I am new to Pearson and have only been here 4/5 months. I read the Glassdoor reviews and felt confident making the move. But now I feel Iike I made a huge mistake.
Holy cr-p - it seems like every day I’m on a call and someone has gotten laid off or someone’s team has gotten cuts. Then there’s the town halls announcing mass layoffs. Everyone here seems to think this is normal - my manager says “oh I think we’re safe till Christmas but I’m not sure..” What the heck - how do you all work like this? The stress and anxiety of getting laid off is keeping me up at night. As a newbie I know I’m most likely to get cut first.
I want to quit but who’s going to hire me after only being here 5 months? Does anyone have any advice? I’d appreciate it because I’m just lost right now. I feel like such a failure that I thought this would be a good step in my career.
