Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

The Emotional Stages of a Pearson Rep

The emotional stages of a Pearson rep:

  1. Triggered bc they got screwed on their bonus for the 5th straight year.

  2. They start looking for a new job. That will show them.

  3. Contact a bunch of ex Pearson people on LinkedIn telling them you want out FOR REAL this time. Then be super passive aggressive with likes and article shares regarding "why good employees quit" on LinkedIn so management see's it.

  4. Interview and get real job offers from good companies.

  5. Start telling your inner circle your resigning.

  6. Call management to resign. They offer you a lower, slap in the face, pay raise (or no pay raise) than the new job offer, and they PROMISE you some not-yet-created position that you will eventually move into "once headcount is approved"

  7. A year later your still a rep getting screwed on bonus and that headcount never got approved.

  8. Repeat.

The end.

People get s---ed in at Pearson because everyone is literally working 50% of the time. I know so many reps who don't even have full time daycare for their kids. They do a 9-3 schedule or some less than that. But then they all want to complain about having to go to campus.

Pearson is truly the blind leading the blind. No vision, everyone working only half the time, constant blame game, managers have zero accountability and offer zero help to their reps. Reps are down so they just give up. Marketing comes on work trips with zero follow up or help to close the business once they leave. It's a vicious cycle that won't be changed anytime soon.

Here they come...all the cheeseball pics are coming in on Linkedin about how proud reps are to work for Pearson, the great team they are around, how they work for the best company in the industry......WAKE UP people, you are going to be unemployed soon once the the next restructure comes. Will you be proud and feel Pearson is the best company then??

You nailed this-- I would add:

  1. Accept the new initiatives of the company even though it's not the best interest for the rep

  2. Stay loyal to District manager who hired/trained you

  3. Get laid off despite being loyal to company, provided years of great service despite getting screwed of bonus, and no communication from manager.

  4. Never hear again from hug-it-out colleagues who apparently thought highly of your talents and skills.
