The work is very simple and monotonous. but mostly employed for casual positions. the team is very supportive and courteous. the enjoyable part is work being easy but the hardest part was waking up early to reach to the office in winter.

It is a very process based job. No stimulation to the brain. Hardest part of the job is uncertain shifts. Work culture is okay. Pay for casual job is okay. Proximity to residence is added bonus.
Pros
Easy process based job
Cons
Uncertainty of shifts

I enjoyed my time at Pearson despite it being very repetitive work and at times very tiring being on your feet all day. However, I did meet many great people and made a few friends.

I loved my job at Pearson however I felt undervalued as the work was challenging but i received lower pay than other companies in the same industry. Job security was low as people would be leaving almost every week due to job cuts which were driven by their US office decision making. It didn’t matter if you worked hard or did your job well. A company that only cares about their bottom line and not The talented people that work for them

Worked there awhile ago so not the best to write a current review of the place, was okay but the company at the time preferred quantity over quality.

Peace

First of all, I would like to thank Pearson Education for giving me this wonderful job opportunity. While working here, I became more meticulous. I got to know about NAPLAN Examinations. I along with my co-workers completed the entire project within the allotted period. Thus, it has added productivity and speed into my existing skills. I enjoyed the warm working environment and in the near future if I get an opportunity to work at Pearson Education, I will definitely grab it.

Pearson underwent a company overview and 40% of staff world wide were made redundant. Three of the five NSW sales team were amongst the cuts. Fortunately I was approached and recruited by Oxford University Press.

They are a very nice company they give people a fair go and they treat them with respect, they also supply a very clean and large break area. The other staff that I had to work with where great. Even thought he job was all manual work it wasn't all that hard, an enjoyable part of the job was the respect that was given.
Pros
Ample lunch area
Cons
All manual work
