Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

Video K--led the Publishing Star

Anyone else told they need to create a video about how much you love Pearson and believe in management in order to get your job back? Hahahah. Oh my lord. This Pearson company is a complete disaster. Give me the severance. Not going to soft shoe and dance in place for Little Kevvys amusement. I live in California but I'm not producing and starring in films for circus clowns.

"I was laid off in 2014. They had 2 job openings to apply. I applied to both along with 2 other competent co-workers. No other people applied. No one was hired. Both hiring managers were laid off within the following year. It's just a method of herding the cattle out the door."

I can vouch for that, went through the process of reapplying for positions around the same time period. The interviews went well (I thought), but something never felt real, and I was notified pretty quickly that I was not chosen. From what I understand, the position that I interviewed for was never filled.

Video is for real! Ask any of the FMs that aren’t walking away. Cheerleader is exhausting. People who are smart know they don’t know everything. People who aren’t smart think they know EVERYTHING! bet you a million dollars!

It's not fake news at all. I know marketing people who have to do it, cheerleader.

Seriously? I SO wish I would have received the severance. WHY wasn’t I one of the chosen ones?! Why must I suffer here.

Submitting this video is the same as crossing the picket lines. Do NOT be on the wrong side of history.

Peak Pearson. First of all, what company lays someone off, then says they can "reapply" for a new position, or in some cases they are reapplying for their EXACT same position. Why not make the decision on who gets laid off and who fills the open positions all at the same time. PC even had to "reapply" for his job. What a waste of time, money and resources.

I'm not sure how anyone could respect themselves if they submitted one of those videos.
