    Pros

    Benefits and Cafeteria in the building with decent food. Great team members, management is the only problem.

    Kontras

    I don't even know where to start. The micromanagement is pure insanity. All calls are recorded and played back to you in weekly one on one's, breaks are monitored, constant relentless pressure on factors that are out of your control. If your student wants to cancel their enrollment the assumption is that it is your fault for not getting deep enough into the initial discovery call. You are required to go by a very... rigid script on all introductory calls which is excessive and tends to irritate most of the students. 80 calls per day required but if you are not meeting your metrics it is frowned upon to have less than 100 dials in a day. In some scenarios, most members of certain teams are not hitting their goals...and 8 out of 12 advisors on a team were put on a performance improvement plan.

    Trust your employees and stop treating us like $10/hour call center agents. Stop monitoring aux out times and breaks like we can't be trusted, and have some confidence in your people!

    Pros

    Pearson did a good job of keeping HR fairly organized compared to other companies I have since worked for.

    Kontras

    With the decisions they have made over the past decade, it is hard to understand just how they are going to thrive going forward.

    Pros

    Lots of vacation time, nice facilities.

    Kontras

    I thought for a long time about whether I wanted to post any reviews of this company, because I am honestly so much happier now that they're in my rearview mirror and am hesitant to relive things. But I really want to caution potential applicants. They are good at making their employees very jaded while stringing them along with broken promises about how things are going to get better. The job descriptions on their... website do not match what is actually needed for the roles. Training is a joke, you learn most of what you need to know from your peers once you get to the floor. The systems are outdated and not built to handle the volume of leads coming in for each school so everything breaks constantly and none of the systems are linked to each other. They legally aren't allowed to fire you over not meeting enrollment goals or write about it in your yearly review but they'll always find a way to punish you or fire you because of it. Senior management puts it on ground level employees to influence culture and middle management are not bought in to company values. This is also a for-profit company and they run all their non-profit college enrollment departments like for profit schools. You aren't there to help students, you're there to sell to them. The departments are filled with ex-University of Phoenix employees and culture is really passive aggressive and toxic. Managers are useless for the most part and are just there to micromanage. Goals are unattainable with how leads are managed and the for profit culture really comes through when you express concerns about how students are being handled or how employees are being set up to fail. All the employees are forced to become arrogant and anti-collaborative in order to get anywhere and move up. The pay is also not consistent and some new hires make more than tenured employees in the same role. Pay is not competitive based on other industry positions and has less benefits, no commission or work from home perks. This is a good job to have for a year if you have no experience in enrollment and want to get some before applying to a real school, because they pretty much hire anyone with a bachelor's degree. They are good at trapping employees and gaslighting though so dont stay too long or believe any of their promises.

    If management is truly concerned about retaining talent, they need to take a hard look at themselves and the people they hire to lead recruitment and be honest about why no one stays more than a year or two.

    Pros

    Incredible group of intelligent, hardworking, dedicated employees. Good benefits. Ability to work remotely is amazing, especially in the winter or when NJTransit decides providing train service is optional. Some of the managers are genuinely invested in you and have your back.

    Kontras

    Everything else. Leadership does not care about its employees in the least. Everyone is a number with a salary, which is grossly apparent during round after round of layoffs. Leadership has no clear direction for the company and the plans they do have change constantly. They do not understand how the company operates or how their products get made. Seniority accounts for nothing during layoffs. Leadership CONSTANTLY... talks about making the company "lean," which is corporate speak for overworking whomever is left after each round of layoffs. Morale is pretty much nonexistent and leadership has no interest in changing that, putting the onus of happiness at work on the employees they're overworking. Leadership has run Pearson into the ground and gutted everything that made it great. They put money and profits before employees every single time.

    There's nothing to say that hasn't been said in countless organizational health surveys. It's only a matter of time until Pearson is sold off to the highest bidder or folds completely.

    Pros

    Flexible hours Good pay Good exit package Good technology while I was there. I learned a lot. Very advanced in handling remote meetings and employees while I was there.

    Kontras

    High-level management had trouble meeting you in the eye when it wasn't a requirement of the meeting. They treated us like equipment rather than people in a lot of in-person meetings. Realities were often ignored if they didn't mesh with the party line about what was going on.

    Rat an das Management

    Things were profitable when Pearson was a bunch of little companies that knew how to be individually profitable. Trying to become one large monolith was destructive on so many levels.

    Great work environment, friendly and supportive people to work with.

    Not much room for progression. Salary could be a lot better.

    Rat an das Management

    Support staff with progression and appraisals should be more fair rather than generic for everyone.
