Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at Pearson for less than a year

Pros

In my time working at Pearson, though the time was short, the colleagues were very polite. People were all very punctual. The workload was fair for me.

Cons

The office was very quiet, nearly silent. Every day we have to record manually in word a timesheet listing the details of work we did every day. It was pretty time-consuming. Also the long term... contract colleagues they need to work overtime every day too.

Former Employee - Senior Sales Representative

I worked at Cengage full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great company and culture. Great people to work with.

Cons

Downsizing, not sure what will happen with the merger.
