No comments. Just a place to have apart time job. No guaranteed hours. The pay is also very less. The same routine without any growth. It can't benefit in your career.
I got the opportunity to learn a process that provides integrity in tests for certifications. The senior team members and site manager were patient while I gain knowledge and experience.
Parking is available a reasonable rate; the work week was about 12 hours
The pay rate was a little low I wish I had more hours.
Decent place to jump start your career, software development experience is lacklustre, awesome games room.
You have daily stand-ups in the morning. You are given tasks, you complete them by the deadline and you are given the freedom to do so however you wish. The team is great, company culture is spectacular, there is a small games room with table tennis, foosball, mini-basketball, and a Wii. Sometimes you get free lunches and there are occasional events such as a company walk-together. During the summer, the company offers special flex-hours. There are a lot of educational resources available to you to explore. Safety standards are great with occasional fire drills. Lots of potential for innovation held back by the company's organizational skills, or lack thereof. Work can be extremely boring sometimes.
Games room, free lunches, company events, educational resources, flex-hours
Boring, limited room for growth
A nice place to learn and improve technical knowledge, troubleshooting skills and different tools. A vast line of products and services provided in more than 47 countries.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
We have to follow some strict policies and procedures at Pearson. It is a relaxed place to work, with a small staff of only 5 people. Everyone works well together and it is a fun environment to work in. I have been with the company for about 5 years now, and other that the fact that winter time slows down so bad, it is a great place to work
Many co-workers from associated departments were supportive and friendly. Benefits were good. However, salary was less than that of a brick and mortar school having similar roles. Parking available. Hours were standard 8, but they provide an hour lunch in addition to the 8 hours and two 15 minute breaks - bringing your day to a long 9.5 hrs long. They did not allow for many exceptions to hours or breaks at all. Promotions often went to those who were able to network the best, have personally relationships with management, especially upper management, despite lacking key traits of the roles they were promoted too. In some instances, friends hired friends to report directly under them. Also, after years of obvious friendships in and out of the workplace, when people were promoted, friends were not placed under new Directors or Managers. Nepotism, seemed common place. Sadly, they rarely promoted within unless the person is seen to be a "people pleaser" and have little to no life "obstacles" (i.e. family, children, medical issues). Many people who were qualified and loyal to the company did not get advancement as they should have. Training during fast-paced times like enrollment periods and course start left little time for training new hires or learning newly implemented methods or practices. Working here would be ideal for someone who may want to get experience in the field for a couple of years to be able to transition to a traditional college or university school role in administration, advising, or managing. Tuition reimbursement available for courses/programs - more...
Benefits, Parking, Short-term Experience
Long Hours, Promotions difficult to obtain, Culture Issues
The employees were very nice to work with and they had great benefits. Unfortunately, the culture was not very good. Management is not well suited for their position and does not understand people, which contributed to the negative culture.
Great Health Benefits
Culture Not Good
