Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

Fictitious Job Titles and non-revenue driving positions

Sadly Pearson laid off many talented front line sales people. It sounds like it's still top heavy with a lot of VP's and General Managers...do we know if other non sales positions are still in place? In my short time, there were jobs that I had no clue what they did like Director of Student Advocacy, or Campus Ambassador Manager, or VP Creative Strategy. What value did these people bring to the table other than manage a bunch of college kids with even more vague positions. These jobs were positions created for the boys club or friends of the boys club. Please someone tell me they didn't let go a bunch of sales jobs yet keep these BS positions around--this is Pearson so I wouldn't be shocked.

Strategic Partnerships "gutted" in that some of the team was realigned under Higher Ed Sales. The EDs all seem to be racing out the door on their own.

Nice. So, you can insult males online but not female. Gotcha. Title IV anyone...?!

Why was Strategic Partnerships gutted? They were the successful part of HE.
