is a high priority. Good severance packages.

    Kontras

    Upper management has thoughtlessly decimated content teams in SF to pay for (mediocre for the area) software engineer salaries, which they're hiring desperately to meet end-of-the-year goals for Pearson's new platform. Goals that will be missed, and probably result in stockholders shutting down the company. Even if the platform goes live, there will be no new state-of-the-art content to fill it, and customers will... not be happy. Prospective software engineers beware--perks are bad, with few paid lunches, a sad spread of snacks, and mediocre tools. Slack is being phased out to be replaced with Microsoft Teams by Fall.

    Rat an das Management

    For every other year since 2013, management has slashed teams and asked the remaining employees to take on ever-increasing workload--challenges that those employees have taken on in good faith. Most of those people are now gone after a drawn out and painful layoff process, and those who are left are disillusioned, angry, and have little motivation to stay. We've been disrespected by these seven months of layoffs and... uncertainty, and you will see a corresponding loss in business. You clearly made business decisions based on numbers and not by consulting the people who actually make the content Pearson bases its reputation on, and, long term, this is a huge mistake. I won't be surprised if Pearson goes the way of Cengage fairly soon.
