Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

Who else is PUMPED for the NSM???

Scorching 112° heat for 5 days!

Sessions with complete strangers since 2/3 of your team and DM were fired!

Learning the in’s & out’s of a failing English list!

Selling lesions from the wildly talented L&D team!

Pep talks from RB & KC about why “People Matter!”

Hospitality Suites that would be better hosted in a funeral home!

The Follie’s where can all have a laugh & sigh of relief for another 6 months!

I’m bursting with excitement. Is it too early to pack my bags?!?

See you all there!! (Assuming that I do not jump off of a bridge first!!)

Yesterday was fun being insulted and talked down to by Onecrm and Tableau goons justifying their lousy functionality. Handing out stickers like we're in kindergarten. Just a great use of our time.

It’s the last day...will someone tell me when all of this invigoration is supposed to happen?
So far all we have done is learning stations on technology & product that everyone should know by now.
I pray that I did not miss the invigoration!!!

Fingers crossed other people brought their cowboy hats too! I’d hate for a Windy City gentleman to be the only fool who did. SMDH.

Can't wait for the sales meeting! Certifications for the third year in a row! Nothing better for moral than having to demo over and over year after year on the same outdated products. Then have to listen to management tell us how we are winning market share, need to move faster, and embrace change. Is anyone believing this c-ap anymore? We are getting our a-- handed to us and this company has never moved fast. Our change is more like musical chairs while we piss off and lose customers with every change we make.

I’d be more invigorated with the thought of an out of network colonoscopy than going to this clown show of a meeting.

The NSM will usher in a new generation of successes for Pearson. Our leaders have created an unbelievable schedule of rewarding sessions. I can't wait. The health and wellness events that are scheduled will invigorate and challenge you. And the impressive sessions by pre sales and services teams will motivate you to sell more digital products than you thought possible. Your minds and bodies will be absolutely invigorated. This is going to be amazing. Can't wait to see you all there!

When are the dates for the NSM and where can I find video of the sessions to see how dejected and unmotivated the sales force will be?

I SO badly wanted to book my flight out the last night and skip the Follies.

Yes, I’d rather not head home to my family but rather stick around to have a good laugh at the expense of all of KC’s terrible decisions since his arrival.

SO. STUPID.

There are still Follies- new host. But they also have a free night with nothing planned before the night of the Follies so they can keep folks around longer than needed and pay for an extra night of hotels and meals for everyone. I wonder how many salaries could have been saved with all the $ they are dropping on that!

(Inside the Pearson executive meeting on the NSM)

I know just what to do! Let's bring our remaining employees to the desert in the middle of the

f*-#"(+ summer! Really make them sweat. Drown them in alcohol and force feed them terrible hotel food, all while smiling and crying our crocodile tears. (taps fingers together a la Mr. Burns) Excellent...We'll even approve a budget of $60 for the Phollies. This can all be done virtually in like two days. But let's put them in the hot box for 5 days straight! Lousy customers can wait! AND, we can drop a few million dollars in the process. It's a brilliant plan!!!!

I just want to know if I'm eligible for leadership council again. Full disclosure I am an inconsistent performer--like a roller coaster, but somehow I qualify each year.

Read your email. The Follies are indeed taking place. You can’t stop the Pearson fun train just because people are quit.

In the wise words of Chevy Chase al la National Lampoon’s Vacation: “It’s a quest for fun! I’m gonna have fun. You’re gonna have fun. We’re all gonna have so much (explicative) fun we’ll need plastic surgery to remove our (explicative) smiles! You’ll be whistling “Zippity Doo Da” out of your (explicative)!!”

See y’all there!!!
