Edexcel examiner (Current Employee), on lineJuly 18, 2014

I have enjoyed working for Edexcel as an examiner the experience has been an eye opener as I have never worked with computer marking programs.

Meeting the need of the customer
Production/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Smyrna, GAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: a job well done
Cons: no opportunity available for growth
A regular work day, spent processing licenses and resolving problems and answering questions from customer calls.Work had to be completed before the end of your shift including accounting balances on the check work for the day. The hardest part of the job was making sure everything balanced and verify funds so accounting was able to balance so the reports – more... that had to be turned in to management would be balance for the month end reports that was reported to HR head office account dept. My co-workers together would get the work and help each other get everything done by end of the day. The best part of the day is when we were able to resolve the problem and the customer was very happy with the results. – less

unstable
rather not say (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 25, 2014
Pros: affordable healthcare
Cons: lots of layoffs, they won't retrain employees to try and retain; very political
Pearson is a global company, therefore the benefits are great. However it is unstable and the culture is poor. A new CEO was named in 2013 and starting in the fall of 2013, layoffs have been happening. They won't retrain employees for other jobs. They have had several small layoffs...probably to keep it out of the public eye. The remaining employees – more... are nervous and scared. Pearson spends a lot of time trying to highlight certain groups and what a 'great' company it is, rather than spending the money/time on things that matter to the entire population of employees. It is not the place they portray it to be. – less
