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.
Expect all your meetings to be dominated by male employees. They are the ones management takes seriously. A female and male colleague could have same concern and management would listen to the man and call the woman hysterical. So much mansplaining
I've worked at Pearson for over 10 years and there are many women working at Pearson throughout the company in roles that span the corporate structure from entry level through the executive level. In speaking with colleagues outside of Pearson, I believe that the benefits are above average both in Healthcare/family care and many other programs to support work/personal life balance. Maternity leave is the bare minimum with many co-workers using all of their vacation time, personal and sick time for the year to be at home for the longest amount possible. I rarely see any men take advantage of the two weeks paternity leave afforded to them.
I've worked here for almost 3 years and there are a lot of women working in my department. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but new management is male-dominated and not open to the flexibility and work life balance we had before. Which makes it tougher for women to balance home and work obligations. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time.
Job Satisfaction Level
8 paid / 2 unpaid
If you live close by and have a flexible boss then I think you are okay. Otherwise, no!
