Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

The pay gap

It’s awful how the pay gap between the leading people and the employees here is getting bigger and bigger. This makes me sometimes feel like I'm working harder so our CEO can have a bigger salary and not working to earn a bigger salary myself. And then how do we stay motivated to keep working hard? It's hardly possible. Unfortunately, I'm pretty pessimistic that this pay gap will be growing even bigger?

Employees should be going crazy over this information. We can’t expense internet, team dinners cancelled using the Covid excuse, no company car, $25 expense account lunches need a paragraph of explaining but AB is living like a rock star here at Pearson. This is truly shameful!

Hyperfocusing on the 240k per year apartment begs the question of wouldn't it be cheaper for him to get a hotel room each time? He doesn't live in NY but travels there for business.
Unless the state makes you pay, there is no internet reimbursement, the healthcare & benefits are marginal, you're nicked and dimed in so many ways, many are going to lose their jobs around ASU and other failures but
this guy is fully taken care of in addition to his multimillion dollar salary. Make it make sense.

240K for the apartment stipend? Fantastic.

Did I hear that according to a UK media outlet, the new ceo is given a $20,000 per month stipend for an apartment in NYC when he's in town? That sounds utterly ridiculous if true. And we can't expense $50 internet/wifi charges? Ooooook.

You mean UK Corporate. Funny that 60% of revenue is generated in North America.

We are working so the CEO and a few others can make globs of money. The lower down the line you are, the worse you are treated. True for many corporations but the promotion of the hypocrisy of the values and the rudeness that is omnipresent make it the worst.

Motivation for me went out the window ages ago. When we are treated as valued employees, maybe I will care again. If I am still here...which I don't want to be. I think I need to join the Great Resignation!
