Technical Support (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 5 April 2018
This company is decent if you are going in to get experience and your foot in the door as a helpdesk role for example, however, there isn't much room to advance further unless higher-ups leave their positions. The work and life balance is also a challenge
Sales and Editorial Representative (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 3 January 2018
An non traditional sales job where you work with the top minds in their field. Working in a challenging industry that shrinks every year, but is on the cusp of a seismic shift in practice. Great work life balance.

Media Developer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 September 2016
Pearson is my first foray outside of Adult Education which was emphasizing corporate programs. The organization as a whole is trying to move toward digital content as a delivery system for their mostly print-based assets. I've gained a lot of exposure into how Digital can work with Print in terms of production and gained valuable insight into that type of workflow. The transition is slow, but more personnel are embracing Digital mediums.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 3 December 2015
Laid back environment with great management. Enjoy working with co workers. The only downside is that business can be quite slow in off peak seasons. There was not much work. I enjoy the perks and the incentives of working at Pearson. Unfortunately there is not much room for advancement.
Factory Line Worker (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 8 July 2015
In my 7 week expereince at Pearson education, I largely enjoyed the people. Job security gets 3 stars as the factory will likely shut down within the next ten years (half of it shut down during my 7 week endeavour last year). Job culture gets 2 stars as most people who work there don't really seem to enjoy their line of work very much. It seemed like the culture promoted the "work for the weekend" mentality, which is not something I personally believe in.
