Pearson Canada

Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Publishing, Printing, Media

  • My personal experience with Pearson has been positive and I am blessed to work with a great team at the Don Mills office. Having said that, not everyone around here is happy and some departments have a rather high turnover. Many of these things depend on the managers. I have to say, however, the bad ones tend to be weeded out eventually as was the case during one of the recent restructurings within the company. The system is pretty good at finding inefficiencies which is probably one of the reasons why the company as a whole has been so successful in recent years.

    The pay scale is average compared to other companies in my field of expertise. I could've easily made at least $10,000 more at a different place, but, likely, with fewer benefits. Pearson has a pretty good benefits package, a pension plan, gym subsidy, 60% off its books, corporate buying plans with Apple, Rogers and a few other companies. Bonus package is also decent and there's even a small bonus on top of it if the company has done well during the calendar year. Of course, the pay disparity between the upper brass (...) and lower management/sales/etc. is HUGE and the talk about "everyone contributing to company success" does not translate into "everyone benefiting from company success" in a fair manner.

    Overall, I'd say this is a good place to work, but your personal experience and opportunities for advancement will vary by dept.
