Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

November/December layoffs at Pearson

Pearson North American Higher Education will most likely get reorganized in early November/late December so in January new territories and heads can get ready for 2018. Also decisions will be made by then and won't impact orders from bookstores. There is too much redundancy in higher ed so many rep heads and specialists will most likely be downsized. This is not speculation either as many internally are already bracing for the change and interviewing for other positions.

As the previous person mentioned, leaving was the best thing I could have done. The phony RM will turn on you in one second for the silliest of reasons. I am not sure how this continues to happen, but I suppose it's because no one feels their feedback is safe in an exit interview. It's such a small industry I didn't feel safe telling them why I was bailing. If you bad mouth the RM it will likely get back to her. My suggestion, have Robin (one most everyone trusts) call all of those that left Pearson in the Central over the last few months and see if they will talk. Most do not trust the GM because he is oddly close to the RM.

As for the wonderful DM that was demoted and left Pearson because of a cancer diagnosis, this is beyond disgusting. I heard this and thought someone was just being silly, but then heard it from 2-3 other people that specifically heard it from another RM. Are you serious, how about just admit you bullied that person so badly that they finally left. Unreal, get some new RM's or GM's that treat people with respect and don't cry every five minutes over complete nonsense. Buying people gifts and telling them you love them will not work forever, be "authentic" for once.

Diversity and inclusion were never emphasized, supported or respected in Boston.

I left Pearson recently for a competitor and I can tell you it was the best decision I ever made. I have never seen a corporate culture disintegrate as fast it had the last few years. There is absolutely no way they will be able to repair it without cleaning house in management. I had no confidence that would happen anytime soon, so I chose to leave the company.

Anyone with marketable skills and intelligence has left Pearson or been laid off. All that remains is deadwood or insecure bully managers or the protected pets.

Off topic, with s-xual harassment in the news, Boston was a festering cesspool s-xual harassment, bullying and scapegoating. Management just looked the other way or participated. Sick.

Pearson has been in a perpetual state of layoffs since Fallon took over. You would have to have your head buried deep in the sand to assume your position is not at risk at any given moment. This, along with having the worst management in the industry, is the reason all the talent has left or is in the process of leaving.

It was also inaccurate reporting in June 2016 that there were not gonna be changes and they ended up laying off a good number of specialists and HSS reps. Just be prepared for anything in this turbulent industry right now.

This is completely inaccurate.

Any inclination if the changes will mostly be in the sales organization or will other areas of HE be impacted at the same time?

I am not the OP, I heard a very similar thing from multiple sources. I would consider this as a strong rumor

Can anybody confirm this?
