Great Experience
Program Design Lead (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 15, 2014
I worked for Pearson Education for 22 years. I learned a lot about publishing during my time there. I designed and art directed college textbook covers and interiors. I also supervised 2 Senior Designers and 1 Desktop Coordinator along with outside freelance designers, illustrators, photographers, and photo researchers.

My colleagues were very talented – more... and inspiring. I enjoyed working with them as a team. The most challenging part of the job was obtaining timely feedback from offsite team members. The most enjoyable part of the job was the creative challenge. I truly love designing and it was a wonderful opportunity to work on many different types of projects. – less

Great workplace with respectable management
Associate Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Bloomington, MNApril 29, 2014
Pros: nice facility, good benefits, decent wage
Cons: commute/struggles with communicating with many customers, too much of a reliance on the functionality of provided tools/software
That call center that I worked in for Pearson VUE is a very nice facility and environment to a do full-time position in phone support. A typical day of work would include taking inbound calls assisting testing candidates with getting scheduled/rescheduled for their licensing certification exam. The management and coworkers here were all very professional – more... and accommodating. The hardest part of the job was managing the phone calls from candidates with very difficult to understand English. These phone calls tended to go a lot longer, and therefore would subject me to more coaching from my assigned quality assurance coach. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to seldom encounter a testing candidate that were knowledgeable about sports and enjoyed expressing what different players/franchises they liked. – less

Productive and challenging work environment; great benefits
Operations Business Analyst-Workforce Management (Current Employee), Lebanon, INApril 24, 2014
Pros: you have opportunities to learn more and constantly be challenged. when you show the desire to learn, you will be given more work to do.
Cons: no room to grow with pearson; there is too much outsourcing since 2012.
A typical day at Pearson begins with a To-do list that you don't always get a chance to fulfill until late in the day or has to be be constantly realigned to priorities. You are busy with customer and technical issues that you will handle with a First-Call resolution frame of mind.
Learning is unlimited. If you want to grow your skills set, you will. – more... If you are satisfied to just do your job, you can do that as well.
Management had been deep in experience until recent reorganizations; but always willing to listen.
The hardest part of the job is knowing that communication is not always available to you. You will need a can-do attitude to get the answers yourself; ask a lot of questions, and think outside of the box.
The most enjoyable part is the family-oriented teams within Pearson. Your co-workers are interested in you and supervisors willingly work to develop you to be one of the best. – less

Strange tableside mannerisms
Temporary Scorer (Former Employee), Lansing, MIMarch 31, 2014
Pros: two breaks and a lunch, the people you are able to come across, the quiet work atmosphere.
Cons: poor management, unreasonable production standards (similar to a plant/factory production model), unacceptable and childish behavior from supervisors, unclear and nonconsistent training material.
When contacted by Pearsons, you're told you will earn a 13.00 per hour. This is false. According to the hiring information given upon being recruited by a computerized system, it is revealed that you make a certain amount per test graded. The amount of tests you are required to grade would be roughly 4-7 tests a minute, in order to successfully meet – more... Pearsons' standards for their production model of 100-150 tests per hour or 5000-5625 tests per week. The training is a single day, and the scorer is expected to perform at top out-put after that single day. If the scorer cannot produce to the satisfaction of standards put forth by Pearsons, they will be repeatedly told they may be let go. This isn't exactly a productive method to keep the overall spirit of the work place at its highest. Overall, the information presented by their website does not meet what truly is expected of their temporary scorers. – less

Inventory Clerk (Former Employee), Cranbury, NJMarch 22, 2014
great place to work where I enjoyed where I have a passion for because it makes me feel important because I have to make sure that nothing happens for example theft or even a fight. I always get along with my cow workers because we help each other and the most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction that I have and a pleasure that I feel when – more... I left off the work just because i make or made the day perfect of what i did or what i do. and where everybody let you do the job without putting pressure. – less
