Working as Tech Support at Pearson was a dead end job
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee), Burlington, ONMarch 19, 2015
The work itself can be easy but the pay is relatively low and there are no opportunities for promotions.

It is a call-centre where the managers will micro manage your every move.

I have enjoyed my job at Pearson Canada
Packaging & Returns Material Handler (Current Employee), Newmarket, ONMarch 18, 2015
Pros: short commute to work
Cons: pay rate not high enough
I sort through the orders to match up the loose picks with the bulk picks, Once this has been done, I then use the forklift to take the orders to the appropriate department. Once I have completed all of this, I then go to the department and help with packing the orders so they can be shipped out to the customers. I receive invoice into the system. I put skids of product back into rack locations.
I work with my Leader to ensure that everything gets done by the due dates.
I don't feel that my job is hard. I'm busy all day and the is what I enjoy about the job. I know when I go to work that I won't be sitting around doing nothing.

Professional and confusing
Software Engineer / Escalation Specialist (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCFebruary 26, 2015
This company has given me the impression that it does not know what it wants. Aside from all the technical quality it's people have, it does not make good choices. Management has been a real issue.

Probably the fact that this is a mega corporation with varying interests is the reason why they have made poor software choices. I don't think they're a successful software company.
