Pearson is a great place to hone your skills but may not be the best place for a career, depends a great deal on which department you are in especially in POLS

    Maybe. Perhaps not at my level but certainly at higher levels there are many women in leadership roles.

Executive Sales Representative

This company has so much turnover and is desperate for new talent. Bargain hard for the best salary/compensation you can get. If they fall short, plan on staying a year or two so that you can get great experience. Also executive leadership/HR don't address issues that affect culture (sex, age discrimination and bullying) so this is a very toxic environment to work in.

    There have been many reductions in force and reorganizations since the company has not responded well to market shifts.

Great maternity package, and open to flex working. But don't get pregnant if you want to come back afterwards.

This is a good company. Fair and flexible. Although a lot of politics.

As a working mom, working with Pearson has allowed me flexibility so I can excel at my career as well as have a quality of life outside of work. Pearson is very flexible with remote work as well as flexible working hours.

It is a large company and different departments may have different cultures; however, the sales organization is a "boys club". Women are not respected, or paid equally. Leadership leverages ambiguous bonus incentive plan language to avoid fair and transparent compensation for women sales executives. This is well documented. Last year the CEO earned his performance bonus by reducing sales bonus payouts to his employees.

There is not a good work-life balance, and the daily stress is tough on women's health.

Leave policies are not good but everything else is. There is a great employee resource group - WILL - which offers amazing developmental opportunities. And it's not like a club. It is part of the business.
