    Former Employee - Administration in Harlow, England

    I worked at Pearson full-time (more than 3 years)


    Nice building and on-site facilities. People nice but very apparent local work-force – effort required to fit in if you’re not from round those parts.
    Benefits are unrivalled, including summer hours; early finish Friday throughout the year; flexible hours; free tea/coffee making facilities; performance & company-based bonus; Sharesave scheme and discounts; generous holiday.
    Good training and communication on company operations.


    Pay not at all competitive and it was known among colleagues that pay-rises are rarely considered outside of standard bonuses and inflation increases. Large local employers, therefore lack of movement within this department, resulting in severe lack of progression. When opportunities did arise, often offered to external candidates. While friendly, it is a fairly noisy and distracting work environment but headphones are permitted to dissuade colleagues from sharing their life stories with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to avoid allowing longer-serving employees to dictate team dynamics based on their fear of change and strength in numbers – encourage quiet ones to speak up.
