Great environment for part-time job and meeting bright individuals
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.
Pros
Parking is available a reasonable rate; the work week was about 12 hours
Cons
The pay rate was a little low I wish I had more hours.

Fun Workplace
A lot of pressure, HR not helpful with underperforming employees. Seems employees run the show and managers just sit around bickering between themselves

Don’t leave your job for this company
Many employees have left or let go. High turnover, no flexibility with breaks timed and lunch. Dialer system like call centre and absolutely no advancement
Retirement plan is good

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.
Pros
Games room, free lunches, company events, educational resources, flex-hours
Cons
Boring, limited room for growth

Supportive management, large industry, medium to low salary
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.

Secure job little room for advancement
Secure job but little room for vertical growth. Difficult market to operate in and sell in. Benefits are very good and work/life balance is also very good.

Used to be a good place to work
Have not worked here in several years so hope it is better than when I left. I can't give a current review. Most of the people I knew were also let go.

It's a busy environment with constant work however the work can be fulfilling and fun. Management tries to keep the environment light and fun. It's a good place to start building your career.

Not the best place
If your goal is to pay something off and you really need the money. Then go ahead. You will have to sacrifice your social life though. Highly stressful

Good company with adequate supervision
work as a test administrator was a bit repetitive and un-stimulating, but that does not reflect the company as a whole. The physical work environment was fine.

Ok company
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
Pros
the people
Cons
fluctuating hours

Continually challenging
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.

Good workplace with emphasis on work-life balance
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.
Pros
Summer hours
