    Current Employee - District Sales Manager in Noida
    Current Employee - District Sales Manager in Noida

    I have been working at Pearson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pace is slow and will work well for someone who wants to just 'coast'
    A lot of re-org and leadership level exits - so its easy to just not do anything at all
    Good work life balance
    Decent perks

    Cons

    With all the re-org - it is just plain chaotic in every business vertical HEd, Publishing, K12, Schools, Tech
    New recruits in place of leaders who left after 'cashing out' look incompetent to fill those shoes - seem to have been hired in haste

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Esp in the 'acquired' business verticals - reorganise or change the 'support' teams, some of these folks are good, but most of them are part of a legacy team that were hired at the 'cheapest' by an entrepreneur who wanted to keep costs very low (when he started out)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
