    I have been working at Pearson as a contractor (more than 5 years)


    Respected brand
    Some very talented individuals especially those working with cutting edge technologies
    Big potential for change across the board - education and publishing industries (both of which Pearson are Yesteryear/today's leaders) are going through a massive amount of change... if done right, Pearson will remain leaders - however from what I have seen this is doubtful.


    Stifling bureaucracy
    A massive amount of resistance to change - as the business attempts to define and move towards a digital first strategy, there are too many people placing roadblocks trying to keep the status quo.
    Weak management
    Not a true meritocracy - people promoted due to length of service not necessarily expertise or solid performance - leading to pure incompetence (although there are a few who really do think outside the box and contribute to the digital first strategy positively).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
