    Former Employee - Product Manager in London, England

    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 5 years


    Being able to leave that terrible place by 4pm everyday and having 30 days leave every year are about the only positives I can draw from working there for 5 years.


    This is an extremely corporate environment where only the most cut-throat of people can climb the ladder. The pay is poor, especially for London and there is very little chance of pay increases to match your experience in any given role. The higher powers have no interest in meeting anyone below them and constant "restructures" are unsettling.
    The constantly changing education market is also frustrating to work within as the metaphorical goal-posts are constantly shifting. Lots and lots of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some sort of system where you can progress through levels within your role that will help you move up the corporate ladder.
