Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

Fallon out

As soon as a new ceo is found. He's gone. Interesting timing and perhaps a weak attempt for the company to save face in the midst of such drastic changes. Reminds me of Bagdad Bob during the Iraq War trying to convince the world that his country is winning easily, meanwhile it lay in ruins and everyone knows it.

I hope & pray BK is not considered. Cannot stand the way that guy toots his own horn. He’ll take a missed shot and tell you why he meant to do it. Guy is pathetic.

Though I did like the Twitter account that was telling about his extra marital affairs with CS while at McGraw.

Anyone think BK is in the running? His post on LI seemed to show his interest.

People are pretty funny. Yes, JF needed to go, but the company foundation was crumbling due to many decisions and lack of vision from the previous CEO, MS.

  • "since Fallon became CEO on January 1, 2013, the value of Pearson’s stock on the New York Stock Exchange has dropped by 57 percent, closing at $8.45 at the time of writing..."

Could you imagine my DM's reaction if my territory fell by 57% and I was able to hold on for the last 6 years? We've let people go who've hit goal 12 out of 13 years. John, it's been a ride, now go home and enjoy that hot tea and toast.
