"Pearson is in the midst of an incredibly complex transition in trying to remain relevant as the world moves towards technical solutions to meet the needs of next generation learners. It's been a long, tedious process with no end in sight which has made it an incredibly difficult environment to find success or to feel productive. Senior leadership seems ill equipped to handle the changing business and has been in a constant state of movement with little outcomes or real direction which leads to a feeling that we are on a ship without a captain with no clear destination. Individual team contributors are highly competent and in general work environment is flexible and supportive of work / life balance the majority of the time. High performers will feel stifled and discouraged in this environment."
