The IT Crowd

HR is a joke, you report bullying they go against you. You have witnesses but they are too scared to come forward in case of retribution. As soon as you report it you suddenly find your self getting put on PIPS. The fact is IT buys things for so... read more

Rampant bullying and intimidation

Bullying and intimidation by the DMs and RMs is rampant at Pearson. Yet they offer zero help or guidance. Very toxic culture. I've worked with all the regions and the central region is by far the worst. All the good Pearson people left 2010-2013... read more

Pearson is a mess, no wonder layoffs are coming

This company has been a complete mess since the latest CEO took over. There is absolutely no strategy for the overall company, different groups are either not communicating or are asserting their will (I am looking at you, Finance) in a way that does... read more

No forward thinking in Pearson

That was by far the worst NSM to date. They will never figure out how to alot time for the sessions. Not enough time and not every marketing team deserves time to speak. Focus on the $ makers that are coming out. Not the 5 copy adoption. There were... read more

Pearson Higher Ed

I'm surprised that Pearson Higher Ed did not restructure the sales force this summer. With the Senior VP of sales out the door, it would have made sense. It will be interesting how they operate in Q4.

More layoffs in the assessment division

They're probably going to shutter everything and ship it to MN. Testing numbers are down 30% this year. Customer service is suffering because there isn't enough staff to answer client inquires. Good luck to them. Get out before they can you.
