    Pros

    Good Company to work.. Good life balance

    Cons

    Job is not secure, entire business is on sale... far behind form the current trend.. whatever competitor has done 10 years back, Pearson doing now... Useless & outdates products, Very very Poor support & low retention rates

    Advice to Management

    Instead of selling business , hire visionary leaders. India is the largest market specially in school business , don't kill the department who is giving golden egg. Digitization is Ok but don't only focus on My pedia, its poor product as per current trend. You sold Tutor Vista to Byjos now see how Byjos taking profit from it.. Easy to understand you leadership not proficient. Anyways people sitting in UK dont give a Dammn to advice.
