Pearson PLC Layoffs

POLS meeting with KW

Just got a calendar invite for another wave-style meeting. KW is meeting with small groups of EAs for an hour in several waves from Wednesday to Thursday. Anyone have any thoughts about what’s going to happen? I’m sure we’ll find out tomorrow.

Personal Info updates

HR requesting that employees confirm personal information. Probably standard procedure.. but with a long history of lay-offs, is this anything to be concerned about in the near future?


Well, it looks like the posts here are being moderated and removed pretty quickly! Makes you wonder how much time senior “leadership” spends on this page instead of actually LEADING. Nice work KW and JV. You must be proud.

Andy Bird

Does anyone know how Andy Bird feels about layoffs? It would be nice to not have that hanging over us all the time and be known as the layoff solution. One thing’s for sure, he had great luck with Goofy and Donald Duck, hoping he can work that... —  read more 

Will it ever get better?

It wouldn’t surprise me if the person who continues to brag about the daily 3 and 4 cent gains in their Pearson stock shares is also the one making all the decisions around Pearson! Talk about “Ready, Fire, Aim” You lay-off countless EAs and an... —  read more 

Pearson stock is on fire!

For all you haters out there, Pearson stock was up 8.5% today and over 10% for the week. I love weeks like this to pad my net worth. Although you can never please all employees, the great majority of us love working here, which really is a great... —  read more 

This is on Pearson

Pearson has been treating its employees like c-ap and now management is seeing the results of that treatment. A happy employee is a good employee. A mistreated employee couldn't care less if he or she is doing a good job. And that is becoming... —  read more 

Dissonant Days Ahead

All these roles being filled with all the wrong people is close to completion! KW’s half-c—ed plan is coming together like a fork in a power outlet. With the perplexing promotions of those who couldn’t get it done in their previous positions now... —  read more 

Pearson's path to destruction

When good leadership is in place in a company, it can be felt throughout the entire organization. With good leadership, corporate culture isn’t forced, it is developed. Communication is daily and open. Everyone understands the vision and goals of the... —  read more 

Bloodbath Today

Good luck everyone, today looks to be a Potentially bad one for us. Let’s try to support and help each other through Pearson’s “leadership”. If you can help each other or have information you want to share, please do.

How are you responding here? I'm struggling with these lawsuits. When I speak to our C-Suite folks individually logic and reason really does hold... —  read more 

Here we go again...

Get ready for TEP part 2. They might call it something different, but it's more of the same. System "efficiencies" that aren't efficient for anyone except the technology and operations team that can cut their own costs in the short term. Meanwhile... —  read more

Test Center Employees

Test administrators and others at testing centers are being paid through mid-April. Any word on what might happen after that? I'm wondering if they'll furlough most of them. It doesn't seem like these locations will be reopening soon.

Town Hall went well?

I got caught in the one crm vortex of pre-qualification and negotiation and missed it, unfortunately. Got to make sure my data entry is on point. Tracking that business, navigating tah-blow, closing out opportunities after rummaging thru oasis... —  read more
